Thomas Jefferson Charter School Reviews

By , a Parent on

High school has a couple of flaming liberal teachers that grade not on knowledge but on how well students agree with their political and environmental views.  Instruction in English, Math, Art and Spanish are excellent.  Sciences and Social Studies are average.  There are no parent-faculty groups; the non-elected leadership team of six run everything.  There are family ties between the TJCS board and the Vallivue SD board.  There is a lot of pom-pom waving by the leadership and administration team.  To keep seats full and monies flowing in there is an overabundance of foreign exchange students.
