I find that orginization and communication seem to be a problem with this school. I consider myself a very involved parent, which I thought is what the schools like to see, but unfortunely I don't see that when working with the principal at this school. i find her very defensive instead of proactive. The teachers I have worked with and other school employees are wonderful but I see my child falling further and further since moving to this school district. We are considering transfering her next year to a school that focuses more on the realistic needs of the children instead of what might look good on paper.

Right now I am a senior at T.R. Proctor High School and for K-6 I went to Thomas Jefferson School. I was shown the diversity of people, and different cultures all day, every day. We learned different ways of saying hello as well as the different traditions. Right now I do volunteer work with a teacher at Jefferson and the students are taught in a very fun and positive way. I would highly recommend this school!

I believe that the Utica School District really needs to relook on were there money is going. After being told that there was no money form my child in receiving extra help with school work. This was brought to me by a letter stating that my child would not pass and to work as a team in December so when June came around he should be ready. Which in my feelings the team was the parents and not the school with the parents. After trying to work as a team with a part missing from the team the school since they had no money to help him along. After speaking with the teacher in June 2003 it was deceided that my child to be held back, this might not happen the school had the extra time and money to give him the extra help he needed.
