Jefferson Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

So far the teachers are good, my child has been there for 2 years. The teachers are pretty responsive when you bring up concerns. Principal Hutchinson is great, very visible and knows her kids by name and personality. Overall good school.

Overall, my kids have had a very positive experience. Most of the teachers were great, one 4th grade teacher was not so great but I wonder if that might be the curriculum. The principal is responsive (much more so than the former Marshall principal). The after school enrichment program is wonderful. Parent involvement is incredible and includes a yearbook done with a graphic designer, choreography by former Broadway performers and professional NYC choreographers, and an outside beautification project done by a landscape architect. One Book One School was a great event. Definitely much more positive stuff than negative stuff. I asked one of my kids, "What do you like about school?" and they said, "Everything."

School helped me to achieve through elementary school, with a lot of supporting teachers of note. I am now at Columbia, and I often remember the environment that was so centered around learning, yet at the same time seeked to advance the students through many activities and there was always lots of parent involvement. The review by a parent below me is one very characteristic of many citizens of Maplewood/South Orange: priveledged with lots of self entitlement. If your child isn't performing it MUST be the teachers fault. How could your child possibly do less than perfection? They must just hate him/her! You may either interpret the teachers as stepford wives, or as faculty that is fiendly with each other and makes the school a relaxed, comfortable place, that strives to make you feel like a family (trust me they give a lot of speeches about that, it gets annoying). Personally, after having gone there (and knowing the excuses I told my parents) I would call it the latter.

Teachers treat the school like there own personal social club.... School is run by the stepford wives... all students are expected to be robots.... not a good school for anyone that doesnt fit into the mold.
