Mr. Byrd is an inspiring principal who sets realistic expectations. His staff loves him. It is a happy place to work because of him. You can feel it in the halls. The school has won two state awards under his direction.
Jefferson teachers work hard and are well respected by administrators and parents alike. There are very few discipline problems as students respect their teachers as well. Mutual respect is the key ingredient for this school being as successful as it is.
Parents are happy with the amount of homework. Most students get a daily math sheet and a reading log to read at least 20 minutes outside of school. Other bigger projects are given out throughout the year by individual teachers.
Yes, it it instilled in the students from the administrator on down. They begin each day reciting a school pledge...I will act in such a way that I will be proud of myself and others will be proud of me too...
This is a great place to work. It is well organized and calm. Successful leadership is evident. Staff is respected. Students are well behaved and PTA is outstanding. Proud to represent the Bruins as a staff member!
The principal and teachers at Jefferson are all very caring. The PTA is highly involved and does a great job coming up with fun activities that both the students and their families can enjoy. The test scores have continued to improve year after year. We Love being a part of the Jefferson community!
Very happy to have my child in this school. I enrolled my child in the middle of last yr and couldn't be happier with the staffs welcoming of my son. My son has thrived already at this school and I'm excited to see what this yr brings. The principle really is incredible and my desire to write the review has a lot to do with him and how well the school runs as a result. I'm not sure if he has been recognized yet.. but he should!
