There are other schools out there that don't put labels on children at the start of the year and pretend all school year to fight bullying. I had to have conferences with the principal and the teacher because of the constant bullying FROM THE SAME CHILD and the teacher turning a blind eye SEVERAL TIMES. Looking back it surprises me still have this high of a rating and it just shows me that a lot of parents don't get as involved with their child's school as they should.
My son just finished Kindergarten at Thomas Jefferson, and I am absolutely delighted we are a part of the TJ family. My son is a magnet student and everyday we drive by 3 other schools to attend TJ. Everyone from the administrators, teachers and support staff are absolutely wonderful. Mrs. Turner always has a smile and you are made to feel you can approach her at anytime with concerns or general conversation. Best of all the kids love her. I have mentioned it is an "A" rated school. Best decision ever to send my son here - no regrets!
All the teachers and staff are invested in the student's education and well being. My son will be going into 4th grade and each of his teachers each year have been kind, loving, giving, knowledgeable people. How they command the classroom and manage to instruct and maintain order like they do is a wonder to see. This school does all kinds of fun events for the kids and their families, the PTA is active and very well organized too. This school is older and smaller but its size was one of the aspects that attracted me to it when I was visiting schools for their magnet programs. This school won me over with their enthusiastic teachers who smile and are loving toward the kids. I want my child to feel safe and well cared for each day and at Thomas Jefferson, he has that.
My son goes to Thomas Jefferson as a magnet student after applying for two years straight, and he luckily was accepted. In a few words, this school is wonderful! It is older, however, the family- oriented environment and individual attention each student gets more than compensates for its age. The teachers are all very friendly, the classrooms are becoming more and more modernized, and overall I am very pleased with the quality of education my child is receiving here. The family functions are one of the many bonuses of being a part of the Thomas Jefferson family so if you like being involved with your child's school, then this is the school for you. Could not be happier! We LOVE Thomas Jefferson Elementary!
