The staff at Allgood is amazing! They provide the best learning experience possible and the safety and needs of the children are always their first priority.

My son attends this school. I receive no information from the school or teachers about any activities, field trips, academics, ect. I have called many, many times for answers to important questions. One question being,"My son is being bullied. What is being done?" My son's teacher treats parents very badly. She is rude, refuses to return phone calls, or arrange meetings to iron out problems that arise with my son. One problem being: I specifically arranged with the school for my sister to pick up my son as a car rider, so I could to go to a very important appointment. She put my son on the bus, disregarding my arrangements. This left my son to almost be unable to return home at the end of the day. Luckily my sister made it in time to the bus stop. The staff is rude and doesn't forward messages to appropriate persons. Every time I have been in front office, I have felt as if I were walking into a prison. Recently, I found out this school nationally rated as poor and is on the priority list, meaning it's in desperate need of attention. It fails academically and socially. My family is definitely moving away from this district to get away from this terrible school.

My daughter is in 1st grade and has been going to Allgood since she started school. To me it is one of the cleanest schools in Paulding. You can tell their staff there takes great pride in their job. The front office has always been very helpful and friendly. The school is always having dances, movie nights, or fun science/math nights. I feel the teachers my daughter has had so far ( Mrs. Miller-Bristow and Mrs. Eaton) care about learning and their students. Some of the parents I know are unhappy with the curriculum, but to me she is learning what any other school in Paulding is learning. My daughter will be staying at Allgood thru fifth grade. I look forward to the new teachers she will get and the friends she will make.

I have had 2 children complete their elementary school years at Allgood. The staff has been exceptional. The principal from Mr. Otott to Mrs. Anderson Have been exceptional. IF and When there were situations they were handled very professional and swiftly. My children were taught very well and were able to adapt to there middles schools without any problem. Thank you Allgood Staff!

My son is in 3rd grade and has attended Allgood for 4 years now and my daughter is in 2nd grade and has attended Allgood for 3 years now. I have been very pleased with the teachers my children have had and with the interaction between the teachers and the parents, as well as between the teachers and students. In my opinion, my children will finish their elementary years at Allgood Elementary. Thanks so much for all you do.

My daughter attends Kindergarten at Allgood this year. I am not at all pleased with the school. Communication with the teacher is poor and the office staff is ignorant. Every morning is a struggle to get my child to go. She has begged to change school and unfortunatly there is no school choice this year in Paulding County or my daughter would not attend Allgood.

My daughter attended Kindergarten this past year at Allgood. I was very pleased with the quality of the education she received. Her teacher was excellent in her ability to make learning fun. My daughter enjoyed going to school and grew socially as well as academically. The principal and assistant principal of Allgood are wonderful!

Allgood is the best that Paulding County has to offer.....and at times that isn't saying an awful lot. They are so far behind in recognizing the importance of foreign language and the arts. The school does the best it can with what it has. Your school can only be as good as the leadership it has in the superintendent. And Paulding County is left wanting for proper leadership. It fails to provide the nuances in eduaction that every child needs and deserves. Allgod cannot be faulted, it is the school system that needs improving.

I had 2 daughters that went to Allgood. They are both in Middle School now. I could not have asked for a better group of teachers. Both of my children earned A's and B's throughout their elementary years. I attribute thises grades to the exceptional teachings of the teachers they were blessed with. I think that Allgood is the cleanest school I have visited in the county. The custodians there take huge pride in their jobs. Probably because they are treated with a lot of respect. Mr. Otott, Mrs. Goodhead, Mrs. J. Bryant, Mrs. Owen, and Mrs. McCormick was the greatest...period.
