Jefferson Ratings & Reviews

October 02, 2018 Submitted by a parent
We transferred from Franklin Elementary (A fantastic school) to Jefferson due to the S.A.I.L. program for our oldest daughter. We had no idea, however, that where as her educational quality would increase, that of our youngest would drastically decrease. Our kindergartner's teacher lost her on the 4th day of school, refuses to apologize or admit fault, while admitting that the incident did happen. She only admitted this once she was confronted and after multiple interactions still refused to apologize or explain how it would be better in the future. The principal was informed of the situation, and was willing to transfer our kindergartner to another class, until he learned that the teacher was the sole reason we wanted a transfer. He then refused to transfer and said we were welcome to go back to our home school instead. Splitting up siblings between two schools, even though there was space, because he doesn't feel the teacher did anything incorrect. Would NOT recommend.

We transferred our girls from Lister to Jefferson last year and within months it was like a difference between night and day. Both of my girls were loving school again, and still do! The teachers make learning fun, the school encourages creativity as well as ensuring that they meet their academic goals. But they don't just shove college and test scores down the kids' throats. It greatly helps that parents are more involved and successful fundraisers allow the kids to enjoy fun things. Glad we made the switch!

I have a 5th Grader this year and she has been at Jefferson since Headstart. I love everything about this school. The staff is very caring and understanding. On top of any and all issues.
