Great. The counselors and teachers helped my child integrate into a new school and feel part of the TJ Paws.

Fantastic school overall. Well structured. Excellent teachers. Unbelieveable amount of parent care and involvement in this school. Parents of students place very high value on education and help out a lot with classroom activities. I have been impressed since day one as to the quality of education at this school. I attended a very good school system as a kid and this school system in Falls Church City is far superior.

Thomas Jefferson is an amazing place. The teachers are dedicated, the administration is responsive and the atmosphere is friendly and nurturing. Everyone form the librarian to the PE teachers to the bus driver seems to genuinely care about the kids. I am blown away by the parent involvement not only in classroom activities but also in programs like Outdoor Classroom. My son is very happy here! And ultimately that's the most important thing.

I have a 2nd grader and a 4th grader at Thomas Jefferson and I am very happy with the quality of instruction. Each of the teachers that my children have had have been attentive to their individual needs. I'm very happy with this school. The parental involvement is amazing - if you don't respond quickly you'll miss out on field trips or other opportunities to volunteer in the classroom because there are usually so many other people vying for those spots.

Teachers are excellent and it appears that the school focuses on continued staff development. Also, in addition to quality, there is quantity of teachers and support staff. Excellent support for special needs and individualized instruction. Could not be happier with the school.

I agree with the second parent, good school, nothing great. Many good teachers, some mediocre ones. Music program is wonderful, Mrs. Harbison is terrific. It also has an after-school program operating at the school...which, helps working parents, but the quality is less than average, and that dragged the total star rating down.
