Colegio Jefferson was founded in May 1974 by Mrs. Silvia Alvarez de Saiden and her daughter Mrs. Silvia Saiden de Navarro.
The school opened its doors in September of that same year in “Quinta Tonteria”, located in Plaza Yare, San Roman, Caracas. They began with a small group of
preschool children. At that moment, the main objective was the formation of the students with an integral education, offering English as a second language.
Since its founding Colegio Jefferson has been a private coeducational school registered in the Ministry of Education.
Over time, enrollment increased. The school facilities were insufficient, and during the 1985-1986 academic year the board of directors along with the community of
parents and representatives decided to give continuity to the curriculum of studies and in this manner give rise to the levels of middle and high school.
To achieve this goal, it was necessary to build a new school in 1987. It is currently located in the residential area of Colinas de Valle Arriba
and was inaugurated on October 3, 1988.
Today Colegio Jefferson prides itself in offering a top bilingual education to its students. It provides an academically rigorous curriculum with a concentration
in the sciences. There are over nine hundred students enrolled. After 37 years it is one of the most successful private schools in Caracas, Venezuela.
