Thomas Jefferson is designed to serve students from all over the world during their first academic years attending school in the United States. Our multicultural, multilingual school offers eligible students unique cultural and English immersion experiences in a supportive and nurturing environment that embraces ethnic and linguistic diversity. Our highly trained and dedicated staff is committed to accelerating English language acquisition and providing students rich grade-level instruction across the content areas to prepare students for academic and personal success.
A Safe Haven.
Our school serves students from preschool to grade 12, and provides a safe
emotional haven during their first school years in America. Students are grouped for
instruction by grades, levels of English proficiency, and their individual needs.
• Students in grades PreK-8 exit the school based on individual academic progress
at the end of the first or second school year to an elementary school of choice.
• High school students receive an individualized secondary curriculum designed
to help them graduate—from this school or another high school of choice—and
ensure a successful academic pathway to college and career.
