    The staff at this school has worked tremendously hard the last 5 or 6 years to increase student achievement. They have been extremely successful. They made the most growth on the state tests in the district. Pretty amazing. The entire staff is fully trained to support the programs happening there. They are a very collaborative team that only focuses on student learning. This is an amazing place to be and learn and if your children go there or if you have had the chance to teach there you are fortuante. I was a fortunate one. I am a great teacher today because of Jefferson.

    There are many programs for students to get involved in after school. The principal is very conscious of student learning. She observes and works with all teachers to make sure that all lessons are based on standards.

    Both of my children have gone to Jefferson. I have always found the teachers to be very understanding and patient.
