This review is specifically in regards to the fundraisers offered by this school... I am all for children fundraising, but recently had the misfortune to purchase an item from a child at this school.. I have never in my life purchased a piece of luggage only to find out that it's PLASTIC and I paid $40!!!! When I mentioned this to the child's mother, I was told that she mentioned it to the school and they said oh well call the company... what great people are teaching our children?!? (by the way, this was sarcasm)

Euharlee Elem. school is the most dedicated school I have ever experianced. I have got all three of my children here and really love the teachers and the admin staff. If you are looking for a great school for your children come take a look around. They are willing to give parents a tour of their school. Parent involvement could be a little better but other than that a really great school!!!!!

My children hated this school. They are of mixed race and were harrassed by the counslor without me ever knowing there was any issues, who opened a case with DFACS with false accusations. My children would come home upset because they would be asked questions like, "what color are your mommy's friends?" I was completely humiliated, embarressed, and furious at the things that these people twisted around and to make me look like a bad mother and tried to ruin my family! I am a single struggling mom and my kids are the most important thing in my life that keeps me going. I started the new school year homeschooling my children and then moving out of the county to sign them up with Pitner Elementary.. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! The teachers work with the parents, and they are so involved with their students. They are excited about school now! Will never forget what i went through with Euharlee. Absolute worst. Went to the principal and she did nothing but apologized for the school staff.

School has been over since CRCTs were finished. The principal has been invisible, he did not attend county events that the school was in or events held at the school. Staff is dedicated and need more support.

Euharlee is a wonderful school with very dedicated staff. The Art teacher offers art club, we have two choirs, stackers and science Olympiad. The county needs to support the schools more (including raises for staff) and increase the school day so there is more instructional time for the teachers to teach. We looked at three schools before choosing Euharlee and we feel we have a great team working for our daughter.

Euharlee Elementary School is a wonderful school. The principal, Melinda Moe, is an excellent leader and takes pride in her school. The teachers and staff make every effort to provide each student with the best education possible. The Gateway class and teacher, Mrs. Gore is the best! I am proud to say that both of my sons will be going to Euharlee next year. The Computer, Art, Music, and PE teachers are the best in all of Georgia! Great job and thanks for taking such great care of my sons! The PTO could use more parental support but overall does a good job.
