Jefferson Elementary School 3

Posted September 02, 2015

Fifth graders are particularly held to low and mediocre standards. Boys in particular are left behind by average and uninspired teachers who have been there too long to be properly engaged yet use their experience as a shield in order to approach issues with a "I know all about THAT" attitude. Alas, it was a complete lost year for our boy. He started out, for example, loving math and liking school. By the end of the year, he hated math, was bored out of his mind, and had lost significant self confidence due to the schools intolerance towards boys. The school is at best, average. It's motto isn't a "race to the top" but, rather, "let's mosey to the middle; it's probably good enough and we won't hurt anybody."

We have two boys at Jefferson. We've had great teachers. The principal is fantastic.

Jefferson is the best school for this community, and in an excellent location. Another nearby school has more demand, but we found the attitudes there a bit snobby and the emphasis on standardized testing a distraction to child development. Jefferson has great teachers, good class sizes, and tremendous parent involvement.

Jefferson has high-quality academics, and the teachers are exceptionally good. Class sizes are a bit big, although they were reduced somewhat this year after additional funding was added. Funds for extracurricular activities seem fairly limited. Parent involvement is exceptional, and the school is very safe and friendly. I feel that my children are receiving a very good education at Jefferson.
