My daughter has been at Pooler Elementary for 3 years and we have had wonderful teachers! We came to Pooler from Godley Station, at first I wasn't sure that we would like it but now we wouldn't think of going to any other school in the area. One thing I have noticed is Chatham County seems to put ALOT of $ into the new schools technology and equiptment while the older schools are kind of forgotten and rarely ever updated. We could use some of the newer equiptment in our school, but nonetheless Pooler teachers do a great job with what they have!

I had the worst time with this school. My son is not perfect by no means but this school was the worst thing for him. He got high honor roll at West Chatham each grading mark but when they changed when Godley Station started we got rerouted to Pooler Elementary he never even got honor roll just got in trouble for alot of unnecessary things. They stress way too much about everything but teaching our children. If I could go back I would of moved, argued anything to get my son to not attend Pooler Elementary. The good thing is they have an amazing speech therapist.

I would not recommend any parent to send their kids to this school. They have too many teachers with attitudes. I had a problem with my daughters teacher and this was her first year at school. She made her feel like she didn't care about questions she asked. Would not bring my kids to this again. They need to do better...not all the staff but too many for my taste to have attitudes like that and work with kids.!!!!!

Take it from a parent who paid for private school for 8 years prior, POOLER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IS AWESOME! The administration is excellent, which makes the teachers proud to work there and they do an excellent job of inspiring these students! My son is very smart but lazy. I was concerned he would "dumb down" in the public school system vs private. I was wrong. His teacher and everyone else took such a proactive approach to not only teaching, but inspiring the kids! Pooler Elementary School is like a well kept secret treasure. In my opinion, my child did better at this little public school than he did in 8 years at Savannah Christian. He made nearly straight A's at both schools, but didn't have the faculty and teachers that care at the one I paid all of the money to for years. Also, in fifth grade, my son had 28 kids in his class at the private school, but only 17 kids (and a paraprofessional) at Pooler Elementary. If you are considering paying for private school and you are in the Pooler district, save your money for middle and high school! I couldn't have been any happier!

Excellent , caring teachers and support staff, always willing to field questions or concerns. Extremely vivacious in teaching tactics and truly genuine. All three of my children attended Pooler, the youngest is in the 5th grade now. Even through times of transition, attention given to students never foundered. Admin staff always pleasant and supportive. New year, new leadership. Attention to discipline is welcomed; it's amazing how much more can be taught/learned in an environment that is not disruptive!

Better than many in the area, but the administration makes it difficult to volunteer and see what is going on in the classrooms; much focus on discipline and rules takes away from learning; we will be moving to another district ASAP

My son went to Kindergarten last year. Pooler Elementary exceeded all expectations. I was amazed at how much they did with these young children. Very friendly teachers and persistent with helping your child achieve.

My daughter has been attending Pooler Elementary since her second semester of Kindergarten. She will be entering the third grade this upcoming year. Both my husband and I are extremely pleased with the academic curriculum and the extracurricular activities available to the students. All the teachers are friendly, helpful and caring. Parental involvement is encouraged and appreciated. I am proud to say my child attends Pooler Elementary, and openly encourage newcomers to the area to try our elementary school, as I am sure they will not be disappointed. If only our choices were as good for Middle and High School, our child would remain in the public system. Patricia

For 2006-2007 there is a new Principal and a some New teachers, They are wonderful and supportive. The average class size in 2nd grade is only 17 students. Our class has a class pet. They have a great gifted program,where they meet 4x a week. I also volunteer by teaching Spanish.I hope next year we get more volunteers for this so each class can have Spanish 1x a week. There is a wonderful Art and Music program, and many fun activities, Field Trips,Dances, Math Science night,etc. A good AR program, Good Teacher support where children who read above grade level, can have extra book projects to further their learning. The children seem very happy there.

I am not happy with this School and I think that you are doing your child a disservice by sending them there. The Students to Teacher ratios are extremely high. The Academics of the School are also behind.

We recently move to Pooler and unfortunately my children attend Pooler Elementary. A lot of the teachers really have bad attitudes. What kind of school does not offer tuturing for the students that they need it. I really hate this school and will be transferring my children next year.

It's a wonderful school! I went there when I was little! Every day my child comes home and tells me all the wonderful things she learns! Also Pooler is such a great place!
