We are a military family, and this school welcomed us with open arms. The teachers and staff really supported us throughout our assignment. I was in school full time and my husband deployed. My children were not only cared for, they were loved, and still are. The faculty make every attempt to keep parents involved and informed on the strength and quality of the education each child receives. This school became our home and the staff, out family. Ultimately, your child's success depends on Y.O.U. But this school is one of the best we've been involved with.

The teachers are not enough involved. My son had problems and his needs in reading were not met. I am home schooling my kids now because the problems I had .I had many meets and never seen improvement. My son attended this school for five years and was held back in kindergarten and never improved after that . He had problem k-5th and never got the help he needed. I think the teachers should be more involved . They have under educated teacher helping with the kids and some teacher have no patience at all with them . On a number of times I have seen and heard teacher from pre-k to 5th grade lose patience and scream at the kids . I am very dissatisfied with the school system I feel our kids deserve better.

In August of 2004 there were issues brought up that were on both sides of the fence. I find myself wondering where some of it was coming from and am reminded that some people are 'part of the problem' and others go in and help 'take care of problems.' Every school in this county has its share of issues. if they claim they don't then they are looking at the world through rose colored glasses. My now MS daughter spent k-5 at CCES where she thrived! She thrived because she was pushed at home, pushed by her teachers and most of all because she pushed herself. CCES has the best interest of every student at every learning level at heart and if you do not belive that then I challenge you to provide occasions where they did not work hard for your child. 'It takes a village!'

I would like to have a list of field trips at the beginning of the year so that parents can request time off to attend. We need more sport activities for elementary school kids. Soccer for instance the girls at the school don't want to play baseball or basketball all the time. We need more choices.

I have been pleased with this school. My 13yo, and 9yo have been here for 2 years now. Being in the military exposes us to alot of different styles of teaching, and I have to say that this has been an extreamly pleasant environment.

I have been apart of this county for 26 years and have seen this school go from 200-500 students. Our school has not been on the Needs improvement list, in fact this year it has made its 4th or 5th year and was labeled school of excellence. We could not have a better principal who has made every effort to support every student. So let't not put our own personal agendas on this website. We welcome anyone to visit our school and judge for themselves.

I can not believe what that one parent thought. This school is so focused on all the children, not just the accelerated. My child is in seventh grade and has been at Chatt Co his entire school career. The class sizes are small and he gets a lot of individual attention and his teachers have worked extra hard to deal with his ADD. Maybe that parent needs to travel to the surrounding counties and put his/her child in one of those schools. I think he/she would receive an eye opening experience. (Not for the better) Chattahoochee County has sooo many resources. Each classroom has at least five computers and access to class sets of laptops. Reading and Math materials are in abundance as well as everyday supplies such as pencils, crayons, scissors, gluesticks etc. I have relatives who are in Alabama schools and there is no comparison.

I personally think Chattco is a sorry excuse of a school! Alot of underpriviledged children attend Chattco and they are pushed to the side and the advanced children are treated like they are the only kids with a future! There are some teachers who have attitude problems and anger issues! For the most part the teachers are ok but the ones running the school are more interested in the advanced kids then trying to level the playing field! I don't believe the PTA works for all the children in the school, only the ones in sports, band, advanced classes, and ones with money! The children whose parents struggle everyday to pay the bills are pushed aside like they will never amount to anything! I think it should be more equal in the school! I think all kids should receive an equal education, no matter what!

Chatco is really a diamond in the rough. Compared to the other schools in the surrounding rural counties, Chatco is really the shining example. The teachers, staff, and especially principal is outstanding. All the staff genuinely cares for the students. It is really a great school. I was a teacher there for a few years and was sad when I left.

I personally think it stinks that my children are limited to one school. While the counties surrounding us have a choice. Our school is substandard and they are not very well equiped. Our children struggle to make a passing grade. Don't you wonder why in a school that small is there not enough books and other resources. The principle is paying more attention to the accelerated program (which here grandchildren are apart of) than to the children are in the middle. Fund raisers are being used to fund trips to six flags for the children in the accelerated program instead of raising funds to increase the number of books in the school. I quit the PTA because they were not discussing items that mattered instead they put on plays and sold popcorn and we still don't know what that money is being used for. Something needs to be done.
