Thomas Jefferson Elementary School Reviews
The school in general is very, very nice as well as the teachers that work there. However, there is need for improvement with the office staff.
Excellent School, excellent teachers. I have two children going to Thomas Jefferson. This will be our 6th year (K-1 to 5th). Ignore other comments, and see for yourself. PTC is awesome, and has great events! The school has smart boards and many other pluses!
My child has been going to Thomas Jefferson for 2 years and I'm VERY happy with the level of teachers here. Friends are jealous when they find out that I'm in the TJ district. My child loves going to school every day!
I have had many problems with this school, so much so that I took my child out and put him into Cirby, we love it.
