I have two students at Sweet Apple Elementary and they are thriving! Was incredibly pleased with our schools recent report card rating too -- the highest in Roswell and one of top (3) in North Fulton. Impressed with administration, teachers, and parent involvement.
Sweet Apple is a wonderful school. Everyone is so helpful and they are very focused on doing what is best for all the students. You are able to be in contact with the teachers and staff at all times and that gives me a great sense of security. So happy we moved to this area and able to attend Sweet Apple!
We moved just prior to our oldest son was headed to K. We used this website to help us determine where to look for houses. Based on the grades this school got and the word of mouth from others living in the area we settled on Sweet Apple. We have been very impressed, the school is well managed and has wonderful teachers. The administration is very attuned to the parents and genuinely cares about the families in the district. They very much work to educate each child to their ability.
Due to corporate relo, this is our 3rd elementary school for our children and by far the best! Great administrators, teachers and engaged parents. The PTO-funded Science Lab is beyond expectations. Technology education for students and parents is cutting-edge.
Incredible school with great parent involvement. Love the use of technology across all subjects. The PTO funded iPad carts and Science Lab set this school apart from previous schools my children have attended.
fantastic! Awesome! Super involved community, teachers, administrators and opportunities for the students and their families.
Sweet Apple Elementary is an incredible school with dedicated staff and teachers. The school and campus is beautiful. Technology is important to Sweet Apple, and teachers are trained to teach with it!!
We are in our second week of Kindergarten here and I have to say we're off to a great start. I'm very thankful for the communication we get from the teacher, principal and PTO. We're glad to be here!
One of the best in North Fulton! Great, hands on teachers and principal. My son loves going to school and enjoys the teachers and you can tell the parents are involved in their children's education as well. SO happy with our decision to enter this school district with our move!
The communication between staff and parents is phenomenal! The parent involvement is the BEST I have ever seen!! LOVE this SCHOOL!!!
Sweet Apple is a wonderful school with dedicated teachers, staff and parents!! Our kids love going to school!!
My son has been at SAE for 4 years and we have had a great experience, both academically as well as socially. He has excelled on all levels and is happy with his school envrionment. The PTA is very strong, which I honestly believe, has a lot to do with all that the school is able to offer (resource-wise). As with any school, there are caveats. It would be great to be in a school such as this, with a more socio-economically diverse community. Also, while most of the kids do well in school, I wonder if A's are doled out . . . could be a bit more challenging (I think). Overall, however, I find this to be an excellent public school. No real complaints on my part.
I see below that a teacher is upset by the fact that the parents at Sweet Apple are involved. Isn't that the duty of a parent? Stay involved, communicate with the teacher and administration when needed, and support them when possible. I dare say the schools that do not have the parental involvement also have problems with test scores and discipline. No school is perfect and not all parents make good decisions. Best wishes on finding the perfect environment you are searching for - it does not exist. Perhaps you need to change your attitude and develop your skills to overcome challenges. Sweet Apple is a wonderful school - the staff, administration, and PTA plan to continue to keep it that way.
Sweet Apple is an excellent school. The teachers are very supportive of the children and they effectively communicate to parents how their children are and what areas they need to look out for. The atmosphere is very positive and I am very happy with my child's progress.
SAE met and exceeded our expectations in most areas. The quality of the teachers is exceptional. The enrichment programs are wonderful. There is constant and open communication between parents and teachers. Parents are active in the classrooms. Overall, a great place school for our children.
SAE is without a doubt a 'parent-centered' school. I have never taught in an environment where the teachers are constantly questioned about everything and rarely backed up by the administration. The teachers at SAE are wonderful and dedicated to the students. Never holding children accountable doesn't help them in the long run and I know the children of SAE are not being taught in the way they should to help them to not only pass tests, but be good people as well. If you are a teacher looking for a job, SAE will judge you, hold you to impossible standards (as far as dealing with the parents are concerned) and the same rules do not apply for everyone. If that sounds like what you signed up for, then have a blast!
Sweet Apple has a very friendly Principal and Assistant Principal. I am just amazed that they can keep the names of their 900 students straight. They do a great job! It is common for me to see the Assistant Principal outside greeting the students when they arrive. What a nice touch! The school and PTA has been investing heavily in Activboard technology which is great. The only thing I can think of that needs some improvement would be the custodial work. The building is new but would benefit from a deep cleaning and bathroom maintenance. I think this is to be expected from time to time when you are serving the number of students that Sweet Apple has. I have confidence that Administration will proactively work on this.
