We have been educating young people in northwest Corvallis since 1960. Currently we serve 340 students with 45 certified and classified staff members.
Jefferson provides a solid educational foundation for students in Kindergarten – 5th grade. Our students regularly achieve at high levels on the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) with more than 85% of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders either meeting or achieving the standard on state reading and math tests. Jefferson boasts a strong music program that includes the Jaguar Choir and Jag Band. Students regularly participate in wellness activities including regular physical education and planting and harvesting in our Jefferson Garden.
Jefferson Elementary School is unique in the district because we are the proud home to the elementary Life Skills program. Life Skills classrooms are designed for students with a variety of developmental disabilities who need a highly structured environment. Instruction is focused on academics at the student’s level and a curriculum that prepares students for independent living including personal safety. Life Skills students are a part of general education classrooms as well as the Life Skills classrooms. We all learn and play together.
We are a proud family of Jaguars—we are the Jefferson Prowl!
