• Frequently Asked Questions

    How big is the school?  What is your average class size ?
    We have approximately 1300 students at Jefferson.  Our core classes average 29 students per class.

    How are your Academically Gifted students served?
    Students who have been tested and are certified Academically Gifted are grouped separately for
    Language Arts.  Since math is self-selective, any student who needs the acceleration and enrichment of the advanced math curriculum may choose to take Advanced Math courses.


    Do you have Exceptional Children's programs?
    Yes, we have cross-categorical Exceptional Children's classes.  An EC student may be served in a resource or inclusion setting depending on his or her IEP.  Students in resource settings may be mainstreamed into some core classes.

    What are Jefferson's strengths?
    We are proud of our tradition of academic excellence, outstanding arts programs, highly successful athletic teams, communication with parents and infusion of technology throughout the curriculum.

    How do I enroll my child at Jefferson?
    Your permanent address determines your residential school.  Any student living in our residential area may choose to attend Jefferson.  If you are in our zone, but residential to another school, you may select Jefferson on the Choice card available to you in the spring of each year. 
    Enrollment of students from outside the residential area is based on space available as determined by the school system's Pupil Assignment Office.
