Jefferson Elementary

Thomas Jefferson Elementary School was established in 1913. It is located in the community of North Park in San Diego, deemed by Forbes Magazine as one of America's hippest neighborhoods.

Our school is proud to be the first San Diego Unified School District elementary school to be both an International Baccalaureate (IB) school and a STEAM school. 



The mission of Jefferson Elementary School is to develop internationally-minded students who, through a rigorous program of inquiry, become knowledgeable and caring citizens of the world. Located in the heart of the North Park community, Jefferson is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme World School and a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) magnet school. Only schools that follow the strict guidelines of the IB goals and values can be certified as part of that program, a prestigious honor designed to make graduates of its programs ready to take their place in the global society.
