    our history

    Historic Jefferson High

    Founded in 1916, Thomas Jefferson High School has been a pillar in our community for over 100 years and is the fourth oldest high school in the Los Angeles Unified School District.  We are often referred to as "Jeff" and proudly known as the Demos, short for our school mascot, the Democrat.  

    For over a century, Jefferson High School has been an asset to our community by educating, transforming, and fostering talent of many notable individuals in music, sports, television, and politics.  Our goals are to inspire greatness in our students and motivate change in the community by empowering them to follow in the footsteps of our prestigious alumni.  

    Over the years, our alumni have proven that hard work and dedication will set you on a path for greatness as a Nobel Prize winner, Olympic Gold Medalist, Grammy winner, Oscar nominee, or a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.  

    We are strong. We are united. We are committed. We are the Mighty DEMOS!
