NWA Democrat-Gazette/SPENCER TIREY Kindergartners Analie Dryer (From Left) Kendall Langley, Kathryn Cooksey and Blake Harris work on making jingle bell necklace in Cristine Eubanks' class at Thomas Jefferson Elementary in Bentonville.

School demographics

Thomas Jefferson Elementary School’s 553 students live in central and north Bentonville and west Bella Vista. About 26 percent of Jefferson students qualify for free or reduced-price meals, slightly above the Bentonville School District’s rate of 24 percent. Eligibility for federally subsidized meals is a gauge of poverty in schools and districts.
