This is an amazing school! I have two children that go here and have been a part of this school for the past 4 years. The teachers and staff are amazing and care about your children. I am so thankful to have my children go there. They work well with all types of learners and are there for the students and parents if they have special needs. I give this school a 10 out of 10!!!

My grandson has been bullied for 1 and 1/2 years He is very sensitive and his grades started slipping. He is switching to a private school where I pray he will be happier and excel. When the teacher was confronted by my grandson, she told him he shouldn't tattle. I thought all the schools where against bullying and took steps to stop it.

My son is in 4th grade and has been going to Jeffer's Pond since it opened. We love this school-the teachers are the best and so are the office ladies! The only negative about Jeffer's Pond is the parking lot. I wish they would have put more thought into the design of the parking. Very dangerous if you are dropping children off, anytime there is a school function the lot is full and you cannot get through without being inches away from all the parked vehicles!!

We have two daughters in JP and are very satisfied with the school -- the teachers and administration, the grounds (which include some great nature trails), and the district. Thank you JP!
