My son went to school here k-6 and the only reason he stayed was because his teachers were very understanding to his medical condition and the PTA president was a close friend and let him use their bathroom and office to change if he needed to. But the parents are mostly Spanish speaking which I wouldn't have a problem with if the school didn't do all of their functions in Spanish first then in English. As a single working mom my time like every other working individual is precious. Assemblies open house back to school night all 30-45 minutes longer because you have to sit through the Spanish portion before hearing it in English. They have programs for Spanish speaking parents when I think those funds should go to the kids. I have a 3 year old and I will def NOT be sending him there.

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.
The Special Day Classes that are provided for learning disabiled students is rich in content and provides alot of stimuli. They really take an interst in their kids.
My kids are new to this school the teachers are great really involved the ones that I have knowledge of 5 and 6 grades have a school band and there is a mariachi which I don't have much information about it they have regular PE classes but the school is not meeting the federal level on English math is going great..but unfortunately there is not much parent involvement and the school really need them.The School have the not child left behind program and other programs running to help the students improve in the areas needed it is a good school will be much better is the parents get more involved.
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.
