I am NOT pleased with the new female principal. She is rood, un profetional, and does not know how to interact with children. Excpetiallly hyper active children....move over lady let someone else try. Anyone would be better at it then! Mrs.cluck on the other band is amazing
Thomas Jefferson school is exceptional because the staff takes a "whole child" approach to teaching. The teachers go above and beyond to accommodate children of various needs. All children are valued and a positive reinforcement approach is applied from the moment your child walks in the door. As a parent I know my children will be treated with love and respect. What more can a parent ask for?
Most of the teachers work hard to teach our children. Some of the teachers let the bully's, bully and blame the victims. Not a fan of the new princial. She SEEMS under qualified and overwhelmed. Also very unprofessional and self righteous.
So far I have only been pleased with the academic programs. As a parent I have always wanted to be involved with my childs school. This school does not make you feel welcome at all! It makes me feel sad to be shut out of programs, the classroom and the school itself. I am glad to hear of the principals retirement. When schools, families, and the community work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more.
The teachers and staff work hard to get the kids on their way into a bright future. Keep up the great work.
The teachers and support staff really know and care about their children. They are very available to you for concerns big and small. I especially like that they maintain discipline with personal accountability. They class sizes are small, and it's a great neighboorhood school with a sense of community.
Thomas Jefferson is a first rate school with high academic standards and emphasis on reading skills.
It's a good school but there could be more vigilance about bullying and language used by children
My kids went to Thomas Jefferson from 1st grade through 5th grade. It is the most wonderful school with the best principlal, Mr. O'Hare. He is strong and has great authority and at the same time wears a great smile and loves the kids and looks out for them all of the time. The teachers are wonderful too. I found that 99% of the kids that go there are good kids with strong friendships that carry through for most of their lives. Thank goodness for Thomas Jefferson!
