  • School was created when Edgewater and Mountair were combined to form Belmont Jr. High and Jefferson High. Class of 1961 was first class to go through both Belmont and Jefferson. Jefferson was a basketball power in its early years and won or went to state every year for 4 straight before being upgraded to higher division. Went to state football in 1960. solid academics early. has changed lately to serve a primarily hispanic student body.

  • A little history. Started out at Mountair, it was a k-12 school, until 5th grade, then Moulhoum Elementary was opened. It Was a brand new elementary school. From there, went back to Mountair which was then Belmount Jr. H.S. for grades 7 through 9th. Then Jefferson was opened and went to school there. We were the first class to complete grades 10-12, graduating in 1963. They gave me a wonderful background to go on and get a Bachelors Degree and be able to spend my working life as an airline pilot, traveling the world over.

  • "Back in the day," I graduated from JHS in 1978. The information about the school mascot costume is incorrect...there was at least one other homemade St. Jeff costume from 1975-1977, made and worn by Judy G.

    Jefferson was, and probably still is, an average school. There were some exceptional teachers and administrators, e.g. Brent Davies, Gus Spano, Pat Dougherty, Mr. Celentano (!), and others, who helped make it a positive and tolerable experience.

  • My class was the first to go through the combined Belmont and Jefferson High School. I graduated in 1961. The school was one of the top new schools in Jeffco at the time. My friend was the one who designed the St. Jeff logo. we were very proud to be Saints. Our basketball team won state championships in 2 of the first 4 years of existence. we went on to compete for state championships in football,cross country and won a championship in baseball my senior year. we were in the top 10% academically for the county. This was a great place to start from and provided me with the basics to lead a good life and go on to earn a bachelors, masters and PhD.
