    This is a wonderful school. My grandson Sean is in the 5th grade and I wish he could go back to TJ next year. Everyone knows his name and he knows their names. I like a smaller school because there is more one to one interaction. He has had wonderful teachers from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school seems to support their students. Thank you

    My daughter has just started kindergarten at this school. I love it. I wish the PTA would reach out more to new parents. I have signed up and tried to get info but con not seem to get a hold of anyone. But the staff is great they make a real effort to know all the students and parents.

    Thomas Jefferson is a fantastic school. I have 2 kids that transfered from a school in Jefferson County Kentucky and the difference is wonderful! All the teachers we have had dealings with have a true interest in my children's success and the steps needed to get them to the acheivement level they should be at. TJ provides an outstanding educational foundation for elementary students!

    I attended this school as a child and now my child attends there. Tomas Jefferson is a great school with a friendly staff. They are always willing to help!

    I have two children that have attended through all of the elementary grades and have been very pleased with all the teachers. I found them to be willing to go the extra mile for the students. I would rate the school a 10 on the 1 to 10 scale.
