My son, now in 4th grade, has been at Sagamore Hills since Kindergarten. Sagamore Hills has extremely dedicated teachers, outstanding extracurricular programs, a stimulating and supportive academic environment that encourages academic achievement. Students represent not only diverse racial and ethnic backrounds, but also different socioeconomic levels all which are embraced.
Sagamore Hills has exceeded my expectations for what i expected my son to learn in Kindergarten. I'm pleasantly surprised to see him academically and socially grow so fast in only a few months.
The teachers at Sagamore are thoughtful, creative, and prepared. The parents are involved and supportive. The administration aims to foster a positive, safe, and successful learning environment for all students. Together we form a comprehensive team working in the best interest of the children under our watch.
Incredible school, just the right size and very diverse with students who thrive and amazing programs.
Sagamore has a fantastic PTA. This in addition to caring teachers and parents makes this a wonderful environment for our children to learn and thrive.
A fantastic school where the teachers are happy to work and the children are encouraged to do their best. The community is diverse and parents are active. It is a wonderful community school
I have been involved at Sagamore Hills elementary for 14 years. My daughter who is now 18 was in the first lottery funded pre-k class at Sagamore. Next year I will watch as my 9 year old becomes a 5th grader and then moves on to middle school. Sagamore represents all that is important to parents of elementary age children. Teachers are well prepared, administration values input, children are happy and the community is involved.
We have an incredibly diverse group of students. All teachers, staff and parents are truly committed to making sure every child learns.
I love Sagamore Hills because of the great teachers and staff - and the fact that my children absolutely love it there.
Sagamore Hills Elementary has caring teachers, excited children and wonderful school spirit!
We have wonderful students, teachers, parents and a terrific principal who collectively make our school amazing!!!
I love Sagamore Hills for our fantastic principal, dedicated teachers, the best PTA and parents, and the diversity of our students. We all truly work together to make Sagamore Hills the best elementary school in Atlanta!
I have two children in this school and have overall been very pleased. Contrary to some of the other comments, I have found the principal to be very open. There are a lot of opportunities for children here in a lot of different areas. As with anything, there is always room to improve, but I've found that all the teachers and staff generally know all the students and take personal interest in them.
My child is doing great at school, loves her teacher who always has something going for the kids - keeps them busy with activities in Science, Math and PE is regular.Parent participation is very good.
Wonderful school! The diversity is phenomenal. In my daughters kindergarten class of 17 students, there are Asians, White, Black, Caribbean and Hispanic. Sagamore also has a great range of economic backgrounds. Lots of extracurricular activities. I strongly believe that mastering Reading skills has a direct correlation in future success in other subjects and this school has a strong reading focus. The kids go to PE everyday, or just about everyday! In this age of childhood obesity, it's good to see the kids get to expend some of their energy physically.
Sagamore has a great student body - many parents are with the CDC and Emory, many others are well educated professionals, so there is a lot of academic support and encouragement at home. The school offers solid extracurriculars and great programs such as Math Superstars and Great Books. And yet ... it is the wrong school for many children, including my academically gifted child. This is the most rigid elementary school I have ever seen with rules which are unreasonable for the youngest children (and many of the older ones). All because of a principal who believes all children are the same and there is only one way to learn - skill and drill and keep your mouth shut and follow directions. His arrogance, his unwillingness to see children as individuals make this a bad choice for any children who are not 'cookie cutter.'
Sagamore is a great school. My child is learning very fast, but tends to forget after a while. There is a need for more revision in the classroom. We try to do the same at home. The principal has also to become a bit more friendly with the kids and the parents. I am sure this will improve the quality and make Sagamore the best school in Dekalb.
