    This is where daughter is going. I am really happy I joined her here. Previously for Kinder and 1st grade she went to different school. She was crying to go to that school. But to Jefferson she is really enjoying. Great teachers. They know how to make a kid study well. They will encourage them in such a way kids are loving to read and they are enjoying reading. I am very happy with this school...

    It is a very clean organized school with an amazing staff.

    Very heavy trilingual population-learning is slowed down by the need to explain things to 3 very different cultures.
