    "My son attended 6th grade at this school before we moved away from San Antonio. Although we LOVED his elementary school (Kuentz), we only give this school an average rating. He was in all Pre-AP classes and they seemed fine. Until we moved, I didn't know how different another middle school could be. I don't think I received one single email from anyone at Jefferson the entire year except for a few emails from his choir teacher. (He had a fabulous choir teacher who has since retired.) The teachers in our new district send out at least weekly emails and don't hesitate to email parents for any reason. So, although I didn't realize it at the time, there was a definite lack of communication with parents on the whole. My son experienced a fair amount of bullying at Jefferson. The vice principal called me several times during the year with "boys will be boys" types of explanations that didn't always sit well with me. Much of the bullying occurred in PE class when they have way too many students with too little supervision."

    "When my child started Jefferson. He was picked on daily. I went and talked with the VP, and for the most part, it was fixed for a moment.The bulling lasted from 6-8 grade. My child's last year there, my child, got seriously depressed, that she no longer wanted to go to school. We went up there and talked with the counselors. They made my child feel worse then before. We then talked with the principal, and boy! he cannot be reason with. He feels like he runs a perfect school. That his school has no bullies, only kids that are not being nice. The principal and the counselor both made us feel like our child was the villain, and not the victim. Overall, we thought that the teachers were pretty good."

    "The staff in the younger grades tends to be quite good. However, as the kids grow older, the staff is less interested and connected. And the administrative staff is does not even rate a star. The principal is never available. Multiple calls and messages will eventually be returned by the Assistant Principal. The secretaries are unfriendly and rude, both in person & on the phone. Student's freedom is nonexistant. They are told where to sit before school, at lunch and after school. There is no free time whatsoever to have even the shortest conversation about what your weekend was like. Students are do not rush to lunch are even given an In School Suspension at lunch time, wherein they sit alone at a side table. Don't even think about trying to stop at the bathroom on your way in!! Other absurd requirements include removing, or covering with band-aides, girl's earrings during PE. Gasp!! How did anyone else survive all the decades with such danger lurking right there on your head?!?! Plus, the dress code indicates no shorts, skorts or tank tops... despite the region being a desert. I believe the catholic school has LESS restrictions than this campus."

    "First of, i'm a student a Jefferson Middle School.. and before all you parents come out and start dissing my school let me just say. Jefferson has the highest TAKS/STAAR scores compared to other public schools. The reason our faculity is busy is cause we have a very large JMS family, Jefferson was only built for a couple hundred kids, and now we have about 1,500+ kids roaming the halls. Yes, our website isn't always updated but that is the least of their worries we have so many kids that the Academic Dean, Principal, Vice Princapal etc. are out on their feet every 15 minutes in the hallways making sure everyone is where they're supposed to be. However, Jefferson DOES have parent connection that sends you e-mails every time your childs grade drops below a 70, or is absent/tardy. The vice principal and princapal may come across rude to you cause some of you parents come here with dumb questions/problems that isn't their responsibility. Jefferson is a great school and is a Exemplary school. Jefferson is also one of the newest schools and like i said was only built for a few hundred kids but now has 1,500+ kids , yet we're still Exmplary.. You tell me if Jefferson is a bad school."

    "Mixed feelings about this school. We moved from out of state and I guess we were spoiled at our previous middle school. For the most part, our student enjoys his classes and teachers. However, there is a serious lack of communication between the school and the parents. There are no notifications sent home about anything and the website is never updated - not to mention very user unfriendly. The few instances in which we have had communication with the office staff / administration (with the exception of the principal), they have fallen somewhere between very cold to flat out rude - absolutely no respect for parents and thier importance to the education of their children."
