Thomas Jefferson Elementary School is a wonderful school. I have two children who have successfully completed their elementary education at TJES. We could not be happier with the teaching staff, management and implementation of the curriculum and overall daily operation of the school. My children were not only prepared for the middle school, they were ahead in the pretesting knowledge in many subjects. The leadership and parent involvement in the school helps create a nurturing and successful learning environment.

The entire staff is committed to educating our children in a fun environment. Despite the recent budget cuts, we don't see any lack of determination by the teachers to give the kids a phenomenal education experience!

I am a parent and have had three children go through this school. This school encourages parent involvement, and kids have thrived. The proof of the school's exceptional ability, is my kids scoring at or above the 90th percentile in Nationally ranked/scaled tests. Very receptive to parent vounteerism, sports involvement. Clean school, great computer accesses, professional staff. Wouldn't have my kids go anywhere else in Central Virginia. No private school nearby worth the $$.

This is a great school! We have 2 children who attend and we are quite pleased with the academics, social atmosphere and the overall feeling of warmth when we are at the school. The parent who wrote that this school in parent unfriendly clearly did not spend any time at this school or make any effort. This is a very friendly place for students and parents alike.

We found this school to be parent unfriendly. It was very mechanical and sterile. Our kids no longer attend this school.
