    Both of our children attended Jefferson and we couldn't imagine a better school. The teachers love what they do and it shows. Years later or kids keep in touch with their former teachers.

    My son went to Jefferson Elementary for Kindergarten. I loved the atmosphere of the school. The teachers were helpful and very proactive. They had a tremendous extended day kindergarten that was a great asset for my son. This was a great fit for our family and I was said when we had to move out of the school district. Challenging academic programs were supported by teachers who cared
