The school's child-centered education with the best teachers in the area has made a tremendous difference to my kids. Both are excelling well. Graduates from this school are considered self-confident, independent learners which give them confidence to succeed in their later years in high school and ...  Read more

I love the uniqueness of The Jefferson School, the only private, independent school in Sussex County Delaware, and its hands-on approach to teaching/learning.
