What a wonderful school! We are thrilled with the education provided, the teachers and leadership as well as our daughter's great test results. As a transplant from California we chose the East Cobb area to get the wonderful schools. Thanks Tritt!

I don't think a parent could ask for much more than Tritt provides. It's a wonderful school and my first grader LOVES it here.

We love this school for absolutely great leadership and dedicated team. All school staff is a team of professionals who know how to simply work with children with different needs and skills. It was easy to communicate or ask for help. Our son loves all teacher; they have become a part of his life.

I wrote a review when my oldest child was in Kindergarten, and thought it would be helpful to update my review now that my children are older (Third and Fourth respectively). Both of my children are receiving a wonderful education at Tritt. It is truly a top notch public school. I have had the good fortune to volunteer with both the Foundation and the PTA, and the parents and administration at this school are incredibly involved and welcoming. I have seen this school continue to overcome problem after problem...lower budget, larger class sizes, change of curriculum...Yet this school continues to push ahead to meet every challenge head on and still give my children a well -rounded, exceptional education. Next year my oldest child will be in Fifth grade, and I have no concerns that she will not be well prepared to move on to middle school and beyond. If you want your child to have a solid foundation, you have chosen the right school. Keep in mind this is is a public school and it is bound by the Cobb County education system which does limit what it can do for some children, but overall I highly recommend Tritt. It is truly a fantastic community school.

I love our school and feel very blessed to have our children going here. We moved to this area specifically for this school district when our oldest was ready to start Kindergarten and it was the best decision we could have made. Our school offers so much through the Tritt Tiger Foundation and PTA programs, it is as close to a private school that a public school can get. The Foundation funds a science lab, a certified science lab teacher, two computer labs and a computer lab teacher. They also fund a floating parapro that helps out where there is need. This year, they also funded ipads for the kids to enrich their education experience.. I could go on and on... truly this school is exceptional. Parental involvement is huge and strongly encouraged with many ways to help out even if you cannot physically be there due to work or schedule. I have always had a positive experience with getting help for my daughters when they needed it, in fact the admin and staff go out of their way to do what they can when asked for help. The atmosphere when you walk through the school is a very positive one. My kids love going to school and that is the best thing a parent could ever ask for.

My daughter attends Tritt Elementary and loves it. It is a great school with a dedicated staff, teachers, and parents. My daughter just turned 5 years old at the end of August and is having a difficult time with all that is expected in Kindergarten but still loves going to school. Her teacher is doing everything she can to help her be successful. We have had great communication so far and I know the teacher has the best interest of my daughter at heart. As for those parents who are complaining that the school asks for money please note there isn't a school in Cobb County that doesn't seek money from parents. With these difficult economic times it is a requirement to seek funds for the "extras." The money that is raised by the Tritt Foundation goes to fully support the science and computer labs which are not standard classes at elementary schools in Georgia. Think about what you are getting by having your child attend an East Cobb public school and look at the prices of private schools in the area; I think you will re-evaluate your comments.

I love this school! The teachers are excellent! The administration is accessible! The FAST program (after school enrichment) is really impressive! Many programs to meet your child's learning style (family program, target). Lots of parent involvement. My kids love it and so do I!

I have a kindergartner, I'm very surprised that nobody here mention that academics are the 2nd priority ,The school love your pocket $$$$ first, They make so many requests and events,to raise money.but you pay for all the after hrs classes. The people or families that are active on the schools have better attention,The rules do not apply for families close to the board or those that gives lots of money,They will love you. Some teachers are great educators others don't worth mention...almost of all stuff events in class are paid by the parents.

Tritt is very good school with alot to offer. They are a little too preoccupied with test scores but in today's world who can blame them. They have excellant parent involvement and kind staff. They have limited resources for kids who are just below average and need help catching up.

This school is awesome. My child's been at Tritt for two years now and we couldn't be happier. The academic standards are very high yet she gets a great deal of help reaching them. The atmosphere overall seems very enthusiastic and upbeat. The faculty/staff is doing quite well with the less-than-perfect facilities/grounds the county has provided. The science lab and playground equipment are great! I take exception to a few of the previous ratings stating that test scores are stressed too highly and that students with special needs get poor/bad assistance. I have found this to be quite the opposite in my own experience and that of friends and neighbors. The counselors are marvelous. Don't get me wrong, it has a few wrinkles--some parents are gossippy, the annex building is sad, parking is nonexistent. These are very minor things. The major things--academics and nurturing--are spot on.

All three years of my son's enrollment he has been in a class of more than 20 kids. Request for a classroom with lower population was not accepted. If you do not have a cookie cutter kid this is not the place! This year's teacher had very poor communication skill along with bad classroom managment. Lot of forgetting homework, send another kid' graded home with mine, sending the same homework home more than once. She also did alot of saying one thing but making him do another. Needless to say I may be in a good school district but it only impacts my home value as I am now paying for private school.

Tritt has many extra activities. Unfortunately, I found them to be very 'test-score' oriented. If your child does not test / perform to meet their standards, they will suggest ADD / ADHD medications, persistently.

This school does have great test scores...they will never let you forget it, though. The number of timed tests throughout the year to prepare your child for standardized test is too much. There should be more focus on the individual child rather than just shuttling the children who aren't fast on the tests into special ed. to keep those scores up.

Tritt has been an excellent school with above average parent and teacher involvement. Runs like a public shcool with significant private funding to provide additional education. Very attentive teachers and administration. Safety is outstanding.

I realize this a review section, not a forum, but I feel it necessary to rebut the review posted in December of 2004. I think it is cowardly to come to a nationally recognized website and besmirch the qualifications and performance of two exceptional professionals all the while shrouding yourself in cloak of anonymity. Furthermore, Tritt elementary had a grand total of 2 new teachers for the school year in question, so if any of the 'involved' parents stopped by to read a review, it would take them about one second to figure to whom the writer refers. These so-called 'green' and 'disorganized' teachers continually exceed expectations with regard to communication with parents and academic and social growth for their students. If the earlier reviewer had been fortunate enough to have them I am certain that she would not feel that her child was at risk for being left behind.

Tritt touts itself to be the best in Georgia, but I just couldn't see it. Its a farce! Parental involvement is phenomenal; like none I've ever seen. However, if your child needs extra help, falls behind, or is in any way not one of the top achievers, Tritt is all about leaving your child behind. In fact, this pay for performance school will simply push your child back to avoid hurting the school's test scores. They wanted to put my son back in kindergarten with no testing, no explanation, no nothing after he'd spent 3 weeks in frist grade. I refused and my son went on to be one of the better students in the class with some tutoring from home. But, the school offered little help and seemed to care only about my child affecting their test scores. They didn't care about helping individual children. Good lunches.

We moved to this area in 2003 for the purpose of getting our kids into the best school. 2003-2004 was great! There was also a change in principal this year - so the jury is still out on this. But the kids are great - the parents are totally involved - and overall we are pleased.

We moved to the area to improve school opportunities for our children. We picked well. Tritt has exceeded our expectations in all areas -teachers, administrators and parent involvement. I feel our children are receiving the best education in the area and we couldn't be happier.

Tritt is a great school! I have three children attending there and am constantly amazed at the commitment of the teachers. They go above and beyond to make sure the children not only pass but excel in academics. In addition, the parents have done an amazing job keeping the school in great condition and well-equipped.
