Jefferson Public School was an elementary school located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. By 3978, the school was presumably decommissioned and lay in ruins, or may have had no traces remaining to prove it ever existed. However, it was referenced in that faraway time as Colonel George Taylor told Zira and Cornelius he was an alumnus of Jefferson School, where he learned how to read and write. It was also brought up by Dr. Zaius, who disbelieved Taylor's claim of such an educational institution, instead thinking the community upon which it was situated, Fort Wayne, was a military code of sorts.
Behind the scenes
This fictitious public school shares the name of a real public school, also in Fort Wayne, named Jefferson Middle School.
