Thomas Jefferson High School is a secondary school in Northwest Dallas, Texas that serves grades 9-12. The school is part of the Dallas Independent School District and is located at 4001 Walnut Hill Lane, Dallas, Texas 75229. The school is named after the third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, and locally is known simply as "TJ."
The school's colors are Columbia blue and cardinal red and its mascot is the Patriot. Until 1972, the (Confederate) Rebel served as school mascot and the Confederate Battle Flag was a recognized school emblem. The negative associations of both symbols led to a change following desegregation of Dallas schools in the early 1970s.〔Karen Elliott. "Black students stay out" (article about a walkout by black students protesting the refusal of many white students to attend the majority-black schools to which they had been assigned), ''The Dallas Morning News'', September 14, 1971, page 1A. ''"Jefferson students also complained about the Rebel theme at the school, despite white students' agreement not to fly the Rebel flag or play Dixie at football games."''〕〔Karen Elliott. "Estes to get complaints," ''The Dallas Morning News'', September 15, 1971, page 1A.〕〔"Students vote today" (coverage of student vote for new symbols), ''The Dallas Morning News'', April 13, 1972, page 1D.〕 In the 2005-06 school year, the school celebrated its 50th anniversary.〔(TJ Alumni Association Main Page )〕
In 1987 John Kincaide, the athletic director of DISD, said that the district is prepared to allow Jefferson to be reclassified by the University Interscholastic League (UIL) from athletic class 5A to athletic class 4A; the UIL had the possibility of demoting the school to athletic class 4A as part of its biannual reclassification.〔"(DISD WILL LET PINKSTON, TJ DROP TO CLASS AAAA )."
