    "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."

    "Jefferson Elementary School is an excellent school. The Principal, Teachers and Staff genuinely care about each individual student. The curriculum is designed to teach children reading, writing, and math as well as how to be good citizens of the world. Students are taught with the use of computers and up-to-date teaching techniques. Children are encouraged to be proud of themselves for their culture and ethnicity and to have respect for all cultures. Children are given positive, special attention when they have trouble with certain lessons until they master concepts confidently. I have met Jefferson graduates who have successfully gone on to higher education and now are accomplished adults with families of their own and good jobs. I recommend Jefferson Elementary to parents who want to see their children excel in school."

    "This is a great school. I live outside of this school zone and opt to bring my two children here. The principal, staff and parents are great and do a lot more with the kids than just teaching them basics or how to pass a test. I truely know that my children are cared for each and every day. Other reviews on this site are several years old when there was a different principal. This school has improved so much since he has started being the principal."

    "This is the worse school my kids had ever been...Teacher and principal they havo no authority over the kids kids they just do whatever they want. They always complaint about everything which means that they havo no way how to handle difficult situations with kids also I don't like the fact that they give kids homework in spanish..I am spanic and I came to this country very young..And I learn english the good way or the bad way..And I think everybody should learn english no matter what..No homework should be given in spanish at all that will confuse the kids and they wont make no efforts to learn english....Jefferson school is worse school ever..."
