This is a wonderful school and learning enviroment for our students. The school faculity and all academics are grade A+ they have excellent after school programs as well. We moved from Whitfield County School to Catoosa and the change in school systems and how the are being operated are truly doing an awesome job. I'm very proud to be a part of Catoosa County and we feel that this was one of the best decision that we have made keep the good work up! One more thing there is a lot of parent envolment and it shows.

This has been a great school for both my daughter and son. I can't praise the teachers and staff enough. They are wonderful- friendly, hard-working, and always helpful. They work hard to meet the needs of all the students- the gifted, students that need a little more help, & students with special needs. Tutoring is offered after school, as well as other enrichment programs (clubs). Currently they offer an after-school program full of fun and learning activities- at no extra cost. They also have after school care (at low cost) if your child needs to stay longer. The summer camp program has always been a favorite of my kids. The principal and vp are always interacting with the kids- they are great motivators to get the kids active and to do their best work. Parent involvement is always encouraged. I have always felt welcome at this school.

My Grandaughter just repeated first grade and she is excelling. She missed Kindergarten having missed over 40+ days. Her first time in the first grade was horrible, she was so far behind, causing frustration and could have resulted in low self esteem. However, Her teachers last year and this year have worked so very hard with her she has excelled this year and her self esteem is much improved, which could have easily broken her little spirit, but the caring of the staff their has boosted her confidence about herself. I can't praise her teachers and the school enough. I can't thank them enough for my little granddaughter and I. They have been a Godsend. The extracurricular activities are plenty and available for all students. I've noticed much parent in both years that my grandaughtr has gone their. I cannot praise this school enough.
