Who We Are
Friends of Jefferson Elementary is a non-profit organization that consists of Jefferson parents and community members who are dedicated to supporting our local school and its students through volunteerism, fundraising, and community outreach. We believe Jefferson Elementary should reflect the diverse, vibrant, and innovative character that defines the heart of North Park.
in a thriving neighborhood where we celebrate all that is "local": local food, local business, local artists, and sustainable local development. Yet one of our greatest local assets, Jefferson Elementary School, is being overlooked by many North Park residents. The dedicated school principal and staff at Jefferson have made great progress in the past few years - Jefferson is offering the certified IB curriculum, and recent renovations have made the campus one of the most beautiful in the city. Although there are many ways to support Jefferson, the most important thing we can do is to send our kids there.
walkable public school offers endless opportunities for parents, children, and community members to communicate, play, and work together. We envision a Jefferson Elementary that is one of the hubs of our community. Help us make sure that Jefferson Elementary is among the reasons North Park is one of San Diego's most beloved neighborhoods!
