We have had a wonderful experience at Jefferson School...We moved here in January 2010 when my son was in kindergarten. We had the most amazing kindergarten teacher and got her for my daughter too. I have seen the school be very proactive about bullying and this year they have installed a security system which keeps all doors locked throughout the school day. Very nice school but i would suggest that parents stay involved...ask the teacher if you can come in and help out. For me our children's success in elementary school starts at home.

Very poor leadership and supervision outside of the classroom. Moved my child to another school after 2 years. Very disastrous introduction to school for my family.

Out of the three years my son attended Jefferson school it is time to get out. I was concerned for the safety of not only my son but for the safety all the children that attend Jefferson.After many meetings with the teacher and principal during my sons second grade year of what I had seen myself . They all agreed what was going on was unexceptable however it became clear they do not care enough to make any changes. How sad!

Poor administration/parent communication, lack of adequate supervision during recesses and lunch, and a real problem with bullying.
