Jefferson Elementary School Reviews
There are many good teachers here. A lot of the children have non English speaking parents so what is learned at school is mainly all the help they get. Alot of these kids do not get the extra boost or help they may need at home. The teachers know what they are working with and give it their all to get the concepts across to there kids all on their own. If the kid needs extra help they have after school programs to boost them along. The help is there if the child or parent takes the opportunity to utilize it. I think they go beyond and above what other shcools do. Great job teachers.
It is too bad the school is sub-par for the education. Why is that we have a beautiful rebuilt school and it is below the state and city average. Where is our tax payer money going?
