Open Quote I have gone to Jefferson for 7 years now and it has the best teachers and all of the students are nice. I'm in the 8th grade and I know all of the 7th graders and most of the 6th graders. We are a small school so the teachers really get to know the students. When you and in 6th grade you get to go to valley fair at the end of the year the 7th grader's also get to go to valley fair Not only do the & graders get to got to valley fair but you get to got to a camp called camp wiji for four days.The 8th graders get to go to the black hills wich i am really looking foward to. jefferson also has a girls softball team that the 6th 7th and 8th graders can join.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
