• Mission Statement

    Committed to excellence in all that we do, Jefferson Elementary educates all PK-5th grade scholars for career and college readiness through rigorous lessons and targeted instruction.

     Vision Statement

    Jefferson Elementary develops confident and critical thinkers who are motivated to grow as life-long learners with strong academic skills and inquisitive attitudes.

    Jefferson Elementary provides an academically and behaviorally rigorous environment with a focus on literacy instruction for the children of North Houston.  We provide an intense focus on literacy skills to ensure that each of our scholars is reading on grade level by the end of second grade.  Our intensive literacy instruction then allows us to meet the individual needs of every Jefferson student in the other core content areas.

    We believe that to truly prepare each child for the rigors of middle school, high school, and college we must provide them with an engaging environment that is demanding.  At Jefferson Elementary all scholars are held accountable for class work, homework, mastery of learning objectives and behavioral expectations on a daily basis.

    Aristotle said that “Excellence is never an accident.  It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice, not chance determines your destiny.”  Scholars at Jefferson Elementary are provided with excellence and taught to have excellence in all they do.  This constant pursuit of excellence lives within a culture of respect and drives everything in our school community.
