Thank you for your interest in Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST). Making the decision to pursue admission to a selective secondary high school is not an easy one to make and we want you to know the Admissions Office is here to support you. Our goal is to ensure that all students and families are provided the same level of information in order to successfully navigate the process. We believe the best way to begin this journey is through open communication between our prospective students and their parents. We look forward to assisting you and exposing you to all TJHSST offers to students interested in STEM.
