JMS my review. the teachers seem overworked, overwhelmed, and disconnected. The students are out of control, bullies and bad behavior are everywhere. The social atmosphere is awful at this school. Our public school system is in shambles. A lot of the problem is in the home, I agree, but the schools need ...  Read more

2011-2012 school year. Our son started the first day of 8th grade at Jefferson M S not knowing a soul because we had just moved from out of state. We are so very pleased with our son's experience.

If more schools were patterned after Jefferson MS, we would have more students achieving and less just getting by. My son can concentrate mre on his school work and not on who is going to bully him on any given day. When the teachers expect more from their students, the students expect more from themselves. ...  Read more

I pulled my child out of this school due to lack of response from administration. I am tired of hearing Teachers complain about uninvolved parents. When parents are concerned and seek meetings with teachers and administrators, they are pushed back until it is too late. I decided to try my chances ...  Read more
