Too many fights and bullies. The kids here are constantly on survival mode from other students which takes away from their education. My son had a rock thrown at his face because he wouldn't give a kid his lunch. I worry for his safety he will be transferred. This is where Camp Pendleton sends their ...  Read more

Jefferson used to be a good school.The arts were a big factor in attracting more kids to the school. When my first child went to Jefferson, a lot of the higher performing kids were school of choice, and choose to come to Jefferson for different programs such as music, drama, dance, etc. With the recent ...  Read more

I have a rather low opinion of Jefferson. Most of the other parents in my neighborhood have expressed concern about sending their children there. My child was getting mostly A's & B's in elementary school and was also indentified as a GATE student. After spending 6th grade at Jefferson she is a straight ...  Read more

Jefferson has below average performance across the board. Their best strategy is to put their worst behaving/performing students with their best performing students...while this may help the poor performer; it creates a drag on the excelling student. They have absolutely no GATE program. Worst ...  Read more
