Very good School, it is because of the dedicated teachers and a very warm , loving,hard working principal Ms. Cranna. She knows each kid by the name. She greets the parents , she is there in the morning and the afternoon at the school gate helping the kids and ensures safety at all time. PTA here is very hardworking, tries to take advantage of every possibility to raise money for the school activities. There is a green environment strongly preached, which is obvious with the garden that has vegetables, flowering plants, fruit trees grown with the help of little volunteers- the students of Jefferson. The kids come home with a lot of enthusiasm and narrate what they did at school. There is hardly any day my little ones have had a low moment at school. There is parent involvement, parents can go volunteer in their childs clasroom by signing up at the office. There are educational field trips to various places in and around San Francisco. Even the K kids get an opportunity to go overnight camping. Fun!
I am so thankful that my husband persuade me to check out Jefferson Elementary School . They have wonderful teachers. Ms. Cranna, who is the principal is an amazing influence to the Jefferson community. Parents are helpful and friendly.Our PTA is very active and dedicated. We are very happy here and so is our daughter.
Jefferson has been a lovely community for my son, who is now entering 1st grade. We were assigned there with very little knowledge of the school and could not be more grateful for his placement. The teachers are easily the secret ingredient to making the school and community so inviting and successful. Though located right on 19th Avenue, the greenery and garden at Jefferson are beautiful--and are an amazing resource from which children can learn science. Our PTA continues to grow and focuses on raising funds for extra activities for the children. Jefferson is a gem.
Jefferson is excellent because of its' amazing staff of teachers and professionals. Every year, we are blessed by great teaching and a compassionate understanding of kids. Jefferson encourages direct parent participation and volunteerism. It is one of its' strengths. Jefferson is working toward ambitious goals in outdoor and garden education, updating its computer and tech learning capabilities, and keeping true to providing a great deal of art and supplements to science education. This is a school you will want to take a look at!
