Excellence in Education
The JES PTA builds bridges between homes and schools, integrating the efforts of parents with those of principals and teachers. When you get involved in PTA, the child that benefits the most is your own.

Jefferson Elementary School provides a warm, nurturing learning environment for Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade students. Jefferson is located in a cozy community setting; right next door to the Cammack Village Police Department.
Our staff teaches from a curriculum based on the latest education models in combination with the basic "three Rs". Students have access to K-2 enrichment, a gifted program (3rd - 5th), classroom computers, SmartBoards, a spacious media center with a mini-lab and many books, full time music and art programs, speech and resource assistance and a licensed professional counselor. Jefferson also offers the STARS Tutoring Program for K-2 reading and a computer-based Accelerated Reading program.
In 2020, Jefferson Elementary was named a National Blue Ribbon School. The prestigious National Blue Ribbon Schools award affirms the hard work of educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging and engaging content. Jefferson is a neighborhood school within the Little Rock Public School District built in 1949. Home of the Patriots, Jefferson Elementary has strong ties to its community and is committed both to the growth and happiness of students. Because of these commitments, staff and students alike arrive at Jefferson eager to teach and to learn.
Jefferson Elementary has been the most wonderful experience for my family. There is an incredible community of parents and teachers who work together to provide the kids with the very best educational and enrichment experiences. There is no other school public or private that I would wish for my children to attend. Jefferson really is the best!
'When our son started kindergarten last year, we had just moved into the neighborhood and weren't sure what to expect. The Jefferson community made a huge point to make us feel welcome. Our student loved his teacher and made some amazing friends! He was incredibly excited to come back to school this year; we couldn't ask for more.'
We have had a great experience at Jefferson. Our teachers and the staff have been very helpful and informative. There is always an activity to get involved in as parents which helps us feel like we are setting our student up for success!
After touring Jefferson as well as some of the private schools in the area, the choice to send our children to JES was an easy one. We are so grateful to have a wonderful, neighborhood school with caring teachers and staff. We have experienced individualized instruction, tailored to suit our son's needs. He has grown and learned so much already in his time at Jefferson.
