    My son attends T.J. and he LOVES it ! The teachers and staff are all very helpful with any questions you have. My son has excelled in all his classes! Best school in Newton!

    I taught at TJ for five years. It was a great community of learners and teachers. The teachers are very involved in their students' lives. The school has a very strong lower grade level team. I would recommend this school above all others in Newton.
