Life After TJS

TJS is a great school, but it's small. Will my child be adequately prepared academically and socially going from 8th grade at TJS into a much larger high school?

“Being at TJS through eighth grade taught me how to interact comfortably with adults as well as classmates. I also developed confidence speaking in public. “I felt well-prepared for all my new classes.”

Jefferson School students move on to high school and college fully prepared for academic success in a variety of challenging public, private and charter school settings. Like Ian, many graduates come back to visit and are eager to discuss how well prepared they are. Students confidently make smooth transitions into both the secondary and post-secondary phases of their academic careers.
