Medock has excellent teachers, parents, support staff and a fantastic learning environment for our kids. With a new after-school art program along w/ art, music, P.E and recess -they are creating well rounded kids. Also, the BEST Discovery teacher in the county works here!

Medlock is a small school with a big heart! It serves a very diverse community with compassion and understanding. At Medlock you are not just a student, parent or teacher ... you are family. Everyone knows your name!

The motto is where everyone knows your name and it's true. It's a tight knit school with active parents. Biggest bonus is it's multi ethnic my child gets exposed to many religions and races. All the children blending in and having fun being the young ones they are meant to be. I love this school, the teachers, the parents and all the talented unique group of kids that make this school so special and great.

This is my daughter's first year at Medlock and the look on her face when she comes home so far has been the best for me.

Our daughter is halfway through her second year at Medlock and we are very happy with the school. The principal is responsive and involved and I love the individual attention and recognition that the students receive. Art, P.E and music are all part of the curriculum and the teachers are great. Decatur/Dekalb's best kept secret in public schooling!

Our son is thriving after our his first year at Medlock, we are really confident that we made the right choice moving to this neighborhood. We love the diversity and the small community feel. His kindergarten teachers were extremely talented and dedicated--it was clear they loved coming to school as much as my son. We were especially encouraged by the individual attention he received for his love of reading. First grade just started and we are looking forward to another great year!

This is one of the few gems around.I have two kids at this school.They have done great! The wonderful teachers that are here seem to really care about their students! My wife and I actually attended this school when it went to seventh grade. The new principle is also doing a great job.I was initially apprehensive when the old principle retired. She was also great! Its been a wonderful experience going through it with my kids. Keep up the good work! Butch Godard

Medlock is a heart of this little neighborhood/Decatur. This is our first year, but we're already in love with this school. A great school, teachers are very well trained.

A jewel in Decatur. Medlock is a wonderful little school with tremendous parent involvment. I have both my daughters there and have served as co-president of the PTA. I couldn't have asked for more support from a great group of loving faculty, staff and parents.

My child has attended this school for the past four years.We love it because of it's size (small)and because of the neighborhood involvement in the school.The teachers are great and we have a wonderful new principal.I think one of it's special qualities is that it is a multicultural school and a neighborhood school. The parents are very involved at the school and the PTA works hard to fund special programs like an accelerated math program and a wireless network for the school.

I had the most terrible year ever at this school. I was at the school 3 or 4 times a week with problems. I had to go to the Board of Education 4 times during the school year. Hopefully I can get transfers for my children for the upcoming year.

My autistic child attends a Special Education class. She has shown great progress since her enrollment. The teachers are wonderful. Parent involved is encouraged in every way possible.
