    My son is in the 3rd grade with some minor learning diffrences but is thriving at his new school. He is happy and he is thriving. At his last school home work and class work were a challenge for him to complete but at Jefferson he is much more comfortable and confindent.

    Jefferson is a fantastic loving and caring atmosphere to send your kids to. It does not matter the class they are in all the teachers are the same THEY CARE! And they work so well with the parents. You want to be involved for your child and for the teachers. They have a great music department as well. We also like the academic format that they use. They challenge the children at a young age and it shows the children that they can do great things at a young age. I just can't say enough good things about this school.
