A huge disappointment! I attended Jacksonville City School from kindergarten to 12th grade. I had no issues with it growing up, it was school. However when my child started attending Kitty Stone, it was a huge let down. He was repeatedly bullied and the staff at Jacksonville City Schools don't take bullying seriously, they treat it as "kids being kids", and I would go so far as to say that the elitist attitude in the Jacksonville's school system only fuels the bullying. We moved to the Weaver school district and my child, who used to beg me not to make him go to school, actually loves school now. Bullying is taken seriously and children are allowed to focus on learning.

Kitty Stone Elementary School is certainly not the best Elementary School in this area. The leadership in administration is severly lacking. They are unorganized to say the least. The front office staff are among the rudest individuals I have ever encountered in a public educational institution. Parents are not valued as resources and are restricted from participating in the learning community. The teachers are OLD and need to retire. All you hear is be quiet and stop talking......sad to see what has happened to the educative process! Children should be excited about attending school. This school certainly has a prison like environment not conducive to the active learning process. Send your kids or grand kids to one of the Calhoun County schools that actually promote a positive learning atmosphere!

My two children have been going to Kitty Stone less than a year and their progress has been amazing. We moved from a school in another state that was said to be the "best" around but we had a lot of catching up to do to be on the level with Kitty Stone! My son has gone from reading 20 words per minute to 60 in just 4 months! I can't say enough great things about these teachers and their love for the students.

Kitty Stone is an awesome school lead by the best principal!!! He loves the kids and the school and it is obvious. The staff goes above and beyond. I feel very confident with the education that my daughter is receiving at Kitty Stone. Too bad the high school can't follow the lead of Kitty Stone Elementary!!

I think that Kitty Stone is the best school because it has a wonderful facilty and staff. The teaching is way ahead of all the other schools in the area. THere are all kinds of exxtra things to do. A wonderful band program. With a 4-6th grade singing. And a 6th grade band. There are also amazing lunches with the kindest lunch ladies. It is the best school in the whole world!!!

Advanced teaching techniques coupled with values. Caring staff and community. Known throughout the area as the premiere elementary school. Division I school that has an excellent education program aids in injecting new ideas and a steady flow of assistants bringing the student to teacher [ratio] way down.

I have had at least one child at Kitty Stone Elementary for the past 10 years. My children have been blessed with excellent teachers who genuinely care for all children enrolled. Mrs. Kay Evans is an extra special kindergarten teacher!

My son is in 1st grade at Kitty Stone Elementary. The quality of his education is top priority and I feel that Kitty Stone is a top-notch school with well educated and qualified teachers. Thumbs up for Ms. Jackson.
