Key Components to TJCS

Our mission statement at Thomas Jefferson Charter School revolves around creating virtuous citizen leaders. Our key components revolve directly around that concept.

High School

Our students are required to complete community and family service each of the 4 years they attend our school. Our goal is to create young men and women who value helping others. Our students receive high school credit for these activities and it shows up on their high school transcripts. 

Middle School – Grades 7-8

Much of what we do in grades 7 and 8 is directly involved with the transition from elementary to high school. We believe a virtuous citizen leader must learn to deal with change…but it is one of our jobs to help them with this skill. Most students who do not graduate from high school have a terrible 9th grade year. This can be directly attributed, in many cases, to kids who are not ready for the change to high school where every grade counts, where they have 6-7 different teachers, where teachers can’t keep them in from recess to finish work…the list can go onward. In our middle school, our kids have 4 different teachers for the major subjects. This is much more challenging for many kids. It creates challenges in the middle years; but better to have the challenges then than in 9th grade where the credits for graduation start counting!

Grades K-6

Math concept boards are present in each classroom. Students will work on all different areas in math every day…computation, geometry, measurement, statistics, problem solving, etc. Grade level work as well as above grade level work is practiced by every student, every day. We believe that a virtuous citizen leader is a well educated person.
