Great school. With the exception of my daughters 3rd grade teacher who now teaches 5th grade, the teachers are WONDERFUL! My daughter LOVES going to school this year thanks to a SUPERB 4th grade teacher who makes the kids want to learn.

What has happened to the morral at our school ? Could it be the leadership or lack there of ??? Maybe our new principle should take some PR and management classes.

the school itself is not too bad. But, the whole time my son went there, the parents of the students were weird, wouldn't speak and just overall uninvolved. Coming from Alabama, its hard to go into a school where people are not friendly. Other than that and a bad 5th grade teacher, all was good!

Proud Panter Parent! I have 1 child in Panter now and 1 that will be starting in the fall of 08. We love the staff from the principle to the assistants. The music, art, PE, media center, and even Ms. Penley's (Guidance Counselor) safety, etc. sessions have left a positive impression on my child. Mr. Denise, the principle, keeps the parents up-to-date via newsletters and the entire school staff is friendly and helpful. We especially love Ms. Willingham, 2nd grade teacher. Thank you all for giving our children such a great experience!

I have one child that attends Panter. I love this school. Everyone from the Prinicipal to the staff are great. The PTA is wonderful. I think it is the parents that need to get involved though. Had a PTA meeting tonight and there were about 3 parents there. That is sad on the parents part.

I have 2 children who attend Panter & have been extremely pleased. Mr. Dennis is wonderful as is his office staff. We have been very lucky in the fact that our children have had great teachers. I would like to say that I think the PTA is doing a fine job considering each one of the board members are new this year & have no prior experience. Such a role takes time to perfect if there is such a thing. The meetings this year have been monthly (with the exception of Nov & January) which I like & is much improvement to the 4 meetings we had last school year.

I'm a Panter Parent and I have nothing bad to say about this school at all and believe me I've been looking. My child enjoys his teacher and I see progress on a daily basis with his development. I appreciate Mr. Dennis' staff always going out of their way to assist the children. However, I would like to see improvement in the PTA. The meetings are not regular and the communication needs much improvement.

We love Panter! We are a school choice family and couldn't imagine our son at any other school. Principle Dennis and his entire staff, both administrative and teaching are outstanding! This is our 4th year as proud Panter Parents. There are only 2 areas that we feel could be improved on since the rezoning that took place last school year. The first being Extracurricular Activities. The 2005-2006 school year had very few. The year(s) prior had parents night out, after school movies, dances, etc...we miss those things. Also, Parent Involvment seems to be down. We have a wonderful PTA, but the school needs the help of every parent in order to be successful. Although all the teachers at Panter are 'top of their game' Mrs. Norman was the best Kindergarten teacher. She and Ms. Ellington gave our children an incredible foundation. Hats off to you Panter-keep up the great work!

My daughter is in her second year at Panter Elementary. The front office staff is wonderful and call you by name. The school is always spotless and clean. The playground is nice and well equipped. The cafeteria staff are always friendly and the food is tasty. There has always been great communications with her teachers. We love our school!

This is my second year as a parent of a child attending this school. I had a hard time with my daughter last year wanting to come home. She cried, wouldn't get out the car, and just made every morning unbearable. The help that I got from the staff to get both of us through this was remarkable. This school year has been amazing! She is like a different person and I feel that I owe all the credit to the staff. Mrs. Kirby was her kindergarten teacher last year and she is by far on the top of my list for her teaching qualitites. It takes compassion and patience to do what they have to do everyday. I was blessed again this year with Mrs. Atcheson. I konw that she is going to be an A+ teacher as well. All the teachers are exceptional and I would have been comfortable with anyone that my child would have gotten. Great job teachers! Keep it up!

My son just started his 5th grade year at Panter Elementary. My daughter is in the 3rd grade. Our whole family loves Panter and the staff. When I walk into the school, I feel like I am back in elementary school. It reminds me of the school that I went to back in the 70's. Every one is friendly down to the janitors. The teachers are excellent. My children have been very blessed that in this public school they have had outstanding teachers who not only teach, but nurture.
