At my daughter's first preschool, we discovered she has a slight cognitive delay. She enjoys school so it was important to get her into a program where she could develop at a comfortable pace. We transferred to this school in February. Within one week of her being there, she had improved TREMENDOUSLY! The quality of the work she brings home tells me that she is engaged, and happy. Actual pictures, letters and numbers have appeared where random scribbles used to be! I am so thankful to her teachers for finding a way to unlock her learning potential while she's still young. I am excited to see her continued growth at this school. She has a lot of support from her teachers and administrators. Happy baby, happy Mommy! Thank you so much Pitner staff! We're off to a great start!

This school is awesome. Even the few problems we have don't make me feel bad about the school. I have two kids who have gone here. One who has now moved on to middle and one who is still at pitner. One gifted and one who needs extra help. The school handled both great. If they see one way is not working. They change it till they find what is working. The staff is awesome and they have never lost one of my kids. Like another school did twice. Very helpful staff as well. Over all there rating should be hire.

Pitner is an amazing school with teachers that really care the best teacher I had there was Mrs. Curti. She gave homework when she truly felt we needed it, not every night. All the teachers are wonderful though. I would truly recommend anyone to send their child to Pitner.

AWESOME School!!!! The Staff are very polite, nice, understanding and friendly. My daughter has been attending Pitner since Kindergarten and every years it gets better and better. All her teachers has been a pleasure to work with Ms. Dobbs, Mrs. Reynolds, Mrs. Baker and Mrs. Pittner has all been amazing. The ASP program is offers so many activiites so the kids don't be bored. ASP director and staff is great to work with. I was thinking about moving to Lawrenceville and my daughter cried because she didn't want to change school because of her techers.

I love my son's school. They are very attentive, educational, polite, and fun. Whenever my son misses a day of school he is very sad! He has attended favorite time academy and was never excited about his teachers and friends. However this year at PITNER he is excited everyday about school!

My daughter has been a student at Pitner for the past three years. I can tell you straight up that it's far and away one of the best schools anyone can ever wish to send their child to. I should know: I am an educator myself. The teachers are smart, involved, and enjoy teaching. The principal, Ms. Hill is absolutely phenomenal; she is very committed, organized, respectful, humble and on top of her game. I couldn't wish for a better school for my daughter than Pitner. Next year, my other daughter will start Kindergarten there. Excellent school, overall.

We are so glad we took our son out of Kennesaw Charter Science and Math Academy to attend our neighborhood school. He is only in Kindergarten but he has learned so much MORE since we enrolled him here that he did the first 2 months at KCSMA. And the cost - 4.00 for lunch, school books were almost 45.00, school uniforms for the year at least 225.00, field trips, pictures, yearbook, plus they also dollar you to death. Guess all schools do that. We have found that our neighborhood public school is just as good IF NOT BETTER that a Charter or Private school

This school acts like a private school. You must pay for everything. On hat day you must pay $1 to actually wear a hat. It cost $2 to go on a field trip to the schools own cafeteria They do not give an option for free, which is required by Federal law. Other than that and two terrible teacher, this is a pretty good school.

Mrs Hill has created an amazing school, she is wonderful. Pitner makes me feel like my child is the most emportant at Pitner. We have 3 children that have gone through Pitner since they opened the doors. Pitner is a great school, the staff loves on the kids... and works with the parents.

LISTEN PEOPLE, if you are looking for a fantastic elementary school for your children PITNER ELEMENTARY IS IT!!! Mrs. Hill is an absolutely wonderful principal and we love all of the activities and family and community gatherings that they have for the kids and their families. my child was a 2-month early preemie and he qualified for the early intervention special ed class and it was like being in a regular classroom. he is now in kindergarten and is excelling well beyond what i ever thought he would. we are going to be moving, but definitely trying to stay in the Pitner school district if we can. My other son will be starting school next fall and I can't wait to see how he excels. Love that the school is mult-cultural in every way as well. I SEE NOTHING BUT GREAT PROGRESS OUT OF MY CHILD AND I'M LOVING IT! COME TO PITNER ELEMENTARY, IT IS THE PLACE TO BE. YOU WON'T BE SORRY!! GOD AND HIS ANGELS ARE AT PITNER. LOL

We moved to Georgia from Michigan. We chose the Cobb County School district and are satisfied with the choice of school. Pitner parents and staff work together. The school has high standards of which we are pleased. There has been a tremendous academic improvement for our son. He is challenged to learn. Pitner is a great school

My daughter attends this school. They have great faculty and she loves the reading program. We heard great things about the school prior to moving here so when we began our house search we searched for properties in the Pitner district. We made the right choice!

This is such a wonderful school and just can't express that enough. When my kids started here 3 years ago they did not have and interest in learning and had weak test scores, well let me tell you, they made a whole 360. One is on his way to middle school without summer school(he passed the CRCT).My other child is making a lot of progress. I would like give Mrs. Hill and Mrs. Reynolds a two thumbs up on all that they do and all the teachers at Pitner.

This is a great school. The test scores this year showed considerable improvement (except 2nd grade). I'm not surprised because the teachers work hard and keep the kids on task. When a teacher isn't performing as expected, the administration gets involved right away to retrain or help if the teacher is struggling. My son is learning disabled and has an IEP. Once I got an outside medical diagnosis for him, they developed a plan right away. The few months of implementation was, however, not systematic. Then they reorganized the program over the summer and the next year they did an amazing turn-around. My son got the attention he needed, they had a team in place to assess his needs and he made amazing progress. Weaknesses: limited parental involvement (always the same parent volunteers); only some teachers regularly update their blogs; after-school programs, though great, are only available through ASP.

Pitner is a wonderful school. After Hurricane Katrina my family relocated to Kennesaw. Pitner welcomed my children with open arms and I am so thankful to Mrs. Noles, Mrs. Hill,faculty and staff for accepting them and treating them so kindly. My daughter enjoys art, music, computer lab, and gym class that Pitner provides. They also go on field trips, which is also a plus. Not only is Pitner a great school with caring teachers, the student population is diverse and I think this is so great. I want to give a special thanks to Mrs. Robinson, Mrs. Wilson, Mrs. Boyer, Mrs.Bott, and Mrs.Hogan(Jackson). Thankyou so much for all that you do.

My son is standing here as I am reading this asking me to write that Pitner is perfect. I have been very pleased with the school and with the education that my children have recieved. I too believe that there is a lack of parent involvement, not so much in the school but in the home. The teachers would be able to do their jobs much more efficiently if they were not constantly having to discipline the same students over and over again. I have very little to complain about and so much to be thankful for. All of the teachers that my children have had are excellent, loving, and caring. The administration has also listened to my concerns and been very caring. I give Pitner a thumbs up as far as public schools go!

Absoultely one of the best schools! The administration team, Mrs. Noles, Mrs. Hill and Mrs. Broughton are the best ever! They listen and really care about the students, teachers and parents. The teachers at Pitner are fabulous. I can't say enough about how wonderful Pitner is as a school. Keep up the hard work!

In our 2nd year here I can say Pitner is a great school with excellent principal, Mrs. Noles and great staff. I would definitely comment that Pitner can add some sport activity in daily school activities twice a week. My son is an active accelerated reader is in top record of school with straight A's. Proud Pitner Parent!!!

Pitner is a wonderfully run Elementary School. The teachers are some of the best in the industry; However, Pitner does lack in the extracurricular activity areana and yhere isn't anywhere near enough Parent involvement to assist the educators at this school.
