Jefferson Elementary School5

My son has been attending Jefferson since he entered kindergarten. He has enjoyed most of his classes and teachers. He loves greeting all the different staff members, most of whom he knows and is known by. He has had problems with bullying, past and present. The teachers, principal, and other staff have been very helpful in fixing that. Especially the principal and his teachers. The principal is amazing and incredibly kind. She tries to make time for any parent or guardian that comes in with questions and concerns. She cares about the students that the school. Most of the teachers are fantastic, and I say most since I haven't meet all of them yet. They want their students to succeed at school. They are a little overwhelmed in some of the classes, one of the joys of being a Title 1 school, but they do their best for their students. While the school is not perfect, and no school ever is, the faculty does their best with what they have to see to the success and happiness of the students.
My son has attended Jefferson since kindergarten. He is now in 5th grade. Ever since the new principal took over three years ago my son has been subjected to bullying and nothing ever happens. His P.E teacher has even seen it happen and told him to "walk it off". What a joke this school is. Don't send your children here!
My daughter is in Kindergarten at Jefferson. The teacher is overwhelmed. She doesnt adjust her teaching to meet individual needs. My daughter is bored because the teacher is going at the pace of some of the slower children. Parent concerns are ignored.
I have both of my children attendnig Jefferson, The have great caring teachers and they enjoy their friends, They both are learning great things and the teachers are helping them extend their knowldge in math and reading.
Jefferson Elementary serves students from around the world. The staff works hard to make every child feel welcome and successful. The small groupings have shown students academic growth at each grade level. This is a grat community school that supports all students.
This school's strength is in it's diversity. There are students from many different countries and cultures. The teachers and principal work hard to embrace the different cultures and create a very supportive, accepting atmosphere.
Jefferson Elementary is filled with alot of student diversity. The staff is dedicated and hard working. They are faced with more challenges then an avarage school and work extra hard to help ALL students become sucessful.
