Welcome to the Thomas Jefferson High School home page. We are located in the West End of Richmond, Virginia. We offer the International Baccalaureate Programme as a school within a school for students whose interests lie in the study of world languages and international affairs. In addition, we currently offer six languages: Spanish, French, Italian, German, Japanese, and Latin. We also offer Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment classes.

Thomas Jefferson is a comprehensive high school of approximately 850 students who are offered a full menu of extra-curricular and athletic activities. We are especially proud of our marching band, music program, and athletic teams who bring home many competitive honors. Our teachers and staff members will work together to provide a challenging and nurturing academic environment to help ALL our students reach the highest levels of learning possible.

We are thankful for the support of our community partners and parents. With your help, we hope to achieve the goals we have set for ourselves and our students. We invite you to become an active member of our family and encourage students to participate in Viking athletics and activities. I also encourage each of you, as well as your child, to become an active member of our school’s PTSA. Together we can make a difference in the lives of our students!
