Jefferson Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

May 01, 2018 Submitted by a community member
Jefferson Elementary school is actually a very welcoming and pleasant place where all children are challenged at their own level. The majority of the children come from Latino families and are bilingual. Too much emphasis is put on state test scores to make this school look like a ineffective building. State test scores cannot measure students' daily progress and their emotional and social development. Many children opt out and do not even take the state tests. The school offers one period a day where children are grouped by ability and individual needs are met. The teachers and the administration know the children well. If you have concerns or questions about the school, call for a tour and visit some classrooms. First hand, current experience will give anyone a better understanding of the school and the community.

My daughter attended this school last year. 2009-2010, I had to pull her out mid year. She was in kaliedescope, which is supposed to be for really smart kids but she had poor reading comprehension skills and no writing skills. The amount of homework given was almost nothing, I spoke to other moms whose kids attended other New Rochelle schools and got quite a suprise when they showed me the homework and school work their kids were receiving. It was like day and night. I complained to principal who was Mrs. Slotkin at the time without much success. . There are a lot of students from other countries which is a plus because kids get exposure to other cultures. The afterschool activities are federallly funded and are only available to low income families and kids that are doing poorly academically. There are a lot of social issues that this school has to deal with because of the area. They do a great job in this aspect by helping a lot of parents with social problems/.social needs.

My child was in the magnet program at Barnard for 4 years, so I became friends with many of my child's peers.Barnard only goes up to 2nd grade and my child was zoned for Jefferson in 3rd grade I spoke to the mothers at the other New Rochelle schools and we compared homework, school projects, curriculum.and after school activities as well as field trips. I can honestly say the homework from Jefferson is lower standards than the other district schools. I became upset when the mother's whose children attended other New Rochelle schools told me about all the things their kids were doing in school in the same grade. When I did not believe my ears, I compared homework and saw with my own eyes. 4th grade homework at Jefferson looks like 3rd grade homework from Trinity and Ward School.
