My son has been at Magill for 4 years now. He is in the 3rd grade this year. Although school has only been about 5 or 6 weeks now, I'm really happy with his teacher. She is on top if things and very responsive to my sons needs and my questions. Communication is KEY with today's curriculum requirements! However, last school year was a NIGHTMARE!!! His teacher was very nice as a person, BUT she did NOT help my son excel! She was very unorganized and non responsive to my concerns. Getting a report card and seeing a failing grade when I didn't know he was struggling is UNACCEPTABLE!!! I had to call administration and request a meeting. A teacher is everything to a student and I hold Magill at fault. The administration hates the principal and a lot of parents don't care for her either. Ms. Collins does not have a good reputation. She has not affected me at all or my son. Also, the teachers raise their voices too much at the students, even in front of the parents. Especially on car pool line! Just my opinion. Some teachers should not be teachers And some are meant to be teachers. But raising voices should not be allowed except under extreme circumstances.

My kids have gone to this school for four years. The staff are friendly and firm with the kids, without being too strict. The teachers are experienced with many years of teaching. Test scores aren't their first priority. They believe in teaching respect, social order, and treating others kindly. Many kids here are learning English as their second language and so there isn't as much parental involvement in homework, which may translate into lower test scores as well. Overall the kids are positive about their experience and have made lots of great friends.

Teachers are very good , less of a strong p t a than hoped Teachers care. Test scores may not reflect best of students. Overall good school. I think better than an "5" more like 7 or 8! Front staff nice. Sadly some major staff turn over, but new staff seem nice and willing to go extra mile to help kids. My. Child has been there k,1 and now 2 no , overall we are very pleased. Parent portal and staff communication is good too.

This is an excellent school. I can't understand how the rating is only a 6 out of 10. I recently moved from out of state and had to stay with a family member while I was in search for a home. I was a little disappointed when I saw that the zoned school was a 6. We moved from an area where the school was a 9 out of 10. I didn't want my children's education to suffer. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. The teachers here are excellent. Constantly pushing the children to learn more. My second grader loves his teacher. My other child is in Kindergarten and his teacher gives individualized homework based on the child which is great. Her goal is to get every child to at least the standard but if they can do more why not push them to the next level. The office staff is so friendly. Students are well behaved. I mean, what more can you ask for. A safe and friendly environment that provides the type of education that I've seen at higher rated schools. Magill has made an excellent first impression on the school system that I've seen down here in GA.

Both of grandchildren have attended Magill since they started public school. The oldest is finishing the 4th grade and the youngest is finishing the 2nd grade. They both are in the Focus program. We are thrilled with the all of the teachers they've had! Ms. McIlvaine and Ms. Jennings and they are both top notch! The Focus teachers are great as well! We will be moving out of state over the summer but I want to be sure to say thanks for the great experiences they've both had at Magill!

My children have attended Magill for four years and every year have had excellent teachers. This year Magill got a new principal and assistant principal. Ms. Collins and Ms. Kana have really provided an improved atmosphere to the shool.

I love this school! My son has attended Magill since 1st grade and is now in the 4th, he loves this school as well. Every teacher he has had has been exceptional, caring, educated and positive. I only hope for that to continue his remainder time at Magill. Although the previous principal was not as effective with the parents I do hope the changes made will only be better for the school and community.

This was my sons first year at Magill. I found the school to be excellent in meeting his special needs as an autistic child. I thank Mrs. Rudolph and her team for working hard with him. I saw many positive changes in him that I never saw before. This was also the first year that he loved school. Again, thanks Magill.

My child has been at Magill since kindergaten. What once was a school of excellence has gone down hill due to overcrowded classrooms and teachers stretched so thin they don't have time for one on one with students. The rules change daily, students are confused and stressed. Their only focus is test scores and not the individual needs of students. Parental concerns often go unaddressed for weeks. The admin staff is too busy to get to know students and parents on a personal level.

I am a room mom and it has been a great experience for my 3 children. The education they recieve is great. My kids love the extra curricualr activities that many elementary schools just don not offer.

My daughter has attended Magill for four years. We have seen many changes occur in this time. Some of these changes have been for the good and some not so good. I feel that Magill has always been a bit too large to really have a complete handle with children at this age. With the opening of Rosebud I thought the relief would be good but we only lost 400 students so I see the number of students increasing back quickly and the need for trailers becoming a need in the next year or two again. We have experienced greatness in teaching and laziness and no concern which I believe you will find in every profession. This year we got lucky and our daughters teacher is wonderful. The PTA is great and there are always events to keep the parents and children involved which is a plus!!!

My daughter is in the 3rd grade at magill and is doing great. The teachers are great, parents are very involved and this is a plus for the school, school is very organised and safety is a must for this school. My daughter did exceptionally well on the crtc so magill must be doing things right. This is the school to be in.

My son was in Kindergarten this past year at Magill and I loved his teacher. However, I was unhappy that in the spring he had a substitute for about 7 weeks while his regular teacher recovered from surgery. I don't know the circumstances surrounding this, but I have been involved in other schools and it's my experience that the school normally hires a qualified educator if the regular teacher is going to be out for an extended period of time. That's really my only complaint.

The school cram packs there agendas so tight ..that if your child needs help in an area ..they believe they should be put into a 'special'group for help.The teachers don't have time for 1 on 1 help.

I have only my own elementary education with which to compare Magill. Magill has a strong PTA which helps the teachers and educatin. As with any school you will find good teachers and the 'not-so-good' teachers. We have had both. I wish I could name them here. Also, as with any school parents encounter 'political' problems with creative teachers and curriculum issues. Many teachers who want to teach outside the box need approval before proceeding (this limits the spectrum of creativity). The staff is wonderful and the atmosphere is great. Safety is a priority at this school. Counselors are constantly visiting classrooms to discuss age-appropriate issues and hold 'small groups' to help students with things from organizational skills to family changes. Magill has decreased in size this year, and with a new school opening next fall, I believe Magill will finally become an appropriately-sized school.

This was my child's last year at Magill and by far her best. She had the most wonderful teachers and has learned things that will help her throughout her school years. The staff was wonderful!

I've been very impressed with the organizational efforts of Magill Elementary. I find that teachers and staff members are responsive and caring. It is very easy to communicate with staff by daily emails; concerning the academic development of my children. My only concern is that the children have spelling words that are based on the most used sight words in the English language. As a parent, I'd like to see my child challenged with better vocabulary and spelling words; which would increase their knowledge and speech abilities. Perhaps the use of good ole fashion spelling bees in combination with healthy team competition and class oriented rewards could help spark their brain plugs?

I have two children at this school and the experience has been wonderful! Sure, the community is growing, but it creates a more diverse atmosphere for the kids to grow socially as well as intellectually. Wonderful caring teachers here!

The school doesn't have the strongest principal leadership that it could. The school has a very high enrollment and sometimes that creates problems. The clientelle of the school is changing rapidly. The teachers are great and work very hard at providing a wonderful atmosphere for the children to learn in. The county provides plenty of books for the kids.

I think Magill is overcrowded. I do not think being the second largest elementary school in Gwinnett is somthing to be proud of. My children's education is very important to me but so is a safe enviornment. The school is just too big.
