When I read the last review I was appalled by the lack of knowledge and negativity. The school is amazing and it is because of the leadership of Mr. Freiberger, the staff and the parents working together to benefit the entire school. Losing him is a great loss to the school and community.

If you are concerned about high stakes standardized tests scores and perceived image, this is the school for you. This school is all about image. The principal's philosophy is "my way or the highway." The parents have almost no input or voice at the school. The principal controls the PTA and LSAC. The staff at the school is even afraid to make decisions. They make sure that the get everything cleared through the principal. Most parents and teachers are afraid the speak up. It has created a very unpleasant atmosphere.

Crabapple Crossing Elementary is a 2012 Blue Ribbon School recipient. This school is a success because of the excellent leadership, the teachers and wonderful parent involvement. I could not be happier to have my children grow up through this school.

My student is thriving at CCE. Coming from a private school, I was concerned about a few things. However, I have found nothing to be concerned about. My student's self confidence is growing exponentially! Love this community!

I had 4 children that attended Crabapple in 2009/10 school year. At first we hated the school because we had just moved from southern California and they held back my first garade son. He had finished kinder in CA but he wasnt up to par for this school standards 1st grade. We met with the school and we agreed to put him back in Kinder and it was the best desision we made. We are now back in CA and and miss Crabapple sooooo much! Five stars is not enough!!

CCE is an excellent school all around. This year, there have been changes with administration. The school has a more inviting and warm feel to it. The students, parents, and community actually know the Prinicpal and Assistant Principal. They attend every event and speak with parents. This has made a huge impact on how parents and students view the school. My children love coming to school. I know that they are getting the best education possible. The teachers go beyond expectations to make students succeed.

I am a high school student about to enter college. I am very creative and intelligent, but lack motivation. At a critical development period point in my life, I was abandoned by this school, and lost a lot of my will to learn. Although I do not fully blame the school, I do wish they had reached out to help me. Instead I felt alienated. Because I was not considered the best of the best in a very competitive elementary school, my teachers didn t spend any time on trying to save me from my faults. I do not recommend this school. They are focused only on grades, not potential. For a long time in my life I felt fear and hate for school. That, I entirely blame on this primary school.

I am very pleased with the education my daughter is getting at Crabapple Crossing. She has excellent teachers, and is happy and seems to be learning all she needs for first grade. I have 2 older children who both went to Crabapple Crossing for elementary school, and they are both doing well. One is in college, and the other is in all honors classes at Milton High School. Both have been well prepared for life.

The school is reactive and not proactive. The school will only take action on a student if they are very gifted (TAG) or in danger of failing. If a student is passing their grade, regardless of whether the child is realizing his/her potential, the school with leave them alone.

CCE is a fine school. We've been here 2 years and I've volunteered extensively. I have yet to meet the principal. It strikes me as VERY odd. I've never seen her around. The front office staff does nothing to make you feel warm or welcome. The teachers are awesome and that's all that really matters anyways.

Crabapple Crossing Elementary has a fantastic administration and staff. Yes, parent involvement encouraged with fund-raiser activities (and these funds do greatly enrich learning opportunities), but also, parents are given opportunities to review new curriculum, take part in the Local School Advisory Council and then yearly, parents are asked to fill out a survey and give feedback on how the school is doing. There is genuine concern for the learner and there is passion by the staff for the subjects taught.

Both me and my daughter now going on 3rd grade at Crabapple Crossing, has been very happy with the school structured curriculum, teachers (have been excellent!) There is preasure for these children's learning curriculum, however I think that my daughter has learned a lot from all her teachers. Alot of activity involvement with parents and children. I was part of a class parent last year and the PTA runs that very well. There is a lot of parent involvement which is great for the school. I do think the school should expand and rebuild the school for a more modern and all one school like their middle school next door. I don't like that there are trailer classrooms in the front of the school.

There is alot to be said for this school. There is so much concentration on money, money and mor money. Each school is given a dollar amount for each student for the year and on top of that the school still asks for a monetry donation ie; field trips. As far as safety, there are issues that are hidden within the wood work of this building. If your child is at grade level you may be ok. If your child is below grade level your child is in trouble. Please pay attention to the new standards that are being introduced at all grade levels. It is a Ga thing.

I TOTALLY agree with the parent who wrote that 'if your child is at or below grade level then you are in trouble. I find that the administration tolerates the parents but supports the teachers no matter what. I think your child's teacher makes all the difference in the world. My child had a wonderful teacher in Kindergarten but a horrible experience in 1st grade. They put too much pressure on these kids at such an early age. The parent involvement is tremendous at Crabapple! I do feel that my child is getting an excellent education, but I wonder sometimes at what expense.
