Our son is in Jefferson and we are more than pleased with the attention from the teachers and administration. Any concern we've ever had has been answered in a timely manner. All of the family events have been extremely successful and fun. The only downside I'd say would be a lack of technology... there are some netbooks and computers in the library they share... but I think this is more of a district wide issue and not particular to this school. I believe with the upcoming standardized testing needing to use computers they will likely be investing more.

I have 2 children in Jefferson School and we have all a lot of satisfactions with this school
My child has attended Jefferson kindergarten and 1st grade. We've been very satisfied with the quality of her teachers and the progress she has made. Parents here are very involved. If there was one area for improvement it would be smaller class sizes. I believe there are around 26 kids in the class.
