I have worked at several W.F. schools and Jefferson is my choice for best elementary school. This is the only school where the staff never discuss students at lunch. I never heard a derogatory word about any child. I have seen extreme caring for kids. Teachers maintain a positive learning environment in their classrooms. The administration is supportive of teachers, kids, and parents. His high standards cause everyone to want to do their best. Discipline is handled in school and between the school and parents unlike other schools that send troubled children to alternative school. I would choose this school for my children if they were of school age.
Both of my girls attend Jefferson Elementary. Not only are my daughters pushed academically, but they feel loved by their teachers. As a teacher myself, I know that some schools neglect to teach the whole child. Jefferson teachers might be found at their students' sporting events, recitals, etc. just to support the positive choices their students make outside of school. The leadership from the administration, the wonderful PTA, and the relationship among students of all grade levels gives Jefferson Elementary the feel of a private school. If you are looking for a school that will challenge your child academically as well as mold your child to be a productive citizen, Jefferson is the school for your family!
