After my 2 step-daughters tragically lost their mother they fell drastically behind in their school. The following summer I transferred them to Jefferson (where my older daughter attended) and words cannot express the time, effort and love teachers and staff poured into those broken little girls. They are now both honor roll middle school students. My youngest daughter attends Jefferson now making it more than 8 years that I have had children attending there and it continues to impress me as an exceptional school with teachers and staff that truly care about their students.
Bullying is a huge problem that has not been addressed in the 4 years my children have been going to this school. The teachers shrug it off, and the bullying becomes hitting/slapping/tripping.. and we've had enough. The principal is very respectable and caring, but the staff is hardly any of that.
My child currently goes to jefferson elem overall I would have to say the school is pretty good , the teacher has been very good about keeping me informed about things that are going on in the class room.
