Grateful to: Staff member
November 25, 2015
I am grateful for my daughter's counselor. She is always offering her support not only to the students and parents, but also by contributing with donations to the school. I would also like to recognize her ability to recognize a problem, address it and help solve it. We are very lucky to have her.

Teacher effectiveness: Effective
November 25, 2015
The teachers are very effective considering the difficulties some may face with some students. Sometimes the class size may be an issue or the language barrier.

I am unsure at the moment. I haven't been able to visit the classroom. My daughter has not been reprimanded for anything so I don't have an answer.

Personally the staff members are all extremely nice and helpful to me. The school in general though needs some improvements in security and inclusion. This year the principal has acknowledged a highly dedicated group of parents and we are planning to arouse our PTA which has been dormant for several years.

Hightower Elementary School is the best school in the Dunwoody area and provides a solid education for all of its students. The school's culture is wonderful and its diverse population of students and parents feel extremely comfortable being at the school. The principal, the assistant principal and the staff are simply, THE BEST. I have not seen a school that provides a better education.
