Harriet Tubman under the guise of Principal Mari Early became a GREAT institution of learning! My daughter had always been a scholar student and at Harriet Tubman for the 3rd & 4th grades she excelled even more. I absolutely take off my hat to the teachers there and their commitment to the no child left behind policy. I enrolled my daughter at KIPP WAYS Academy for the 5th grade and during the orientation process the advised the parents to not be alarmed if their public schooled scholar child doesn't excel as when at their previous school. Well needless to say the teachers at Harriet Tubman MORE than had my child ready and she's STILL an honor roll student and is actually functioning academically at a high school & college level. This is suppose to be the last year for Harriet Tubman and that saddens me deeply because I know that that is one of the if not the finest school in the Fulton County system and very much so needed in the community to educate our young.

Two of my kids went through Harriet Tubman Elementary. They have very dedicated teachers. We had a great experience, but you will have to do your part as a parent to get the most out of it.

This school is a school that I wouldn't even train my dog a. The Office staffer is A real stuck up snob. The teachers in the 5th grade quad are uneducated, unprofessional, and unhelpful. I am so glad my child is out of there. The PE teachers are a joke. there isn't any one there to give extra help to your child. This school needs a new staff of educators. No ownder GA is 48 out of 50 in ranking!

I have not had a good experience with this school faculty, from the top down. This is the second generation in my family to attend this same school, simply because we live in the area. The politics there exceeds the mission, which is the educate each child there. That is their obligation. We are seeking a transfer for our kids this time, we refuse to allow them to fall thru the cracks of the Fulton County School System.

This school use to be a good school with caring teachers and administrators. I sent my kids there. My grandchildren go now and I've found it to be very political and not a good learning place. I have submitted a request for them to be moved. In the interim, they are being tutored.

My brother went to this school many years ago and I have always like this school. Some of the staff is still there from when my borther went to the school and that says a great deal. I now send my son to this school and is very pleased overall with this school. It starts with the head of the school and Mr. Middleton is doing a great job. Thanks for making it comfortable for my children and I to attend this school. Parents let's support our community school. The children are our future.

I thought harriet tubman was an excellent school. My daughter came from a Clayton County School. She was so far behind when she transfered to Tubman that the teacher thought she would have to be retained. Fortunatly her teacher(Mrs. Ealy) worked with her and sent extra work home to get her back on track and she was not retained. They have excellent teachers at Harriet Tubman. I would really recommend this school to others.

The school is clean and seems to be very safe. The secretary usually has a pleasant greeting and smile. The teachers really expect a lot from the students and want them to do their best. The negative things about it is the low parent involvement, low social activities and the reading program is boring. You will have to practice with them lots of extra reading and writing at home. The reading program in the early grades is not really conventional and my 1st grader just was not interested. If you are considering it, get involved in the school.

Excellent teachers! A Georgia school of Excellence and a Title I School of Distinction. The academic programs goes beyond what is reqired by the state and county. Students have have music, art, and PE weekly. 4th through 5th graders have a choice between general music, band, and orchrestra. They can also join the chorus. 4th through 5th grade basketball team that plays the teachers at the end of the year. Clubs include: Beta Club, Student Council, Glitter Girls dance group, Art Club, and Cheerleaders. The only negative thing I can say about the school is that they have a high student transition rate and the parent involvement is low. The school is excelling regardless of parent involvement and student transition rate.
