Welcome to the Jefferson City School System’s website. Jefferson has a rich and proud educational tradition reaching back in time to the year 1818. Martin Institute, chartered in 1818, was the first privately endowed public high school in the United States, and a forerunner to the current Jefferson High School. The citizenry of Jefferson, and its Board of Education enthusiastically pursue the mantle of excellence in all programs and scholastic offerings. Consequently, Jefferson ranks among the finest in curriculum, instruction and extracurricular activities. The Jefferson City School System subscribes to the belief that while it is important to be an advocate for quality in public education, it is more important to serve as an example.
