Approximately 500 kindergarten–fifth grade students attend Thomas Jefferson Elementary School. Our outstanding staff and very dedicated PTO have a long history of working hand in hand to create and maintain a school environment that is data driven and student focused.

At Jefferson, we offer many opportunities for students to thrive as learners. Our diverse students have the opportunity to participate in general education, fine arts, and practical arts programming.  Our school also houses a bilingual program. 

The entire staff at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School collaborates with students and families throughout the school year.  Our work together will be an important component in ensuring that all children are equipped with the skills necessary for success as they advance through our educational system.
