Jeffery Primary School, located at 201 Wetzel Road, was built as an elementary school in 1955 to serve Shaler Area students and families. The school closed at the end of the 2017-18 school year ahead of the grand opening of the newly constructed Scott Primary School in the fall of 2018. Scott Primary School was built to house students in kindergarten through third-grade from the former Jeffery Primary and former Rogers Primary school enrollment districts.
