Jeffers Hill Elementary School Reviews

2 reviews
I have been truly impressed by the quality of the teachers at Jeffers Hill. I have had 2 children in JHES for the past 5 yrs and we have been pleased with every single teacher they have had. I sat in on classes again this year and observed the teachers making great use of class time, engaging the students, and providing opportunities for both independent work and guided instruction. The principals at JHES create a very positive atomosphere for both teachers and students. And finally, the involvement and contribution of parents through the PTA is top notch. Even though it's a smaller Elementary school, JHES offers outstanding enrichment activities, both during the school day and in after school programing. The diversity of the student body has also been an unexpected plus. Truly a gem of a school.

I find myself disappointed in the instruction I have seen in the classroom. Too much teacher talk. Too little student engagement.
