A great school filled with academically masochistic students. Offers many rigorous courses, such as Quantum Mechanics and Differential Equations. Includes a wealth of different students; yes, there are jocks and preps. Some of the most amazing teachers that exist teach there. Here are some common stereotypes about TJ:

1. They're all nerds.
There's nothing wrong with being a nerd. It just means that they'll end up being more successful than most people, that's all.

2. No one does drugs there.
Is that a bad thing?

3. Everyone's stuck-up.
And there aren't any of those people in your school? Obviously, there are some arrogant people, but most of the population is accepting and intelligent.

4. No one has a social life.
You don't go to the school.

5. You get like six hours of homework every day.
...only if you're a Junior.

6. Everyone's Asian.
Ok, so there are a lot of Asians in the school. Doesn't mean that people shun you just because you're in another ethnic group.

7. ...there's more, but I need to finish my French homework so I don't get screwed tomorrow.

Really, it gives you a good, solid foundation. Go there if you don't believe me.
1: Omg, liek every1s azn!!!!!!111111
2: Actually, most people are white, and Asians aren't to be feared. Unless you want them to be.

1: Thomas Jefferson sucks because you're all nerds.
2: Say that when I'm your boss fifteen years from now.

One of the highest ranking high schools in the United States of America with a reputation for producing some of the most talented people on the globe. Population includes several nerds, losers, and geeks, but also some jocks, like any ordinary school. Contrary to popular belief, the vast majority of the population has a social life, and actually find it necessary to interact with others on a daily basis. The Aud Lob and the swimming pool on the 3rd floor tend to be the top hangouts of this educational oasis where freshmen take technology/engineering rather than world history. Also tends to produce various stereotypical thoughts such as a nerd school or one filled with students with no life or 6 hours of homework a night or a place with no alcohol or drugs or a school that performs terribly at sports or students that sleep with their TI-84 Plus Silver Edition calculators at night. However, only a few of these stereotypes are truthful, while most are simply urban legends created by people who were upset because they applied and did not get in. Some, however, are true:
Only at TJ do the jocks play calculator games.

Only at TJ can one be amazed by the incredible technology laboratories, then wonder why half the water fountains don't work.

Only at TJ does taking geometry freshman year means you're the stupidest of everyone and taking calculus sophmore year isn't a big deal.

The guy on the nickel
The guy who "wrote" the Declaration of Independence (he only put words on paper)
The 3rd president of the US
The guy that had an affair with Sally Hemmings
The guy who was "best buddies" with John Adams, but then had disagreements with him about political issues, causing them to split apart and not talk to each other for 12 years.
The guy who died exactly 50 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence (7/4/1826), same day as John Adams (coincidence much?)
TJ gave Napoleon money to fund his war against Europe.

the third president of the united states. Became president at the end of John Adams term in 1800. Major accomplishments include the Louisiana purchase and the reduction of the federal debt by decreasing the size of the federal government and military. Jefferson believed in the enlightenment philosophies of John Locke, and thusly believed taht governments purpose was to secure the rights of life, liberty, and proprety, and nothing more (he would be disgusted with the size of the gov today). His motto was " the gov which rules best rules least" . Also wrote the declaration of independence.
I am a Jeffersonian, I despise big government loving socialist pigs.

Someone who wrote the following: when in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Indipendence.

Thomas Jefferson founded The University of Virginia in 1819. UVA is the number two public school in the country and is ranked 23rd nationally at the same level as Georgetown. This beautiful school is rife with tradition and beauty. All one needs to do is walk around grounds on a spring day to see way all of the students at this storied institution love their school. The traditions at UVA are interesting and unique. From streaking the lawn down to the statue of Homer then kissing him on the bum and then running back up to the rotunda to say goodnight to Mister Jefferson to steam tunneling in the underground system of tunnels which brings heat to the buildings around grounds. Students here are committed to learning and improving the world around them. Some famous graduates of the University of Virginia include Katie Couric, Robert F. Kennedy, Tina Fey, Woodrow Wilson, and Tiki Barber. Students can be seen at all hours of the night at the 24 hour University library, Clemons, studying and writing papers. These students committed to excellence, have a no cheating, lying, or stealing policy institutionalized in the honor code and upheld by the honor committee. This single sanction code ensures Professors can trust their students and that students can trust each other. Those members of the University community who cannot abide by the honor code are removed from the University. Most students love the honor code however and would not get rid of something that makes their school unique. The University of Virginia is one of the best schools in the world and the premier undergraduate experience.

TJ was also the third president, he helped write the declaration, and he was the president under which the US bought half of its land mass (the Louisiana Purchase). He also had many other contributions. UVA is the best though.
