Home of the Bulldogs!
Welcome to Jefferson ISD! JISD is located in history rich Jefferson in northeast Texas. The JISD school board, our district staff, parents, the community, and other partners work together to grow every student every day in the direction of their choosing by putting people and opportunities in place so that all of our students may own their tomorrows. JISD is home to more than 1,100 students. Students are never numbers at JISD. The relatively small size of our district allows us to provide the individual care and instruction every student deserves as we help them realize their goals and prepare them for their next steps. JISD provides multiple layers of protection to ensure a safe environment for our students to learn and grow.
We are highly focused on academic achievements. Our educational offerings start with a well-developed reading program at our Primary and Elementary schools so that our students are able to stay ahead. At Jefferson High School we offer more opportunities than many much larger districts. JHS offers 11 CTE pathways and 17 associated certificates, over 56 dual credit offerings, a core complete track, and an Associate Degree program. We are a 1-to-1 district and utilize over 4,000 technological devices throughout the district.
JISD has strong extracurricular programs. Our athletics programs are very well developed, competitive, and most are very successful each year. The Jefferson Band program is growing and improving each year. Other extracurricular/co-curricular opportunities include junior high and high school One Act Play, TAFE, DECA, HOSA, NTHS, NJHS, NHS, FFA, JH and HS Cheer, Strutters, and Color Guard, along with several other clubs/community service organizations.
We work every day to provide our students a quality education and to develop/expand opportunities for our students. The JISD website provides the most current information for our district.
