This is my second year at the school and I am pleased with the teachers, staff and principal. My child is not only thriving academically, but socially as well. She loves attending school on a daily basis. The principal really cares about the children. Every week she has birthday lunches to celebrate the kids birthdays and half birthdays throughout the year. The kids look forward to their special lunch with the principal. The staff is always welcoming and helpful. The school is always immaculate. I look forward to another child attending next year and know that my children are in very capable hands.

I agree with the other parents, its not a school that accommodates special needs. Im talking simple stuff like dealing with ADD or children who need support groups for certain things like dealing with divorce. The principal is nice enough but she is sort of like Ms. Frizzle and Im not sure she has a real grasp on reality. We had the child study meet with us and what a joke, they didnt even interview my child or know who she was. The meeting was poorly organized and with no real resolution. Teachers seem ok though.

The principal is a kook - she is so phony. She pretends to care about kids, but she only cares about raising money. Some of her staff is incompetent and she knows.

The steps and process for special needs children needs to be evaluated. The transition process for the child is awful. They threw the child right into the system and the child is the one that suffers. When I spoke to the special needs teacher she didn't even pay attention to me. She didn't even know anything about my child. It would have been better if she had a file on my child. The way I was introduced made me wonder how disorganized is this classroom.

Jefferson school does not welcome kids with special needs.The teachers seem to avoid the effort they need to put for the kids needing extra help.The principal's actions and leadership needs to improve.

We are very pleased with the teaching staff. They really seem to care about the students. The parents support the school in all activities -sports,academics,fundraisers,etc. The only negative is questionable leadership from the Principal. Although she seems to care for all the children, her actions and leadership could improve.

Jefferson School is not the place to be for children with special needs. The current adminstrator is a fine person and very open and willing to accomodate, however the staff that is on hand has a long way to go before being able to handle the needs of students with special needs or in need of in-class- support.

Jefferson School has maintained its excellence through many changes of administrators....The current administration and teachers always have the child's best interest in mind at all times.....There is a fair consistency in behavioral expectations for all children. the academics are constantly under scrutiny for improvement, and collaborative efforts between parents, and all staff is obvious. The tolerance for divsersity creates wondeful preparation for life. Its a warm welcoming atmosphere, where respect is accepted. children are always learning the right way to behave, and are spotted or caught doing the right thing. Children will learn alongside of children with all abilities and practice their toleration for all people. Positive self esteem is the key, and 'EVERY STUDENT IS AN HONORED STUDENT IS OUR MOTTO'.
