    Very less interaction between parents and teachers. No homework given to students. Not satisfied with the quality of education in this school.

    My son is finishing Kindergarten at Union. His teacher Miss Hayes is wonderful! We have so enjoyed our experience at Jefferson the entire school staff is amazing and they provide many services to their students and genuinely care about not just learning but about the students as individuals. I can's say enough great things about this school!

    My son has gone here since it opened. Great school! My son has an IEP there and it is always easy to get him extra help. The special teachers always communicate with me regularly and are genuinely interested in helping my son. The kids are well behaved due to the positive reinforcement of the 'Gotta' program. Friendly staff and great teachers.

    The school is new and beautiful. The classrooms are fantastic for not just students but for the educators as well. Only complaint is the coach is a bully to the children and the principle doesn't seem to be motivated to do anything about it. (The principle seems pretty nice besides that. )So if your child begins to complain about the coach being mean take it seriously she really is.

    We have loved being at Jefferson. This is only our second year but our kids have had wonderful teachers and the school itself is brand new and GORGEOUS! They have such a beautiful facility with AMAZING rooms for art music science and computer lab as well as a great library. I have loved working with the office staff as they are very friendly and helpful. The school building is organized in a way to make it feel small and cozy so as not to overwhelm the younger ones. I have not one complaint for this school so far! I would like to see more parent involvement but we are still new so it might just be me...
