This school has the worst reputation for bullying! Staff encourages this behavior, and literally looks the other way when bullying occurs!! They also cater to ONLY the 'wealthy' in Watertown, and if you are NOT wealthy, they will find ways to 'push your children' right out of the school, as mine were, because we were NOT the 'elite wealthy' they were looking for, AND my children did not bully others. Guess we just didn't 'fit it' to their criteria!!

I have had four girls go through Jefferson and feel that the teachers, administrators, and atmosphere have given my girls a strong base. The teachers have strived to develop each girls' own unique personality and have helped them become competent young women. Thanks Jefferson!! Breitag family - 2007

Want to improve this school's profile?

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.
