    Jefferson is EXTRORDINARY! I am a parent who child has a reading deficiency and from the day my son entered the school the teachers and support staff have been phenomenal! My husband and I are both very impressed with the devotion of the teachers the well rounded program and the involvement of parents. It is an amazing introduction to the Westfield school system. Jefferson is a rare jewel with an encouraging environment!
