My daughter is in her second year at Jefferson. She went for Pre K and is now in Kindergarten. Her teacher last year was fantastic. This year her teacher is just as awesome. The only issues we have had are with other students, the front office lady, and the PE teacher. The front office lady has been downright hateful to my five year old multiple times. So much so that I felt it necessary to contact the principal. The PE teacher is just not really a kid person. She's not so friendly to adults either, actually. The problems we have had with the other students have definitely caused some stress. There are several boys in my daughter's kindergarten class who bully her and other girls. They call names, kick, etc. I'm aware that kids don't always make the best choices but I feel like it happens a lot. We have also had issues with boys kissing her and other inappropriate things. The schoolThe school has a fairly wide range of income levels, races, and social classes. Some children don't speak english well. There is a new principal this year who seems to be very "no nonsense". She is doing great so far. Overall we like the school. But they definitely have some areas that need improvement.
We have only experience good teachers. The principal is amazing. My daughter has learned so much and the structure has helped her behavior too. Teachers have open communication and seem to actually LOVE their jobs. I wouldn't want my daughter anywhere else!
We love this school so much! The principal is wonderful. Teacher turnover rate is low, parent involvement is high and the programs offered are great!
