    I Go To Jefferson Middle School. And Im In The 7th Grade. The Best Teachers That Help Me With Anything That I Need Would Be Ms.Curren And Ms.Shelton. There Has Been A Great Change In The Kids Actions. More People Are Responsible And Are Very Good At Learning Things.

    My son is in the sixth grade this year. He has one awesome teacher. His name is Mr. Worsham. I wish all teachers cared as much as him.

    I definitely think that any middle school has its problems and will have its troubled students ( this is probably the toughest age for students). This school compared to many is actually above average. There are some great teachers here and a few not so great ones but overall this is a pretty good school.

    I go to this school and i must say it has it's problems.Although at times things might go wrong this school is actually really good.I am in my 8th grade year and i have learned so much in the past 3 years.They have great teachers they do a great job of preparing students for highschool......But there will always be a couple of students that are bad influences but our great principles will take care of that...I am so happy i got the pleasure to go to thomas jefferson middle school for 3 amazing years!

    My daughter will be in 7th Grade for the 2008-2009 school year. Last year she had the best teachers! Mr. Buckmaster Ms. Gantt Mrs. Mann and Mr. White were fabulous! I have a great amount of respect for the Principal Gloria Torres and her office staff. I'm not terribly impressed with the overall state of the OKC Public School system but this school is definitely a strong positive gem among the other options available in south OKC. We are happy that this school's administration and faculty are above average!
