I moved to Chatom from Mobile and am the mother of a 1st grader, 2nd grader and a junior in in high school. My children have been in public and private schools in Alabama and Fl. I feel that my move to Chatom has been the best thing to happen to my children. The values that seem to be taught on a daily basis as well as the easy access to the teachers and the principal have made it more than a wonderful experience.They have kept me as a parent very updated and they also make learning fun for the children. I have attended almost all school activities since the move and kept my children very involved. I read the previous posting and I am in awe of how this parent has come to feel this way. Kerri Ross

Upon arriving to the small town I looked forward to my kids enjoying the small town atmosphere. However, dealing with the school has become almost a full time job for me. The principal has acted unprofessional with me and my dealings with the school. I have complained about what I perceive as a negative atmosphere of the school, and trying to get daily recess started. With my dealing with the teachers, once again, I have found some to be unprofessional. The principal has done nothing to my satiation to address any problem I or my children have at the school. On the same note, the school board superintendent has acted in much of the same way ..unprofessional with my dealing with me. I have dealt with 4 other school system in my travels, Chatom Elementary school is by far the worst school I have had my children attend.
