Piney Chapel Elementary School 2

My child will be returning to Piney Chapel after a failed experience last year. Her kindergarten teacher just did not have the patience to deal with her "accidents", which were no more or less frequent than the other children (I've heard). The other staff were friendly, but hard to work with at times. And, this teacher just was not willing to compromise, even after several attempts to reason with her. The school is not rated well and for good reason. You won't find a good, quality education from a public school here in Limestone County. The state of Alabama is severely lacking. Not even the Principal had many suggestions of how to help us all have a more productive year, so ultimately, I pulled my child out to try again next year (this year, now). We came into Piney Chapel with the mentality of succeeding and having a great Kindergarten experience, but it just didn't happen that way for us.

I have 2 children attending this school for the first time this year. It has been a pleasant experience so far. The school staff works so well with parents and students. The teachers that my children have do so much more than teach the regular subjects. They genuinely care about the students. I would highly recommend this school!

I have one child who has attended Piney Chapel since the first grade. We have been very happy with the school and teachers. I like that it is a small school and the children feel safe and cared for by the teachers.

I have 2 children that go to Piney. I love the quality of attention, and the teacher involvement in their curriculum. Everyone in the community is great. I would recommend this school for anyone that is looking for a great place for your kids to go to school.

I have one child that goes to Piney. It is a small school but it just great for K-6 grade. The little ones don't have to watch for the bigger kids. Being a small school has it ups and downs cause we don't get the help we need to grow.
