Thomas Jefferson Middle School | What Makes Us Unique?
Thomas Jefferson Middle School was built in 1952 and is the first middle school in Madera Unified. It initially was called a junior high school however, this title changed in recent years to middle school. Many Maderans attended TJ, including staff and administration who walked these very halls as seventh and eighth grade students.
Thomas Jefferson Middle School is unique due to the fact that we host the Newcomer Academy, the academy is designed to support students who have recently arrived to the United States, it is an optional program, the LIVE program, which supports a select population of students with disabilities, and our Social Skills program, which supports our students on the Autistic Spectrum.
Patriot Nation embodies RISE, Respect~Integrity~Safety~Excellence and as always, Patriot Nation will RISE to meet expectations.
