There is no Parent-Teacher involvement!! The principal is not polite and does not make herself available. Before you enroll your child please do a surprise visit and see whats going on in the school.

I have one child that still is enrolled at Usher-Collier Elementary and one child that formally attended the school and both have had excellent experiences. They are challenged academically, socially well rounded as well given the encouragement and support needed to succeed. The administrative staff has shown that they have a genuine interest in the student body. I couldn't have selected a better school for my children.

This is the first year that my 3 children have attened Usher. I have to say that i am really pleased with the outcome of the way the teacher are teaching my children. My children suppose to attend ga towns, but i went to the school board and requested that they attend usher. Everyone is really freindly and i would tell anyone that this is a great school. The teachers seem to be there to really teach the kids and they are not there just to collect a paycheck.

My daughter started K this year and so far the school is okay. Her teacher is very nice and she motivates the children in her class to learn. She sends home daily progress reports to let you know how your child is doing. Now on the other hand, I think that the school lacks parent involvement and the admin should address the issue.
