Greetings Raider Families,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I am excited to welcome you all to the Raider Family! I hope you are rested and ready for an incredible new year. I am truly proud to be the principal of this amazing school. When you come to TJ, you are a part of the family. We want the best for every part of our family.
This year marks the 50th anniversary year for Thomas Jefferson High School! We have an incredible history of academics, athletics, arts, activities, and school spirit. We will continue preparing our kids for their next steps in life, whatever that may look like. We look forward to celebrating this great year with you.
Thomas Jefferson High School is an International Baccalaureate school (IB). We believe in providing a well-rounded, globally minded education that challenges each learner at their own level. We believe that all students can learn at the highest levels when provided support and guidance. We work hard to develop relationships with our scholars while finding their passions to engage them as a part of our TJ community.
When our scholars arrive, the staff and I are prepared to partner with ALL families to show our commitment to empowering the mind and heart of the whole scholar. As partners, we share in the responsibility of ALL of our scholars’ success. Please know that each staff member is committed to the responsibility of supporting our scholars and we will do our very best to carry out the duties that are connected with our responsibility. It is our goal that ALL scholars will find success in high school and beyond.
I look forward to working closely with you and your family to support your students as they prepare for their next steps after high school. Please feel free to contact me at any point. I am excited and honored to be a part of this school community and I thank you for your support. I look forward to connecting with you in the coming year!
