    "We have one student currently at TJ, and another that will be attending in 2015. DCPS has a lot of problems, but TJ is not one of them. Teachers are wonderful, kids are great and the administration is second to none. If I could say better things about them, especially the Principal Mrs. Turner, I would. We drive 30 minutes each way to get our child to this school. Believe me, if you are lucky enough to get in, you will be happy about it every day."

    "Substitute Teacher. One the best schools I have worked at for DCPS. I have been to the worst. I have seen how bad it can get from all angles. Teachers, Admin, Students which all need to be visited by the "Karma Police." This school was the opposite. Kids do work. Kids follow rules for the most part. I give leeway because I am the "dreaded substitute." I used positive motivation, it worked. The admin was beyond reproach. Teachers went out of there way to make me smile or get to know me a bit. I felt like a included member of the team, which is rare in DCPS. Send your kids to this school. But be active in their next school or else all the hard work by the staff there can be undone in what seems to be a single summer and a few days in the surrounding middle schools. I hate to say assimilation can be bad, but believe me they will be in for rough ride if your send them to non magnet schools. I give them a 9 of 10. Take this to be the truth, I am an independent without any bias and do not need to fear or defend this or any institution. I make comments about all schools I attend to inform the public to what I experience. I see the kids for who they really are, because they don't fear me."

    "I adore this school, staff and everything about it. This is like a little private school in Duval County. I can't say enough about this school. I am so glad I found it. I drive 15 miles a day, to and and from. Love it."

    "This is a small, family oriented school hidden on the westside of town. The principal and teachers know most of the students and parents by name. This is not normal at most schools. Upon entering the school there is a family atmosphere that is unlike other schools. Students are well behaved and enjoy coming to school. The teachers truly love their students and treat them with respect. The school is often offering opportunities outside of the regular school day for family fun. Between family nights, carnivals, and dances there is usually something to choose from for inexpensive family entertainment. I am pleased the school has tight security in this day and time. Everyone has to be buzzed in to building at all times. It helps me know my children are safe at school. I have 3 children that attend this school and we have been extremely happy there. They are getting loved and a great education!"

    "Thomas Jefferson is an amazing school. I have had two children at this school one who is still there my oldest has graduated. I love how they are on top of keeping the kids safe. New rules have been put in place but I dont mind at all because I know it is for the safety of the children. I love how everyone there is very friendly and helpful. I always feel welcome there. The principal, teachers and staff are amazing!! This is truly a wounderful school!"
