Jefferson is a very awesome school, since we have a building it is way better and you can tell in the teachers and the students that it really makes a difference. This school has a very good rate for bullying because the students are taught to not bully others and we have a very nice staff a lot of the students will come in to school and give staff members a great big hug. Overall this school is my favorite.

Thank goodness my child is in 8th grade this year. I am so tired of teachers having favorites, tired of my child not getting the same treatment. Hey, if you're straight A or even better, if you are a star athlete, you'd be amazed, or sickened, at how a blind eye is turned to unacceptable behavior. But watch out to all those who don't make "the A list". Your child will surely bear the brunt.

A small community school with great staff, principal, PTA, parents and students! Keep up the good work Jefferson Village! Some our teachers have been working at Jefferson for many many years and I am very happy to have had three out of four children come up through those staff members. Couldn't be happier!

I really like all the teachers. They are very nice. They treat the kids very well. The gifted and Talented program are awesome! I was one of the Odyssey Of The Mind State champs , and got to compete in Baltimore. Thanks for saying Goodbye when we left. I appreciate it so much.

My original comment was made in 2003. I now have only 1 child at JVS. High School has proven to be a blessing for the older 2. That said, there is new leadership at Jefferson. Thank God. There is an atmosphere of discipline and order. The students now know that poor behavior will not be ignored. Let's hope the Interim Principal is allowed to stay.

I have two children in this school system, thank God one will be in eighth grade next year. I can't believe some of the issue's I have had to call the school over, it is disheartening to me and definately my children.

To be said in JVS's defense is that the school fosters a great sense of belonging to a caring and committed community, an increasingly rare phenonmenon in these digital/ techo/ cyber/ computerized times. The sports program has many committed coaches and parent volunteers (often the same people) who make the sports program excel year after year. And good sportmanship and character are actually taught and demonstrated, too. Does JVS have areas it could improve in? Sure. Could it use more funding, better facilities? Absolutely. But is it a bad school? This parent says a resounding no.

My concerns about JVS are many. Lack of leadership, unfriendly environment for parents to enter, no foresight from the community. The list goes on. There is a light at the end of my family's dark tunnel, however, with high school approaching in a year. Is my son prepared? I think not. We have a lot of catching up to do.

I have 2 kids in this school right now and I think this school is absoulutly horrible. My child who was in fifth grade when we moved here said he repeated fourth grade.

I currently have three children attend the Jefferson Village school. I truly believe that this small rural school could become an outstanding school. However, the current leadership or lack there of is what is holding this school back. I have lost my faith that the schools leadership team can do the job. In every area they shooting for the status quo. Parent concerns fall on deaf ears.

I have 3 children in this school. In the past 18 months all three have been assaulted by fellow students. One was a 'special needs' student so we made allowances for behavior. However, we were disappointed with the 'consequences' meted out by the school, to the offenders. As a note, I have been assured by the school, that my children are not a problem and that their own behavior has not brought on the abuse.
