This school seems like a good school to go to when you first walk into the door, but if actually isn't. My child has gone through trouble with teachers, but it was not my child's fault. Jefferson Middle School is the most diverse middle school in the Olympia School District. This means that there are many different races and cultures. My child, who is Asian, was accused of kicking, hitting, punching, and verbally abusing students (in other words, swearing). My child does NOT do this. According to my child, some teachers randomly come up to him and yell at him and say "Stop Doing ......" My child would then reply "I did not do ______, I am not _______" The teacher would then reply "Stop lying!" Once, a teacher approached my child and said not kick people and acted it out. This was very rude, my child was born in America. I went in to talk to the teacher and the teacher then replied " All Asians Look Alike" I was offended of course because first of all, this was a racist statement and second, my son does not look like the student who is making trouble around the school. Even though my child has repeatedly asked to transfer to Marshall Middle School, but it is just too far.
