Jefferson Elementary School

​ ​

Welcome to Jefferson Elementary
Home of the Jaguars!
A Geary County USD 475 School


Jefferson Elementary, a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, welcomes our families. Our mission is dedicated to the nourishment of the minds of all learners by engaging, encouraging, and empowering them to grow into future leaders. 

As a staff we provide students with meaningful lessons using technology, collaboration, and project based learning that involve critical thinking and problem solving. 

We believe that all of our students' achievement must be the focus of all we do so we truly get to know our students and give them what they need.

We pride ourselves working with our families so they realize it is a partnership in order to help their children flourish in the real world of work.  Many activities are provided throughout the year to support them with their child's education and emotional needs when a parent is deployed.

Our PTO and Site Council invites you to get involved to make Jefferson Elementary the best school for your child.  We value your feedback and believe in open communication.

Thank you for visiting our site and learning about the Jefferson Jaguars.  Please call with any questions you may have in order for us to serve you.
