Welcome to Jefferson!

At Jefferson, we nurture the academic, social, and emotional needs of every child through rigorous, interdisciplinary, developmentally appropriate curriculum, and positive, collaborative relationships with all members of our JA family.  Each day at Jefferson, we strive to reach our Big Hairy Audacious Goals (BHAGs): 

  • We will be the best middle school in D.C. for all students.
  • All members of the JA community will love school.

Distance Learning

Distance learning is how DC Public Schools will continue classroom instruction despite and during disruptions due to the COVID-19 school closure.
DCPS created resources at every grade level, so that students from Pre-K through 12th grade can continue their learning while school buildings are closed. When you visit bit.ly/DCPS_ICP, you can get started under the “Learners” tab by choosing your child’s grade level for students in grades Pre-K through 8. 

To help all families get affordable high-speed internet access at home, Comcast is offering two months of free service for new, qualifying Internet Essential customers. Learn more at - https://www.internetessentials.com/covid19
