Thomas Jefferson Middle School’s mission is to provide all students with a learning environment that meets the needs of the whole child academically, physically, emotionally, and socially. We will prepare our students for their future roles as productive citizens and life-long learners. We educate a variety of students such as our bilingual/ESL, regular and gifted education, and monolingual and bilingual special education programs.
Our mission is based upon the developmental needs of adolescents. The faculty and staff have a strong commitment to the middle school philosophy. This commitment includes the concept of teaming in order to assist students in their transition to the next level. Teachers are teamed by grade levels with special emphasis on the needs, interests, and learning styles of our students. Teams operate similarly to “mini schools” within themselves, and deliver unique instruction within the school. The team becomes the student’s in-school “family.”
By providing only the best educational experiences for our students, we will build a reputation among educators and within our community as the premiere choice for middle school instruction.
