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.
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!
