I have 3 kids at this school. It started ok with some pretty good teachers, but I have had some concerns from the beginning. Every day my kids come home talking about the movies they got to watch (usually movies we would not let them see at home), or how they were bullied and their teacher wouldn't even do anything about it. They are also surrounded by non-English speaking students and the teachers teach to them which means the curriculum is slowed down for my kids and others who do speak English. On top of that, every parent meeting at the school is in both English and Spanish. So a meeting that should only take 15-20 minutes takes 30-40. There has to be a better way to teach and include non-English speakers. And this year we have ended up with one of the worst teachers ever and we are counting down the days to the end of the school year. And hoping this will be our last year at City Park. Not impressed at all with this school or the staff. There is very little concern for the students or parents.

My kids have been there a couple of years now. At first it seemed like the best school, but now I believe it has went down hill. I heard teachers hollering at my children and the principal is just worried about ratings for the school. If the teachers don't want to teach than they shouldn't be there it's sad no one seems to care. I thk next yr my children will be at Christian heritage! They have some awesome teachers but very minimal.

This is my second review of City Park School however my last child is about to graduate 5th grade so I wanted to leave one last note. This school is AMAZING and completely underrated when compared to other schools in the area. The faculty has helped to mold my son into a responsible individual and I am blessed to have had him (and my daughter) attend City Park.

This is my daughters first year in school and she loves it and I think it is one of the best school in dalton and chatsworth. The teachers and all the staff are extremely nice and helpful.

This is the first year for my son at City Park,he's in kindergarten.Overall I think it will be a good school,but right now it's taking us some getting use to.We have had a few problems,but I think things will turn out for the best.It's nothing that I wouldn't have to go through at any other school. My son tells me alot about his art class and how much he enjoys it,so I am greatful for that.He loves to draw and loves his teacher he has for art.If we as parents have any questions or anything they are their to answer them.They also offer for you to come in and help out in the class,maybe by reading a book to the class.So they are good on parent involvement.I do believe that we will enjoy for our child to continue attending this school.

This school has teachers that are very interested in the students and the progress they are making. Dr. Little, the principal, is always willing to try new things to make City Park a top notch school. This is my second child to be at City Park and I could not be more pleased. Parents are always welcome and encouraged to be involved. And my daughters' teachers have always worked with us on anything that we requested. The building is beautiful and very spacious. I love the artwork that has been painted in various places such as the lunchroom. The school is very welcoming and loving.
