  • My children are JHESl Alum! We were very happy with Jeffers Hill Elementary School. I own and operate a preschool / child care center directly next door at the Jeffers Hill Neighborhood Center.
    We continue to communicate with the wonderful
    staff at Jeffers Hill! It's a good school and a nice neighborhood.

  • We Love JHES. We move to Jeffers Hill 7 years ago and love everything about the school and community. We know most of the staff and our son gets a great education.

  • Nothing really blows me away about this school. I moved my family to howard county so our children could attend a howard county school, so far i'm really not seeing the benefits.
