Hello and welcome to the Jefferson Alternative website. I hope you are able to navigate through our new website in a more efficient manner.
The mission of Jefferson Alternative is: To inspire young adolescents as they grow intellectually and developmentally in a positive, safe and multidisciplinary environment. Jefferson will prepare students for socially responsible lives in a changing global society.
We must take back our community!
We must de-normalize the perceived
status quo i.e. dropping out of school is okay,
gang banging is the norm, lack of parental engagement is acceptable, and the myth that education is not important.
Moreover, I want you to know that your life, and your freedom are priceless and that you are loved.
