The Student Systems Administrators are a group of students who maintain computer equipment in
the TJ Computer Systems Lab. We run services which power the entire school's operations,
including the TJ Website (tjhsst.edu), TJ Email accounts (@tjhsst.edu), and a student-run
and developed project known as the TJ Intranet (ion.tjhsst.edu), which is used daily by
students and staff and runs the Eighth Period student activity program. Sysadmins manage over
30 servers and 50 student workstations, all powered by GNU/Linux and open source software.
The TJ Computer Systems Laboratory emphasizes knowledge in all aspects of Computer Science
and the related technology fields, and is a mini-incubator of technological talent. Working
in a UNIX environment, students can take classes in Artificial Intelligence, Parallel
Computing, and Computer Vision that go beyond the AP Computer Science plus Data Structures.
Each year, between ten and fifteen students known as Student Systems Administrators maintain
and advance TJ's computer network, web-based Intranet system, and other infrastructure, with
only minimal involvement from teachers and staff. The resources available at TJHSST allow for
students to gain real world experience and learn how networked environments work.
