    My daughter just finished 9th grade at Jefferson and will be starting 10th in the fall. We love Jefferson! It is an excellent school! My daughter is very happy she is doing well in all her classes. Her teachers are always available and helpful when needed. The curriculum is good the environment is healthy. Our daughter is happy everyday when she returns home from school. We drive our daughter 40 minutes each day to attend Jefferson because it was rated as a top school and we are not disappointed.

    What a great school. My daughter transferred this year from a charter school and she is so happy to be at Jefferson. Though she is in 2 advanced classes the homework takes most of the evening. That would be the only 'issue' I have. The school has a ton of afterschool activites and dances and she has meet a lot of great friends.
