Jefferson Elementary is home to approximately 290 students from kindergarten through to 5th grade. It has a rich tradition of academic excellence and a sense of school spirit that touches students, staff, parents, and the community. Jefferson teachers and staff are dedicated to ensuring the success of each and every student, to cultivating a passion for learning, and to providing each student with the opportunity to excel both as an individual and as part of a team.
The school’s dedicated group of teachers and support staff are committed to providing all students with a safe, stimulating, child-centered learning environment. Through partnerships with their families, the school strives to prepare students to become productive members of an ever-changing society. Jefferson Elementary students are exposed to quality educational experiences that ensure they reach their maximum potential as lifelong learners. These family and community partnerships extend beyond the school day to include after school opportunities through our Lighted Schoolhouse, tutoring and enrichment programs.
Jefferson students are also proud members of the "Jefferson Jaguar Promise Keepers," a program intended to promote a positive climate and culture at the school. Each week, one student from each classroom is chosen by his or her peers and teacher to be recognized as "Promise Keeper of the Week." These are students who have demonstrated our core values of being ‘CARING, HONEST, RESPECTFUL and RESPONSIBLE’ at all times and in all places as we pledge to be in our Jefferson Jaguar Promise.
Jefferson Elementary encourages parents to get involved and take an active role in the school and their children's education. The school’s parent-teacher organization provides strong support for enrichment activities and events at the school, greatly benefitting all of our students.
