|New Student Enrollment Students enrolling must reside within the Thomas Jefferson High School boundary. To find your resident school, click on the following link: School Boundaries. Proof of residence in the form of a utility bill, rental/lease agreement, or valid Washington State Driver’s License are required prior to enrollment. Parents/guardians must complete and submit the enrollment documents located on the attached link at the time of registration (see Enrollment Forms). Enrollment forms are also available in the counseling office. Prior to enrollment, students need to be withdrawn from their previous school. Enrollment can be expedited by obtaining the following records from your previous school:
