Read the negative responses, then you will get an accurate view of this school, they are quick to judge. I am very disappointed with this school.

My two older girls have been attending this school since I moved to Henry County in 2012 and I've had so many problems with this school since October 2013. All 3 of my daughters bruise very easily and the councilors at this school think that every bruise they see on a child, it has to be reported to Dfcs. Seriously? Ever since 2013, that school has had me arrested twice and claim I "beat" my kids. I've also had a Dfcs case open on me since 2013. I'm sick and tired of this school and the BOE won't even allow me to get a transfer request to LGE. I've had enough of UGE and now can't wait until next year so I can make sure my kids will not be attending the next school year.

My kids were always challenged to do their best. I had 3 kids all attend this school. The staff is always willing to do whatever it takes to help them meet those challenges. Love that the school raises the "Bar" to a higher level and expects that the kids can and will reach those levels. Always looking for ways to improve. Love, Love, Love LOVe the staff and Principal!!! They go out of their way to make everyone feel welcomed.

My daughter has excelled each year because of the student centered atmosphere at UGE! She knows she is safe and loved!

I absolutely love being a part of the family at UGE. Not only is the staff a big family, but we love our UGE students and parents. We have great support from them and the community. I have two children who also attend UGE. They are extremely happy there as well. Leadership is outstanding!

This school is not a good school for people of color.The long car riders line is a joke. This school is real is a hot mess. Do not let people fool you that this is a good school. That is a code they use. Beware of this school! I was very disappointed in this school the way they treat kids.

Unity Grove is an AMAZING school. I read the last posts, before you parents disagree, why don't you look at the REAL problem...it has NOTHING to do with the teachers but, everything to do with the GPS(Georgia Preformance Standards) We have amazing teachers that work extremely hard. It is not the fault of the teachers but of the fault of taking the fun out of teaching. Every teacher at Unity Grove LOVES each and every child as if they were their own. Do you really think paper work is fun?? Before it was "teach the way the child learns" Now it is "whatever, if they don't get it, you need to move on" post this standard..that standard...do this, do that" Teacher's are under so much stress, it is impossible at times to keep up. We feel like robots. So, instead of harshly degrading our amazing staff, why don't you look "outside the box" There is NOT one staff member that does not love our children! We try and try hard, as for a staff member being rude...please tell your story, there is always two sides to every story then there is the truth.

This is our first year at UGE and I have not been impressed at all. In fact, I feel quite deceived. At open house the staff was nice and courteous, but how that changed since the first day of school. Teachers and administrators are rude and do very little to rectify any situation. School is over-crowded and student to teacher ratio is ridiculous. We have other schools in the same city that have very low enrollment. This rezoning was one of the decisions made by the BOE that I will never understand.

My children have been going there for 3 years now.. They have been struggling they go from one subject to another before the first one is mastered, or even understood. The teachers are rude and so is the office staff. The staff and the parents act as though they above you. I can not wait until my children can go to an accepting school. The staff and parents make it hard to get involved and volunteer to help. I'm very dissatisfied.

My grandaughter has been at this school for two years and they have taught her so much. She scored in the 99 percent in the nation on her test scores and is doing fantastic. We couldn't be more pleased.

Thank God for rezoning. My daughter attended Unity Grove her Kindergarten and 1st grade year before she was rezoned to New Hope. As an involved parent it is very difficult to deal with rude/nasty teachers and office staff. There was not enough diversity in the school during the time my daughter was there and it really showed. I would like to think it has changed but from what I hear there seems to be a lot of prejudice in that school and it is something I don't want my daughter to be apart of. On a happy note, New Hope rocks!!!!

Unity Grove is the best school that I have ever been a part of. The staff is excellent and the leadership of our administration is outstanding! Most parents are supportative and appreciative. Also, the majority of our students enjoy learning and make being a teacher an enjoyable job. Thanks, Unity Grove for an awesome 5 years.

I thoroughly enjoyed substituting for Unity Grove Elementary school. The teachers were all nice and helpful. The students were well behaved and seemed well educated. I look forward to teaching there again.

The kids don't want to go to school & the parents don't want to deal with it. My child has been able to keep up an 'A' average, but it's all his own doing. He has been given no support or recognition for his hard work. Two more months and we're outta here.
