For the safety and health of our students, the playground is now closed before and after school. There has been an increased number of unsupervised students on the playground at these times and the faculty and staff are not available for supervision during these hours. We ask that students leave campus immediately after school unless they are participating in a school sponsored after school event. Also, as posted on signs around campus, there is to be no riding of scooters, skateboards, hoverboards or bikes while on campus. Thank you for your cooperation.

We Strive HI at Jefferson Elementary


The DOE today awarded Jefferson Elementary $25,000 for being amongst the top 5% schools to boost student reading and math proficiency at the fastest pace among all Hawaii public schools.

Scott K. Parker, Principal of Jefferson Elementary in remarks to teachers at an awards ceremony at Jefferson commented, "We don’t want to compromise equity to achieve excellence and by treating each student as an individual, and measuring each student’s growth over time, we can ensure that we not only achieve annual growth for our students but catch up growth as needed. This will result in students being at or above grade level each year and well on their way to be college, career, and life ready. We achieved this from 2010-2012 and we will not stop there."

"I want to congratulate the principals, teachers, staff, and students at these Strive HI schools for leading the charge in transforming our public education system," Governor Neil Abercrombie said at this mornings awards ceremony. "They are setting an excellent example by showing what can be achieved when everyone strives higher toward a common goal."

"We are proud to be able to financially recognize the hard work of the teachers, students and staff of these schools," Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi said. "The Strive HI awards reflect that the department is not only focused on intervention in current priority schools, but also encourages other schools across the islands to keep striving high."
