Only thing good about this school is the teachers. The principal, office staff, and campus monitors are rude, hurried in response to your concerns, unwelcoming and in the eyes of my children uncaring and even unfair when it come to attending to your child or their own that attend there. Seems to me after five years of having my children attend here Clovis unified needs to take a closer look at the quality of leadership at Jefferson. Reviews of this school sadly are dropping. And I completely agree with the prior post.
My Kids have went to this school for over 5 years.I have to agree with what one parent said about the principal. This school also has a bad problem with bully's. He will not suspend because it makes the schools scores go down.
The staff and teachers are pretty good - but the principal is not very loving of children and not the best at his job. He only seems to care about tests scores. He couldn't care less if a child suffered - as long as his bottom line was doing well. The community of the school is molded by the principal, and this one ruins Jefferson for most of the parents. What does it say when the parents don't like the principal and can hardly talk to him? He is not very social or approachable, and he is the reason we no longer like this school. Many parents meet and talk about the same issues. It's a very sad situation.
I love this school. My child has been going to this school for 4 years now. My step children also went to this school. I think that this new generation has gotten harder for the kids but it has to. I have stay living in this area so that my son stays at this school. They do have wonderful teacher who care about our kids education and their future. They want them to be very successful . There is nothing wrong with that and we as parents. So be gratefully to have teachers like that. I know that my child get slot of homework but it will only benefit him.
This is a terrific school with veteran teachers and a caring staff. They have wonderful after school programs. My children (4) who attended this school had nothing but wonderful experiences and a great start to their education. It is an award winning school because of the hard work put in by parents, teachers, administration, and the kids.
I have to dissagree, for one math is important, not saying that others aren't but this math that they teach really helps in junior high, i attendend this school and i thank my teachers for so much math help. And the 'overload' on homework is a no, it's a normal amount and it doesn't hurt. i thank my teachers at jefferson elementary for 7 great years at their school.
This is a terrible school! They emphasize mostly on Math and disregard all other subjects. They assign too much homework and stress the children out with information overload. The school is all about getting high test scores in Math and they do not seam to care about the children at all. They push and push. Do not enroll your child into this school!
