Jefferson Community School

Jefferson Community School is a thriving learning community with a common purpose: to forge connections. Located in in the heart of Port Townsend, WA. students from 7th-12th grade participate in a unique experiential education that offers strong academics, a commitment to community and service, and expeditions near and far. Our dedicated teachers routinely take kids out of the classroom to experience learning in the world around them. You might see them at the beach analyzing kelp, on Main Street sketching interesting sights and people, or in the park firing the catapults they built in Physics class.

Students who attend JCS truly live our motto:

“Community at Home – Kinship with the World”

Everyone needs to pitch in to make this the best Gala ever. Please check out the new Gala Website. Then sign in and check out the items that have already been donated. Be thinking of what you can donate to the auction. Susan O’Brien (a former parent) and Stan Cummings (board member) are co-chairing the event this year.
