Jefferson is a vibrant community school located in the heart of the Uptown area of Minneapolis. Jefferson is a school where children are nurtured and encouraged, where creativity and kindness are cherished, and kids are held accountable and mentored to find their gifts and paths to success. Involvement by our families and our surrounding community greatly contribute to our learning environment.
