This school is a disappointment. I walked in and got beat by 3 kids in front of the principle and they did nothing about it. One was angel Christopher escamilla

I have been disappointed as well with the principal of Jefferson as well as the first grade teachers.

I think Jefferson Elementary is a wonderful school. The teachers, staff, and principal are caring and have always gone out of their way to make my family feel welcome.

My son attends Jefferson and this has been a very disappointing year. He is being bullied by class mates and speaking with the principal has not lead to any action being taken. Each week there is an incident. He also has ADHA and is often ostracized and isolated and the staff does not seem to care.

I agree that the information isn't updated in a timely fashion. The teacher that my son had was outstanding and truly cared about her students. She went over and beyond on many occassions and cared about the development of each student. As a whole the school has poor communication skills and is inconsistent with the information sent home with the children.

The 2006-2007 school year was a very dissapointing one for my 1st and 3rd graders at Thomas Jefferson Elementary. This was the second school year for their brand new building. The school is beautiful, extremely clean and the playgrounds are secure. However, the behavior of some of the teachers and aides are unacceptable. The website is never up to date. The information that comes home with the students are inconsistant, for example:my 1st grader will bring home a general communication that my 3rd grader will never bring home and vice versa. Or a friend of mine will call me asking about a info her children brought home, but my children never received. All the teachers and staff have computers and access to email however, there is stagnation in them following up with you. My children were bored and unchallanged often during this school year.
