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.

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 strangest, most difficult, and most awesome schools around. Much of the population consists of nerds, dorks, and wannabe preps; however, social lives exist. Contains geniuses as well as stupid people who cheat themselves into the school. Stereotypes are not always true and are often supported by the students themselves.
Freshmen flocked to the swimming pool on the third floor on the first day of school.

She cried all day after asian-failing calculus. The B+ on her report card woudl surely lower her GPA.

A high school where you will find some of the biggest nerds and losers anywhere as well as some of the tightest people anywhere.
I have some friends at TJ who are so chill. Sometimes I wish I went there to get away from the ignorant idiots in my school.

Word, but don't forget about all those nerds and losers.

chill place. you can max out studying. or max out chillin. just like anywhere else. yeah people sit on the floor and do homework, but its relaly cause they were being lazy the night before, either that or too busy. i like to refer to it as tiege. its one syllable.
sometimes if i want to make fun of my friend . i can refer to him by the nickname tiege. especially when he does something stupid. its funny

Gets a bad rap for being 100% crazy science/tech losers, and for pretty legit reasons, but is REALLY not all that bad. Guy scene is weak, social life does exist.
Asian Connection is the biggest club but some students actually do act normal and blow of work to hang out.
