  • I went to this school from first grade through fourth. I felt that the teachers were really great. Specially Mrs. Harmount, she is nice. The lunch ladies are mean though. I got in trouble for nothing in the lunch room, and I had to go on the wall.

  • I have to say that I really like this school. I have two children that attend this school and for the most part I have to say that the teachers really do a great job! Also I think the office staff is absolutely wonderful! Any time I have had to call the school, they have been nothing but wonderful! Thanks so much!!

  • I went to Jefferson Elementary School from 1998-2003. I am now in 8th grade and my little brother is going to the school and from my observations, I don't think that my little brother is getting the FULL education that he needs. When I went to Jefferson, I was taught well, now, my brother is not being challenged enough. They are not teaching right and they are putting the "slow learners" with the children who are fast at learning, and that isn't right.
