Jefferson Middle School is the biggest rival of Nate's school, P.S. 38. Their students are very boastful, and they beat P.S. 38 at almost everything, as said by Nate. Their mascot is the Cavalier. The school is so close to P.S. 38, that it's practically in the same neighborhood. That's why the rivalry is such a big deal.

Jefferson Middle School Students



When Nate Wright and his friends enter the school building, they find that the school is so fancy, that they can barely tell it is even a school. There are glass cases everywhere, which were filled from top to bottom with piles of trophies. There are murals painted on the walls, and even a skylight. There is a rec room for kids to use during free time, with a ping pong table and a vending machine. In their cafeteria (which they call a food court), there is a soft serve ice cream machine and better, more varied food is served there. In the auditorium, the seats recline and all the water fountains have motion-sensors. In the middle of the lobby, on a huge pedestal, there's a cavalier, the school's mascot.


The school has been mentioned to have a soccer field and a field hockey field.



The principal is Mrs. Williger and Mrs. Everett is in the art teahcer and is charge of the schools cartooning club.
