Graham Elm. Is an outstanding school. Mrs.Dyer is an involved and caring leader who gets personally involved with students who need help, guidance or otherwise. My oldest son had some real emotional issues when he first started at this school. He had transferred from Houston after being treated with indifference by the principal there. At Graham he was received with warmth and care. He was offered counseling and support from teachers and direct involvment from Mrs. Dyer. All the staff were very kind to us and let me know how things were going with him continually. The people in that school care a great deal for their students. They are also no nonsense when it comes to acedemics and fair discipline, which is exactly what my son needed. Two sons actually. They accept nothing but the personal best from their students and encourage them wonderfully. I recommend this school to anyone.

The principal is a very inconsistent and incompetent leader. He is weak in discipline and curriculum.

My child came to Graham to begin her second grade year. She had an awful time the year before at another school. She was afraid to go to school and it was a fight every morning. I decided to move her to Graham so that she could begin a fresh start. It was the best move I could have made. Her second grade teacher, Mrs. Estelle, was wonderful. She helped Chelsey come out of her shell and was very kind and caring. Chelsey loves school now and dont have to worry about her calling me everyday wanting to come home. Graham is an excellent school with a wonderful principal and very dedicated teachers. Good for you Graham, and thanks!

Upon moving to a new area in Talladega, I was faced with moving my son to a new school and enrolling my Kindergarden daughter. I was very hesitant but decided to enroll them at Graham. So far it has been the best decision I have made regarding thier education. I had open communication with all of the staff. My childrens teachers were very open and caring and Dr. Buck always had the time to answer any of my questions. My 2nd grader son excelled tremendously and my shy daughter came out of her shell with the help of her teacher. I was kept informed of thier progress continueously by both of the teachers. I look forward to several more great years with my children at this school. Thank you Graham!

I have two children at this school and couldn't be happier. I volunteered on almost a daily basis and was always made welcomed. I have been most impressed by the open communication between faculty and parents. I was kept up-to-date on school/class functions and the progress of my children by both teachers. I felt that I could always approach Dr. Buck with any questions, concerns or suggestions and was always treated with courtesy and respect. Graham also has an outstanding PTO, which has this year focused on the improvement of the playground. Old equipment was renovated and many new pieces of new equipment were purchased and installed. We also are participating in the Lightspan program courtesy of a grant written by Dr. Buck. This year Graham Elementary celebrates 100 years of educating the children of Talladega. While the building may be old, the school spirit remains youthful and vibrant.

Graham is an outstanding school and source of pride in the community. The faculty is experienced and caring. The PTO is very active. Grant funding has helped provide a strong arts program. Communication between school and home is super.
