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.
