    "My twin girls are in kindergarten at Jefferson and they love everything about it! So do my wife and I. Their teacher is so fantastic that my kids spend much of their free time drawing pictures of her and writing her notes. Mr. Morga, the principal, is accessible, open-minded, energetic, and beloved by kids, parents, and faculty alike. More parents in the Jefferson zone are wising up and sending their kids here--this year saw the highest kindergarten enrollment and the highest percentage of local families enrolled in decades. This is due in part to the promotional efforts of a group of dedicated parents and community members; but it seemed inevitable that Jefferson would get swept up in the North Park renaissance. We enrolled our kids here instead of choicing into other schools as many of our neighbors had, hoping Jefferson would provide not only a fine education for our kids (it's an IB school and a STEAM magnet), but also a greater connection between our family and our community. I could go on for days about the enrichment opportunities, library, afterschool programs, etc., but suffice it to say that so far the Jefferson experience has exceeded our hopes and expectations!"

    "This school has been wonderful. My daughter is in Transitional Kindergarten right now and was also here at Jefferson for preschool last year. The Principal, Mr Morga is a very genuine and good spirited man. The staff is all pretty great. We have been so lucky to have Mrs. Rosiles for preschool last year and Mrs. Dow for TK this year. There are always fun field trips and activities going on for the kids. My daughter loves it here. Unfortunately we are moving to the North County this summer and I will have to change her school for next year. But if we ever move back, I will put my daughter right back in Jefferson. Their after-school care program on campus (Primetime) has also been awesome."

    "Jefferson Elementary School in San Diego, deserves to be recognized for the amazing way it has transformed over the past few years. When you first arrive at the school site, people are welcoming and they smile making you feel comfortable right away. The school has gone from old and drab to new and bright with all the physical changes that have been made on the outside. On the inside, the students are all engaged in their activities. The leadership has been exemplary with Principal Morga, who is the force behind all these amazing changes. He is a kind, caring, approachable human being that is truly dedicated to his job. There's always some type of activity or event going on that includes the neighboring community. I had worked as a school secretary in a nearby school that closed, those students then transferred to Jefferson Elementary, which pleased me greatly to know they would be attending a quality school very similar to the previous one they attended in our neighborhood."

    "My son is now in 5th grade, and I am extremely thankful that he was able to attend Jefferson since kindergarten. Together we've raised a wonderful kid. He's above grade-level academically, he's challenged, he's stimulated, he's taught to think and, most importantly, he LOVES being at school. School feels like home and family- the staff and parents make this school feel like a community. Extra curricular activities are plentiful and help kids feel connected to school. There is a sense of playfulness and fun on campus. PTA is active, and the principal is dynamic. His teachers have been excellent."
