I go to jefferson right now and everything here is amazing except the people at the school. The teachers here are excellent though the science program is terrible. The math and LA program make up for that miss though as both classes have amazing teachers and if you are in the gifted program you get the very best of teachers and you are challenged in a good way. I myself am in the gifted program and it is the very best out of all of the gifted programs I have seen, for example I am in 8th grade and we are on high school geometry. I will say though if you are thinking of moving to naperville, move to the area around kennedy junior high because that is a much better school and hosts the PI+ program which is a level up from the gifted program.

I am a current student and the school is amazing. The teachers are nice and I feel safe. We learn about everything and we have sooooo many opportunities to participate. Such as Yearbook club, Photography club, Patriot press and stuff like that. Our school has may excellent spirts we can participate in. It is Amazing!
Great school! Great teachers! Good Diversity. But the test scores aren't always the best which is more the kids at the school than the teachers.
