The school was founded in 1911 and was originally intended to be a high school. However, when David H. Hickman High School opened in 1927, Jefferson became a junior high school.

The technology education department at Jefferson Junior High School is notable for receiving a number of Columbia Public Schools Foundation grants, including the Carpe Diem grant and the Building Intelligent Robots grant.
