We were blown away by the personal tour given by principal Morga. They focus on bringing STEAM skills to bear on international problems. Happy to have both our boys there next year.
Our three boys attend Jefferson and we're happy with their academic progress. We love that they attend a wonderful neighborhood school within walking distance. The teachers and staff are nurturing; they really care about the students and families. Our kids had the same teachers as they advanced and it has given us the opportunity to really get to know them. It's a wonderful little community with a great principal and office staff. Take a tour and see what the school has to offer in its IB and STEAM curriculum as well as the environment your child will be learning in. We don't think you will be disappointed.
Our daughter is in her second year at Jefferson and our son will start Kindergarten there in the fall. We couldn't be happier with the education our daughter has received, both in and out of the classroom. We're impressed with the IB and STEAM curriculum and the way it is incorporated into the classroom from Kindergarten on up - and in the "extras" they receive like the gardening, art and Spanish classes. Not only is our child learning important concepts about reading, math, science and social studies; she is also learning how to form a community with kids from different backgrounds and how to respect and learn from one another. The teachers and parents we've met are kind and excited for the kids and the school. The North Park community support has also been outstanding, including fundraisers at local NP businesses. Sending our children to Jefferson has been a great way to meet and get to know other families in North Park. Jefferson is a great school. We're glad we decided to take a tour and see what it's all about before looking outside our neighborhood.
We have two children who began at Jefferson and are currently in 2nd and 3rd grade. All of the teachers here are very engaged with the kids. The STEAM and IB Programs are two programs that have been implemented extremely well and all of the teachers are dedicated to providing a diverse and well rounded education. We couldn't be happier with the hard work from the staff and the leadership and dedication from Mr. Morga, the principal. Additionally, we are part of the parents group Friends of Jefferson and we love all of the community support from our local business and the engagement and dedication of many of the parents to help make this school one of the best in San Diego. Send your kids local and don't read too deeply into test scores showing up here. Go to the school, meet the staff, meet other parents and get involved. I assure you that this will be a great place for your children.
