The one star parent is right and although the parents don't won't to see it written related to the bad about their school, such is life. Teasley is closely connected with the community, the school has good ratings, and some good teachers but there are problems with administration, correct placement of teachers, parent input, and a loving vs robotic, stale environment. You take the good with the bad at every school but just be prepared that ratings don't tell the whole story at Teasley.

I have a fifth grader at Teas ley and will be sad to leave Teasley when she moves on to middle school. We've felt blessed that she has had wonderful, supportive teachers. We originally went to Teasley to "try out" the public school system before going to private school, but decided to stay based on the positive environment. Although Teasley has grown while we've been there, the sense of community has remained the same. I feel the teachers give meaningful feedback on my child's strengths and weaknesses and, despite the fact that she has been working above grade level, have pushed her to grow and excel. I am happy with the administration and love that they are frequently in the classrooms, keeping a close eye to make sure they are fully aware of what goes on throughout the school. I think the standard attire uniforms have created a positive atmosphere as well. I just can't say enough...go visit for a tour and see for yourself!

To the parent who posted "The previous one star review offers a lot of conjecture",being a part of a community is also about being able to express your views. Thank you for sharing yours now allow me to share mine without your judgement. Three of my child's former teachers, who were exceptional, have left the school stating they were being targeted by the principal. I will not go into details but these are teachers that I know and trust. I have volunteered in their classrooms and witnessed first hand how they implement the standards and provide challenging and supportive work environments. Other teachers I have talked to have witnessed these teachers being given poor evaluations and they are running scared...right to other schools. Principals need to be exceptional leaders and managers and Ms. Mansfield has managed to get rid of certain teachers she wants out while ignoring the teachers who are not doing what they are supposed to be doing (my child had 2 of those as well and let's not even start with the ASP teachers.) Thank you for considering my thoughts and understanding my experience does not need to be judged just because it is different from yours.

Teasley is an awesome school. Our son just entered his second year at Teasley (1st grade) and we are extremely impressed with the entire Teasley community. The teachers love the children and the curriculum is on par with any private school. We also love how strong the PTA is and love Teasley's diversity; something you can't often get in a private school. Save your money and join the Tiger community!

My daughter is in 1st grade at Teasley and I could not be happier. The staff has been wonderful. Even though it is a large school it feels small in that everyone knows everyone. I truly feel like the teachers care about their students. The PTA does a great job in raising money and keeping the parents engaged. I truly hope we can roll the great momentum up to the middle schools and high school here in Smyrna!

The previous one star review offers a lot of conjecture and very little substance. Sorry that you've had a bad experience. My has been up and down with really great moments and some not so great. The great moments were the result of the efforts of teachers and the parents that create the Teasley community for the students. Teasley has some great teachers, there is no disputing that. The heart of Teasley is the teachers. Regarding the administration, like any school, the administration deals with a lot of issues from a lot of parents and they are doing the best they can. It is a very tough job and not being perfect, they don't always get it right. It's a work in progress with people in relatively new roles. The bottom line is that Public schools are there to serve the community and Teasley wants to be the best school it can be. Sometimes it comes up short, so instead of writing a self-satisfying, axe to grind review; how about offering some insight so perhaps changes can be made and future parents and children can have a better experience than you did. That is what being a part of a community is about.

The principal, Ms. Mansfield, is absolutely wonderful! She knows all the children and cares deeply about each one. In addition, she provides a warm, welcoming environment for parents. It is clear that her main goal is the make sure each child is doing their very best. During her time at Teasley, Ms. Mansfield has hired top notch teachers. I cannot say enough good things about our experience at Teasley Elementary!

We have been at Teasley for 5 years. I have been amazed at the changes over these years. I know that these changes have started with our administration. Our principal has given great leadership as she has poured into our students, teachers and parents the pursuit of excellence in education and heart for the community there. The kids know by the hugs and the positive messages she speaks into them each day. Teasley has something incredibly special with the diversity, the passion for kids' success, the programs and activites offered that augment the education, and the genuine care for everyone to work together to make these kids enjoy coming every day! I am an advocate for our school and our administration, as that where it begins!

Teasley Elementary is a fantastic elementary school! The faculty and staff are so loving & caring with each individual child. Leslie Mansfield, the principal, treats every child as if they are her own. She truly cares deeply about the successes of each student. The parents are encouraged to volunteer and be present in the daily academic lives of the students. The renovations that will take place over the next year and a half are only going to enhance the school's ability to serve the Smyrna Community.

