Jefferson Elementary School
Home of the Dolphins!
Jefferson Elementary is proud to provide all of our students with a nutrturing learning environment to meet the learning, academic, physical, and social-emotional needs of the whole child. Our staff works collaboratively with each other, parents, and students to provide a positive and productive learning environment . The key piece of our instructional program is a thinking, meaning-centered curriculum. Students demonstrate their learning through various activities involving higher order thinking skills and strategies. They are encouraged to explain and demonstrate their understanding of what they have learned. We have an involved and hightly supportive PTA who works hard to provide and maintain strong learning enrichment programs for our students. In addition we are in partnership with Beach Cities Health District's LiveWell Kids program to bring our students nutrition, gardening, and physical fitness enrichment programs in their weekly curricular schedules. Hands On Art and The Music Center are examples of just two key programs in place at Jefferson to tap into Visual and Performing Arts.
Jefferson students receive a high quality standards-based education. Student achievement will be accomplished with the help of teachers, instructional assistants, administration, parents, and technology. Their instruction will be goal oriented with open communication to encourage risk taking. Working together will ensure that all students receive thinking, meaning-centered curriculum and a safe and functional environment which is supportive.
