About This School
Magnet schools are public schools that offer a specialized curriculum or educational philosophy, often with a specific focus or theme. Magnet schools promote student diversity because they are open to students outside the normal school district boundaries and often attract high caliber students through competitive programs. See Jefferson High School's test results to learn more about school performance.

It's a good place if a child or family is looking for a specific career choice. The academies offered include Fashion Business and Marketing, Sports and Entertainment, Hospitality and Lodging, as well as Culinary, just to name a few majors. Jefferson is located in the business district of Tampa Bay, so internships are also a regular program available to Jefferson Magnet Students. It also has a very focused Sports program, and Cheer leading Squad (as well as dancing teams including Step).
The environment is very friendly and the administrators do their jobs. Schedules are flexible to some extent, and the requirement to stay in the school is manageable to any average student. It's clubs are also a handful and fun to participate in, as well as abundant. They provide community hours while building one's self esteem. The rewards to this school are also just as fun, such as "Dragon's Lair" and certain little incentives related to attendance and good grades. It even has a specific program for children to make up failed curriculum points called "Dragon Camp". The school itself (depending on your program) keeps students involved in city activities such as marathons or local shop held fund raisers. Such an example is this year's Super Bowl!
