Our Jefferson School community is committed to the vision that all students will meet high academic and behavior standards. Our standards-based program has clear expectations for all students. It specifies skills which all students are expected to master at each grade level. The Common Core Standards are the driving force behind our instructional lessons and assessments. We also believe that learning is a process by which social interaction is shaped in the classroom. Quality instruction is provided through an integrated curriculum, where the 4 C's (Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, and Critical Thinking) are exercised. Our expectation is that all students will become lifelong learners, thinking, literate, productive, responsible, ethical, and able to compete in and contribute to a diverse society.
