Jefferson Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

Absolutely horrible and promotes bullying does not inform parents
March 10, 2016 Submitted by a community member
Jefferson elementary has a caring staff who love these kids. The diversity is awesome and my kids benefit everyday from knowing others with many different backgrounds and cultural experiences. I have two very high achieving students and their needs are met with small classroom sizes and personal attention. Because this school serves children who speak many different languages they score lower on state standardized assessments and I think many parents are scared when they see the great schools score. I would encourage parents to visit the school, talk with parents and get to know the staff. Jefferson is a great school!

My children have been attending Jefferson for over five years now. There is a lot of diversity at this school and I think that scares some parents away. I love it. We have many friends who are from other countries like Africa, Mexico, Iran and Laos and they are some of the most humble and polite children I've ever met! The test scores are lower because many of the students are learning English and may not understand all the questions yet. They also have the deaf and hard of hearing program and my children have learned a lot of sign language from watching the interpreters! Because the school is title 1 there are many extra support staff which I love because my children have always had extra hands in class. Even if your child isn't struggling but shows above grade level work in reading or math they are put into a special group. This has helped my children advance quickly and succeed through Junior High and High School in advanced placement classes. If you are a parent who is concerned about your child's education become involved! They have an amazing PTA that holds community carnivals, events and small fundraisers through the year. They even make a yearbook for the graduating 6th graders. They welcome volunteers and I have gone weekly to help students with reading, math or art. I think you get back what you put into your school. They have many assemblies that are fun and educational, the STEM science bus visits, Wagons Ho comes every other year for the 4th and 5th grades, the orchestra program is excellent, the choir is engaging and they put on awesome programs, the sports are fun for everyone (they have basketball and track for 5th and 6th graders). Jefferson is a thriving elementary school in our area and I am so thankful for the amazing staff and teachers who care about the students success. If more parents would give Jefferson a chance the school would only get stronger.

My son has been attending Jefferson since he entered kindergarten. He has enjoyed most of his classes and teachers. He loves greeting all the different staff members, most of whom he knows and is known by. He has had problems with bullying, past and present. The teachers, principal, and other staff have been very helpful in fixing that. Especially the principal and his teachers. The principal is amazing and incredibly kind. She tries to make time for any parent or guardian that comes in with questions and concerns. She cares about the students that the school. Most of the teachers are fantastic, and I say most since I haven't meet all of them yet. They want their students to succeed at school. They are a little overwhelmed in some of the classes, one of the joys of being a Title 1 school, but they do their best for their students. While the school is not perfect, and no school ever is, the faculty does their best with what they have to see to the success and happiness of the students.

My son has attended Jefferson since kindergarten. He is now in 5th grade. Ever since the new principal took over three years ago my son has been subjected to bullying and nothing ever happens. His P.E teacher has even seen it happen and told him to "walk it off". What a joke this school is. Don't send your children here!
