I have 3 kids in this school (K, 1st, and 3rd), and we have been a part of this fantastic school since 2011. All of my kids love this school and so do I! The teachers are amazing; I haven't had any problems or complaints about any of them. The principal is a wonderful woman who truly loves the kids and her job. I cant imagine a better place for my kids to learn and grow!

My oldest daughter is finishing up 5th grade, and my youngest is in 3rd. We have been a part of Jeffries since 2008. I'm a highly educated person and wouldn't hesitate to move my children if they weren't being educated properly. I can honestly say that we have had the BEST experience with teachers and staff at this school. Jeffries has a little bit of everything; black kids, white kids, rich kids, poor kids, you name it. The only complaint I could possibly offer is that it's a bit overcrowded, but SPS is building a new elementary in the area, and I suspect that will thin Jeffries out a bit. Also, this school was recently remodeled with a secure entrance and brand new gymnasium that doubles as a FEMA storm shelter. Coupled with a strong PTA, excellent principal, Watch Dog Dads, and tons of other volunteers, Jeffries is a truly great place. If you're deciding between homes and looking for the best education for your child, look no more.

I love Jeffries school so much!!!! Our oldest has been there for two years going on three. Our second child is about to go next year. We love being apart of this great school. Dr. Cooper, teacher, secretary, school nurse. I mean you name it. They all have such a heart for the kids. We almost bought a home but it took us outside this school district and we backed out because we love this school and teachers so much. We couldn't ask for a better school. Thank you so much to all Jeffries workings for making it such an amazing place to be at and for our children to have a safe environment to go to school everyday:)

We were told that it is ok for the teachers grandmother to volunteer in the class room some times... but not us as parents in the class room!

This is a horrible school. The lack of communication about anything is appalling. We recently received news from the Jeffries staff that our daughter was given a flu vaccine without parent permission. After a 3 hr goose chase and many phone calls, we were told that our daughter must not have actually received the vaccine at the Jefferies health fair on 10/14/13 because they don't have a permission slip for her. When asked for the original permission slip that I specifically wrote Don't vaccinate on, it cannot be found at Jeffries school now. Now we are left wondering if the reason our child was sick for close to 2 weeks in Oct was because she received the vaccine at her doctor s office and then another dose days later at her school. We do not know for a 100% because one person says one thing and another says something different. None of them have documentation to prove the truth. After all of this, we cannot get her transferred to a new school, we are told we have to have a sit down with Dr. cooper, the principal.

My son is ASD and has been going to Jeffries for 3yrs now and I can't believe how much he's improved socially as well as academically. The staff really cares about the student's and they do everything they can to make sure the kids are getting the best education possible. I credit his teacher's for his love of learning!

I love Jeffries Elementary School because they accepted the challenge of educating my son who has high functioning autism for five years.
