Absolutely wonderful school. Never saw a principal work harder for their kids!!! Great teachers and staff. Programs are all inclusive, students are excited and encouraged!! Wish we had not moved to a different school. We truly miss Foley elementary. My girls attended from K through 4th, and one from K thru some of second before moving. wish we were still there.

Foley Elementary School is one of the most beautiful schools I've seen. The building and grounds have wonderful curb appeal and are welcoming. The halls and classrooms gleam with the work of excited students and caring teachers. The buzz of learning is evident and volunteers are very well utilized and made to feel welcome. I love helping out at this school and encourage anybody who wants to give back to the community to do so as well!

WOW is one word that sums up Foley Elementary School. I am not only a teacher at Foley, but also a parent. My children are receiving the most extensive, quality education they can have. The staff are amazing and go above and beyond for the children. They truly love each and every child that walks through their classroom door. I couldn't ask for a better education for my children.

Foley Elementary is a great school. As the parent of a Kindergartener, I could not be more pleased. Foley is a big school with a small town feel. The teachers go out of their way for the kids, and they keep up to date on the newest teaching practices. The administration is always willing to do whatever they can for the children and their parents.

The dedication and caring that pours forth from each staff member at Foley Elementary is nothing short of 'unbelievable.' A true sense or Heartfelt Love and Caring is evident in every loving touch, smile and technique used in the classroom. The administrator is vey positive and supportive of all students and teachers: which is evident in his constant move toward finding the resources needed to provide the extra supports to effectively meet the challenges of an ever increasing ELL population and an aging facility.There is no better place to be! The heart of teaching is felt in every fiber!

I am the parent of a first grader at Foley Elementary and I have to say that I am more than pleased with the performance of her teachers and the individual attention she receives. It's great when your child wakes up and actually wants to go to school to be with her teacher and her friends.

I do not like the emphasis that is placed on speed reading. I have two children that attend Foley - one reads really fast, but causes careless mistakes in other subjects; the other reads slow but makes great grades in everything else. Many of the teachers do not like the DIBELS testing either but must use it. It sad that a child in second grade cannot make an 'A' if he cannot read a word a second, but has excellent comprehension.

As the parent of a child with medical problems enrolled in foley elementary school I couldn't be more proud of the care and education my child receives. Not only can I rest easy knowing she is well cared for in school with her medical problems, the teachers and staff are excellent with their teaching skills and love for the children. They work hard to make sure the kids love learning and are equal to any school any where. My child is extreamly lucky to have this quality of school here. I recommend this school to any parent of any child.

Foley Elementary is a wonderful school. The whole staff is focused on reading and work hard to get kids excited about it too.I have three children in this school and they all read above their grade level. They also look forward to going to school everyday and hate to see summer arrive. I rate this school and its staff a 10. So if you are looking to put your child in a wonderful school where the teachers enjoy teaching this is the school for you. Brandy

This is a great school. Our Kindergarden tied for first place on their reading this year in Baldwin County. We are very proud of them. The Teachers at Foley are VERY caring and go the extra mile for their students. I have two children there and I am very pleased with the way the school is handled and the academic programs. Dr. Lawrence (the Principal) is the most laid-back, enjoyable principle I have ever been around. They have great music, science and PE classes too. The PTA is building and we are really encourageing parent involvement inside the classrooms as well as around the school. Please, come join us!
