Mission Statement

Thomas Jefferson Middle School recognizes that each of our students comes to us with unique and individual needs. Our mission is to challenge all of our students to reach their greatest potential through a fully integrated curriculum. We encourage students to become lifelong learners by developing a passion for knowledge and a desire to enhance their community and the world around them. We strive to create a diverse community that fosters mutual respect and social responsibility enhanced by a strong partnership between home, school and the community.

We Believe all Students:
  • benefit when the school staff, parents, and community collaborate in the education process.
  • need to be provided a solid academic foundation, which includes communication, research, and technology skills.
  • need skills to adapt, compete, and continue learning in an ever-changing society.
  • need to feel valued and respected as individuals with diverse experiences and backgrounds while developing character, citizenship, and responsibility.
