I have two daughters at this school and I love it. The parents are really great and work together to make it a fun place for the students. The teachers are very good too and get very involved. The PTA and Boosters are big here and do a lot of activities. This school has a library, a computer specialist and the AR (Accelerated Reading) system in place.
I love this school. Great teachers, Great staff, and the PTA is wonderful. My daughter is completing the first grade and I look forward to next year. I have not had any issues and all my questions have been answered and worries put to rest.
Love this school. My husband and I both moved to Burbank, and now our oldest child attends this school. This was the best decision we ever made and she is doing great. She welcomes the knowledge she gains with a very positive attitude and outlook which is all thatnks to her amaizing teacher who knows how to push her just right enough to want to excel. I feel that the school communicates effectively with perants on information pertinent to kids, education, safety (so important). I have nothing but GREAT to say about this school, its officials, students and parents.
We have been VERY pleased with Jefferson Elementary. We have recently moved her from another district with my husband's new job and have been immensely pleased with the office staff, excellent principal, and my sons amazing first grade teacher. My son has some speech and occupational therapy needs and they have also been wonderful in considering and addressing his specific needs. The school has a very good "Peaceful Playground" policy for recess that teaches kids the activities and games that ARE acceptable instead of harping on those not allowed. The school uses incentive slips for recognition, and the principal knows and interacts with her students with kindness and enthusiasm. The PTA and music programs have also been excellent. We feel fortunate to be at this school.
Great school, awesome principal. Office staff is very rude! Teachers are amazing, truly! My son has really excelled and I couldn't be happier. The PTA is super strong and parental involvement is very high in the classrooms.
I feel the same way about the office staff, moody and just plain rude. I haven't seen much action coming from the principle regarding issues with teachers that shouldn't be teaching. Last year wasn't the greatest, but we are fortunate to have AMAZING teachers this year!
Great Principal and Teachers. Parents get involved. Rude and arrogant office staff. That type of attitude should not be present near children.
I went there and my three kids went there. Great teachers and great principles and wonderful memories.
so far I love the way my kids are so into the teachers and their studies....they have a great helping systems and thanks to all the parent that can help make the teachers work a bit easier.
My son's teacher Ms. Kubeczka just won teacher of the year at TJ elementary school. Her and Ms. Kistler (the principal) make TJ the best elementary school for my son and others.
I love this school. My daughter did not go to preschool so the first week was rough but she excells now and I could not be happier. I volunteer once a week and see all of the fun projects that she does and all of learning that goes on. Excellent
wonderful teachers, kids! This school is amazing! What great partnerships!
We have been pleased with the level of education our children have received at Jefferson. The teachers are dedicated and caring and parents are involved. Great school!
Amazing teachers and involved parents make this a top performing school year after year! My kids love it and we love it.
Thomas Jefferson is a welcoming community of parents and teachers! My daughter has thrived at TJ and I love the support she gets from her teachers. We are so fortunate to be able to attend such a wonderful school!!
Caring Staff, Teachers and very involved Parents ensure our kids have quality education and arts options!
Dedicated teachers and parent work together for kids at this school.
