My daughter went here from 1st & 2nd grade. She was bullied & the principal & teachers didn't seem to care, I even had an employee in the front office complain about everything I did. We live in another county now & the schools are so much better.

I think this school is awful I have a fifth grader who is failing all subjects and the teachers keep telling me how sweet and wonderful she is instead of helping her pass I am so unsatisfied that I am considering homeschooling so I can monitor her education on my own

My child is in 2nd grade. My child started Allatoona Elem as a Preschooler moved on to Kindergarten then First grade. Preschool was good there as well as Kindergarten and some of 1st grade but now my daughter now has many behavioral problems and possible learning disorders. It takes WAY TOO LONG to get a child tested and therefore, eligible for Special Educational Services. Currently it takes 6-8 weeks that's just the process of "Watching your child stumble through classes daily so that they can document it down on paper as evidence that your child does have problems." After that then, they take the evidence to the meeting to determine if your child should be tested further to look for any disabilities or disorders. But to speed that process up, I took my child to a private doctor to get a Psychological and have testing done on my own. Even with that my child is still struggling and nothing is being done to correct the problems that she is having and that I am having. So with that.I hope to find a Private School that can give my child the support she needs. My child has had a horrible time with being bullied she's only 8 years old.

My son is in 2nd grade at this school and has had problems all year with bullying kids. The teachers and principle do not seem to care at all, as I have called this to their attention several times. My son gets called fat on a daily basis and comes home crying. I also had a child go to kindergarten in this school a few years ago and I pulled her out after only 4 months and put her in a out of district school because of similar things...this school and its staff only care about themselves...I have NEVER had a good experience here and as soon as I can sell my home I will be moving to the Mission Rd Elem. district...they actually care about the kids.

Allatoona Elementary School cares about their children. My daughter just started there this year as a Pre-k child and she has had a terrific time, her teachers are very hands on and go out of their way to make each child feel comfortable and loved. Also within the past week, the entire school celebrated Earth Week and my lil girl rushed home to tell me about 'Mother Earth' and talked about how we must take care of her and help her..lol! We talked about recycling our paper goods, glass and making sure that we always turn off the lights when we leave the room. This school and their teachers are doing a fantastic job at nurturing their little minds and souls! This school really deserves kudos for going that extra mile!

My granddaughter was a student at Allatoona Elementary through 5th grade. She loved it and received excellent help from her teachers and the entire staff. I am a 40 year educator, and I am so pleased with her time there. Ms. Black was her teacher for 2 years (4th and 5th) and she went 'above and beyond' to help my grandchild. Kudos to all the staff and thanks from the perspective of a grandparent.

I feel that all involved with the school geniunely care for each child. There is so much pressure put on the school from the state that it does sometimes roll down to the children. Allatoona teachers do their best to remember these are children first and students second. Both being of equal importance.

Allatoona teachers are great. They go way above what is required to help each student do their best and be successful. Parent involvement is important and Allatoona has several activities during the year to highlight what is being taught and to get parents involved.

Ms. May and Ms. Carder (K) are wonderful. If all the teachers my son has are half as wonderful I will be thrilled.

My child has attended Allatoona Elem. now for 3 years. They have great teachers and wonderful award programs that honor each student several times a year. On the down side, Allatoona is a smaller community and I have noticed several times that if you or your child know someone associated with the school, disciline is nonexistent.

My daughter is in first grade in Ms.Ciomek's class.She is a wonderful teacher and has shown her caring during difficult times.The whole staff is wonderful and I am very pleased with everybody there.The most important thing is that my daughter loves her school and has always been treated with respect.
