Things didn't go so well the 1st week and I was worried about that but I requested a different teacher and after that everything went smoothly. She had a wonderful school year, she was in the talent show, we went to movie night, she was a star student, gifted and talented, super reader. My daughter is a talker and likes to brag and Mrs. Malmin would give her time to get in front of the class and say what she wanted to say. She had a great relationship with her. Mrs. Maxwell the 3rd/4th gd teacher received a golden apple award, she started animal science there and was also in charge of the talent show, very nice lady. They have a wonderful, friendly principal, all the teachers greet you. I couldn't have asked for a better school year. Truly sad about relocating to Houston. I definitely recommend sending your child here.

My child has loved going to school at Jefferson. The teachers are caring and have high expectations. We are moving next year and very sad to leave.

I think Jefferson is an awesome school with great teachers. They are dedicted to the students and want them to be succesful. The administration and office staff knows all the children by name and treats them all kindly regardless of economic status or behavior issues. It has been rewarding to know that my children not only received a great education at Jefferson, but were truly loved and respected by the teachers and staff as well.

Jefferson has been a great place to educate children for many years. I feel that the teacher morale is a little low and there are still some teachers there that need to improve. Change is difficult and TISD as a whole is slow to change.

Jefferson is a wonderful neighborhood school that exudes warmth and friendliness to all families. It is a racially diverse campus where children see each other as friends. It has myriad opportunities for parent involvement, and the PTO has continued to experience growth over the past 3 years. The FOCUS program provides after-school extra-curricular activities for working parents. The Science Lab and Brain Builders programs provide stimulus for budding minds, and the Special Ed teachers are great. Character Traits are given special attention, and Star Students are recognized. My husband attended school at Jefferson, so we knew our children would go there when we moved back from Austin. We strongly support neighborhood schools - and Jefferson is one of the best!

The new principal took over early last year. The school has been on a constant decline ever since. Several parents have moved their children to other schools, and even other districts. The school board recognizes that there is a problem, however 'cannot identify the cause.' This is sad because there are several extremely good teachers here. Recently some computer equipment was stolen during working hours. This raises some serious security questions.
