This school is the BEST school in Gwinnett County and in my opinion in all of GA! The teachers are amazing and the the parents involvement is the best I have ever seen. Mr, Willis, the principal, is is absolutely fantastic with the kids. They all do so much for our kids and treats them as though they are all one big family. The kids here are all eager to learn and help each other out. Fort Daniels sincerely cares about their students and does everything within their power to help them succeed. We are so blessed to be part of this community with such a wonderful school.

After much debate and hopes of putting my children in a private school, it was not in our plan for several reasons. As a parent, we want the absolute best for our children! I am so thankful we were able to buy a house in this school district for the purpose of Fort Daniel! It is good to see so much involvement, and still have a conservative public school. I happen to be an incredibly busy parent, and it's unfortunate that I am unable to attend all the school functions. However, I know my children are in wonderful hands of all the amazing support staff, teachers, and other parents which are able to partake! It's an answered prayer that I will continue to be grateful for:)

We have really loved this school. The teachers and staff seem genuinely interested in teaching our children, and also making them better people. Every function that we have attended has been great. Our daughter absolutely loves it here, and is shocked at how much better it is than her last school (Rosebud Elementary in Loganville). The kids are great from what we have seen, with no concerns about violence or bullying (unlike Rosebud).

This school is the best elementary school in Gwinnett. I know this because my other kids have been in other elementary schools and this one is more personable and has very good teachers. The principal is always interacting with the children and you see him at EVERY function talking to everyone. They keep you informed about all the activities and material going on in the school. LOVE THIS SCHOOL!

To the parent worrried about security from the trailers, not to worry my children were exposed to trailers and after awhile I know they were in good hands. It was the teachers and the admins presence during transition that ease my worry on visits. Just a superior school!!!!!!!!!!!

I love this school! Ever since Mr. Willis (principal) has taken over, it has been a great school to be at. The kids love him and parents too. He is a kid at heart but also very responsible and gets the job done. I've had 2 kids go through this school and 2 more that go there now and I would recommend it. The teachers are great and I do have one son that gets extra help and those ladies are amazing!

My child started Fort Daniel late in the year coming from a private school where she struggled. Her teacher and reading specialist were amazing they made the transition for all of us as smooth as possible. I have another child who will be starting kindergarten in the fall we are so blessed to live in such a wonderful school district . The school only has approx. 630 students that is awesome for a public school our only regret is that we didn't do it sooner.

This is my child's first year at Fort Daniel and we have an amazing Kindergarten teacher. The faculty/staff are all very caring and attentive to the students. Wonderful leadership is attributed to the great teachers. Fort Daniel is a community oriented school and the kids are always motivated, encouraged, and challenged.

This is the second year of attendance for my daughter at Fort Daniel. Overall, we have been very pleased with the level of involvement from both teachers, administration, and parents. There is a sign in the cafeteria that says you are only as good as your volunteers. That is certainly true here. Yes, I would like more activities for K-2 as well. Security should be better ( cameras aren't a bad idea ) amongst the trailers. The school is very clean and the children take pride in their environment. We are relocating and are looking for the same kind of school as we have in Fort Daniel. It will be missed.

I have two children in this school right now. One is in 4th grade the other is in kindergarden. While one struggles and the other is needing to be changelled more. I find that both ends of the spectrum is met here with both children and like to give praise to the teachers and all of the school staff.

Fort Daniel has a high standard for academic achievement. The administration is highly involved and they care deeply for their students. Wish there was more extra curricular activities for the younger children in grades K-2. Also wish there was better security for the students that walk to and from the trailers outside.

Great school, much less crowded now with the new Duncan Creek opening this fall. Duncan's Creek is where my kids go now, but went to Ft. Daniel before. Both are great, this is a wonderful area to live in!
