The Mission of Jefferson Elementary…


…a progressive school community that reflects and values a diverse population and a commitment to student learning, is to engage and empower the whole child to reach his/her unique capabilities, to develop strong personal character and inspire a life-long passion for learning through high expectations, varied instructional strategies, and the collaborative efforts of students, families, community and staff.


We Believe that…
All students will master the most essential skills in reading and math in preparation for the next grade level.

All members of the Jefferson community will consistently demonstrate respectful and responsible behavior within our progressive school.

All families of Jefferson students will be consistently engaged in their child or children’s learning.


We will increase student achievement by implementing best instructional practices, interventions, enrichment activities and by working as a Professional Learning Community to meet the needs of all students.

We will create a plan using Character Counts! as a framework that develops the character of all members of the Jefferson Community with emphasis on respect, responsibility, citizenship, honesty, trustworthiness and caring.

We will develop a plan to engage Jefferson families in their child or children’s learning by exploring communication and the best practices in the spectrum of family engagement.
