My son has attended Ocee for 4 yrs. The support and guidance he has received from the counselors and teachers overall has been exceptional. My family remained living in the Johns Creek/Alpharetta area mainly because of the excellence in the school systems. I am extremely satisfied with my decision to enroll him in Ocee Elementary for his entire elementary experience.

I went to this school since 2009 and let me tell ya this school has been the best experience of my life. The 6 years I went to this school were AMAZING. The staff and principal were great . They have a excellent PTA . The PTA do everything to just help kids learn and have fun at the same time. K-2 goes to field trips to museums. 3 grade goes to dahlonega Gold Mine. 4 grade goes to the Georgia Aquarium. 5 grade grade goes to Rock Eagle. So as you could see Ocee Elementary is just the right school for your kids.

A great diverse school with high academic standards. Very community driven and an active PTA. We came to Ocee from a private school and are very impressed with the school, the community and its programs.

The principal Debbie Pernice should not be leading an elementary school. The teachers are excellent. The principal expressed that children with disabilities should be medicated instead of additional supervision. This school really needs to move her or help her realize its time to retire.

Our first year at Ocee was great. It was a great learning environment and his teacher was amazing. Communication was also great between his teacher and I. I would certainly recommend this school to everyone.

Considering transferring to this school. Our son with a learning disability expressed much anxiety his first week. He suffered some fear entering a larger classroom. In the counselors office, I was called to help and was surprised when the principal along with two assistances entered the small 8x9 room with my son,me and the counselor. I mistakingly made the mistake leaving the room upon her request and came back in to find two adults straddling my son and holding his mouth shut. The poor leadership in the school was evident when we noticed the counselors responsibilities end quickly. The school head needs additional training as to handling ALL children. Typical lazy suggestion " medicate him" as quote ". His previous school expressed that lights ,noise and confined areas create stress. Our pediatrician instantly reminded her about is condition. Leader is expected to exhibit comfort/ solutions . My son was expelled for one week. Upon returning to the school he was ignored by the principal that I felt showed complete lack of professionalism. Many of the staff understand school foundation and guidance,Thank you. The principal should stop parading at her sons restaurant a tad

The programs, activities and parental involvment seem very good so far. I had lunch with my child there and sat with the rest of the kids which was really neat. However, they don't monitor what the kids eat like they did back in my day. One little boy ate his ice cream bar and left everything else; that's all he ate without any word from a monitor. Only ding I have against them at all.

Sept 2006 -my daughter is in her first year @Ocee,we moved from Ct. She loves 2nd grade. The teacher uses all positive reinforcement,teaches the children how to self monitor ,and is giving my daughter problem solving skills. The curriculum uses creative life events to teach certain principles. She loved the Fall Community project!

Ocee is a great school with terrific parent participation, which is a cornerstone for a great education. This school is in it's fifth year, with the start up Principle left to build up another N. Fulton County school. He did a great job getting Ocee off the ground and we will miss him. The current principle is doing a good job as well. You can't get much better than Ocee when it comes to public schools in GA.

We are absolutely thrilled with the education and development that our two children receive at Ocee Elementary School. We have two children in the school and our oldest has been at Ocee since it opened five years ago. We think the school is fantastic because of the high test scores, solid curriculum, caring and effective teachers, competent administration, and very high level of community involvement. There is a tremendous amount of support and volunteer time provided by the parents in the community. Our kids and their friends love going to Ocee as the school provides a very positive environment for learning.

Ocee E.S. is a wonderful school. The leadership of Mr. Anderson since it opened has been first rate. Quality of teachers is high. The school scores consistently in the 90 percentaile in standardized tests. The kids have a sense of pride a ownership in the school. Parents are actively involved and if there is anything lacking that Fulton County cannot provide, the PTA rallies to help provide with volunteers and fund raising. While blessed with resources, the school assists those less fortunate by giving back to the community with charitable activities (clothing, book, food drives, giving tree, etc..
