Kedron Elementary is excellent because the teachers are excellent. Mrs. Couch got an award for teaching. Mrs. Hendrix is a good teacher. The afterschool program is good. Whoever said the principle was difficult to communicate with is right. The school is good because of the teachers, the afterschool program and fantastic PTO, not the administration.

My daughter is about to complete her kindergarten year at Kedron. She loves her school, her teachers (Mrs. Christman and Mrs. Callahan), and has really blossomed socially and academically. Kedron is, in my personal opinion, the best elementary school in Peachtree City. (However, you can't really go wrong with most of the schools in Peachtree City.) I have volunteered often over the last year and have found that parental involvement is highly encouraged and appreciated. The principal and vice-principal are kind and generous. Kedron Elementary is a Triple Crown School earning the Georgia Platinum Award, Georgia School of Excellence and National Blue Ribbon School for the year of 2006. I am truly excited about my child's future at Kedron.

Kedron for the most part is a great school. We only have experience with the younger grades, but found the teachers to be excellent. The principal, we found, is difficult to communicate with, and was not helpful to us as newcomers. Her helpfulness depended on how 'in' you were with her. That was dissapointing. However, programs and expectations at this school are great. Our kids loved Kedron.

Cheryl Wiley is a good teacher. Not all are so good. You have to get your child into the right class. The principal gets angry if you ask questions. Level of parent involvement and extracurricular activities is good.

I would never have thought it possible for my child to be in a school where the students are surrounded by excellent teachers, amazine para pros, gifted staff and such caring administrators. There is no doubt that they love our children. We looked only at houses in Peachtree City where our boys could still be zoned to attend Kedron!

Kedron is an excellent school! It has great teachers (ex. Ms. Hendrix - 4th) who strive to provide the best learning experience for ALL their students. The facilities are new and well planned. With the exception of no foreign languages (due to lack of funding), the school provides wonderful programs/activities above and beyond for the children. Parent involvement is high, which is always a big plus.
