Recent Reviews


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · October 03, 2016
The teachers are highly trained, not only in the standard pedagogy, but also in the IB and STEAM curricula. There is a very low turnover rate and every teacher I have met has had a huge amount of affection and dedication to the school and students.

Develops character: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · October 03, 2016
These characteristics are built in to the International Baccalaureate program, and are reinforced every day in class, at assemblies, and through signs and artwork on campus.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · October 03, 2016
In the time that we have been at Jefferson, I have heard very few reports of bullying. It doesn't seem to be an issue there, which indicates to me that it is effectively dealt with.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · October 03, 2016
Principal Morga is a force of nature! He is full of positive energy and he knows how to get things done. He has a great relationship with the kids, parents, and staff.

About this school

Jefferson IB STEAM magnet school is in the heart of historic North Park, the "Hippest neighbor hood in the nation". We are in close proximity to Balboa Park, the Zoo, Museuems and many art studios in the North Park area. The school has gone through major renovations with an amzing front entrance, a beautiful school garden and many murals and sculptures to celebrate art and diversity. Jefferson is truly the "gem" of the San Diego Unified school District and the North Park community.
