We moved from Ohio where my children attended public school in one of the best school districts in the state. I can honestly say that the education they are receiving at Jefferson Elementary superceeds our experience in the Ohio school district. The teachers have been engaged and very caring. The academically gifted program is outstanding, and the school community is active and tight knit. The new principal has been a wonderful addition to the school, and I could not be happier with the school.
We actually chose Jefferson Elementary over our assigned school, Vienna Elementary, for three of our children. We have had experiences with all grade levels and multiple teachers/administrators; all of which we have been happy with. Great school, great teachers and a lot of parental support/involvement.
My children have the BEST teachers! They work so hard to be sure my kids are challenged, given the tools to succeed, and that they excel. I would not ask for any other teachers for my kids. I feel this way each year at Jefferson. Susan Reeve and Monica Hale ROCK teaching and are AWESOME teachers!!!
Again, students are taught effort is the key to success. If they work hard they will succeed. You must work for what you want and the teachers here help students learn the keys for succeeding through persistance and effort.
Through our guudance counselor and our staff the students at Jefferson are taught to help and serve one another. Whether it is sticking up for someone being teased of helping a classmate on his assignments in class, our kids are taught to help and serve the people around them daily.
Each day the administration and staff work together to help teach the children what it means to be honest in what you do, to make the effort for what you want, and to only expect to get what you worked for.
The teachers at Jefferson are TOP NOTCH! They truly care about their students and strive everyday to engage and work with the students to help them achieve their highest potential. They pour their hearts into their classrooms and the students benefit each day from that love.
Mrs. Hine! She is an awesome kindergarten teacher! She's patient, kind, gentle and so much more! She has made my son's kindergarten experience a positive one. She goes above & beyond the call of duty for each of her students.
This is our second year at Jefferson after transferring in from a neighboring county, and we have been nothing but impressed! The staff was helpful in our transition, and they have continued to be receptive to my questions. My daughter has loved her teachers, and I have also been pleased with the level of parent involvement. We chose Jefferson partly for the racial diversity and believe we have found a beautiful community where our daughter is learning acceptance and love of all people while continuing to receive a top-notch education. The teachers care :-)
