Jefferson is really a part of our neighborhood and our community. The teachers all get involved in community service activities and join the kids at their 'extra-curricular, non-school related' events. It's been such an awesome, safe, loving/caring place for me to have my kids at for the past 4yrs. They would make such great use of this contribution.
We are a second generation family at Jefferson school and know that it has a rich past and a bright future! Love the communication and the staff!
Jefferson Elementary creates an environment where my son can't wait to go to school. We moved to Wauwatosa knowing he woud go to the neighborhood school. We have the highest regard for the Faculty & the Principal!
I am constantly amazed at the level of parent, community, teacher, school district cooperation and encouragement. It is a system that truly cares about my children.
Jefferons Elementary embodies what a school should be - great teachers, families that contribute and a school that is an integral part of the community.
I love Jefferson because of the GREAT communication...they make it a point to inform the parents with all their moves...I especially love how my sons teacher keeps me posted on his progress. He lets me know of any issues before its too late!! Great Work Jefferson.
Teachers and administration are outstanding. Always willing to meet and discuss any issues regarding our kid's education.
The teachers and principal. The family feeling you get at school events. The communication about what is going on at Jefferson.
Jefferson Elementary School is a greate school with excellent qualified staff and amazing teachers. The principle is engaged in educating the children. The school is diverse, which gives my children the opportunity to engage with all different types of students.
It's a small neighborhood school which i much prefer. The staff is always no nice and friendly. There isn't a time when I'm dropping off my kids that I don't see happy kids or smiling staff. The staff works really hard on making sure the kids get the best education they can. Mr Siedel is amazing! He is such a hands on, kind principle. Really there for parents and staff!
Caring, insightful teachers, engaged parents and a strong curriculum.
Jefferson creates a unique environment for the students and the parents. My child loves going to school and has for the past 5 years! She even goes to summer school because she loves learning. Beyond the great teachers and staff, I must comment on the music and arts. It brings all of us joy to see the children expressing themselves through art and music. Playing instruments, singing, doing plays and creating works of art has made them well-rounded chilren. This is a special place that fosters special children.
It's a wonderful community, with involved, loving parents and teachers. The school is one of two in Wauwatosa that has early childhood education classes for children with special needs. Jefferson's principal excels at what he does, leading the school and teaching tolerance, acceptance, and kindness with humor and warmth. We could not be happier with our experiences at Jefferson. My children LOVE going to school.
Jefferson is a great school because it is its own community. Everyone knows each other by name and interacts together. It has a tight knit group of people and teachers.
Jefferson Elementary is a very family oriented school and supports the success of all students. The high parental involvement rate makes Jefferson feel like its own community. The time the principal takes to be involved in the classroom is admirable.
Jefferson Elementary School has been a blessing to our daughter who needed special help that she couldn't get through the MPS system.The teachers at Jefferson really care about our kids and go above and beyond our expectaions. Jefferson gets my 5 star vote.
Jefferson has a very attentive group of teachers.They provide alot of individual attention to students. The principal is very approachable and supportive of the faculty.
A nurturing environment for young learners, my daughter's journey has just begun and her excitement to learn has grown with each day at Jefferson elementary.
Great school all around. Excellent staff, really care about the kids. Very good for Special Needs kids.