We are in our fifth your at Teasley with a 4th grader and 1st grader. Leslie Mansfield, the Teasley principal does a fabulous job advocating for her staff and also supporting the parents. She is very personable and knows each child by name. The grade level teachers and special teachers are caring and go above and beyond their regular duties and expectations. There are ample enrichment opportunities at Teasley with after school programs and various clubs/chorus. There are lots of opportunities for parents to volunteer at the school with a very active PTA and Foundation. Would highly recommend Teasley to families in our Smyrna community.

Teasley has very caring and concerned teachers willing to go above and beyond to help children. My child was struggling during the 1st quarter with math and reading (we were alerted to this through an academic alert which gets sent home at mid-term when any child is at risk of getting a C (or 1) on their report card.) We met with the teacher and she informed us of the specific areas my child needed to work on. Because of that extra work and communication with the teacher, my child was able to bring the grades up. All of my child's teachers through the years there are very responsive to email and/or scheduling a meeting if needed.

We have had children at Teasley for the past 5 years. We could not have been more pleased with our boys' educational experiences there. The teachers are wonderful and always receptive when I have reached out with questions or concerns. My boys have thrived there. The administrative staff is also amazing. They are always at the doors greeting students or in carpool line helping students come in for the day. They are very visible, not behind the scenes and are also receptive to parental concerns. Finally, the school has an active PTA and Foundation that work together for our school. We have been lucky enough to have a supplemental science teacher the past 2 years and the position was completely funded by our Foundation. I cannot say enough good things about Teasley, great school!

Teasley offers a great deal to students. I have two children in Teasley and a third will begin next year. The teachers are excellent and I feel my children are doing well enough that they will be able to get into a good private school in middle school if we choose that route. I am happy with the variety of extracurricular activities offered and the flexibility they have had in offering things when there is demand. Right now the school is about to undergo a huge construction project to expand and update the school. It speaks volumes for the school that the involved parents took so much time to work with the school board to get the previous overcrowding problem resolved. Parents want to send their children to Teasley because it truly is a great school.

We started at Teasley in 2011 and I now have 2 children in 2nd and K grades. Each child (as most parents can agree) learns, acts, and responds completely different from the other. Yet - each is thriving with their teacher. Parent involvement is encouraged at Teasley and the teachers, and especially our principal, Ms. Mansfield, has created an amazing atmosphere where everyone feels welcome and appreciated. Both of my children are thriving and I know they are well cared for while they are there - it makes a Mom feel great.

This is my 5th year at Teasley and I have seen this school grow with unbelievable strides. I was a little nervous to hear that my soon to be 1st grader would have to switch building this school year to allow for improvements at the main campus. After hearing and seeing how our principal has gone to back for our babies to make sure they are safe and comfortable at the new building has made me very happy. She really cares about our kids. My daughter and I are looking forward to share in this experience. And I will support this school 100%.

Academically Teasley is a good school. The teachers follow the curriculum and the students learn however there needs to be more "diversity" in this school when it comes to teachers. It is more then noticeable when you walk in the classroom that the children are culturally diverse and the teachers should reflect that or at least have training. All students should be treated the same.

This is my daughter's 3rd year at Teasley (entering 4th grade) and I couldn't be happier with her progress. Parental involvement seems to be limited to just the select percentage who can afford to be actively involved (SAHMs, for instance). There are a lot of extracurricular activities for the children and my daughter has excelled in all areas. The teachers keep the children safe and motivated. The staff is friendly and warm. I just wish they would give parents more notice of assemblies and such. The day before is NOT enough time to show up to support your child.

Teasley has fully met and exceeded expectations for my children. Teachers and staff are committed and caring. The facilities are small but an expansion is under way. Parental involvement cannot be more tangible than through the private Foundation funding (parent donation) of a Science Specialist position benefitting all grades. No other elementary school in the Smyrna or South County area has one. I can't think of a more relevant and impactful way to supplement the academic challenges our kids are facing today.

The new leadership is horrible and ineffective. We have been at Teasley for five years and the past two years have been the worst. The teachers in the upper grades have poor classroom management skills and poor teaching skills. The 4th grade parent below is correct in that no curriculum has been communicated to the parents all year. They had a math open house which made it clear they can't teach math. Additionally, they don't even try to work with the parents. In the meantime, the administration and PTA constantly solicit the parents for money for various projects but have no regard for the students. Under the prior leadership they would have never been able to get away with this. It's no wonder our lovely school has declined from a 9 to a 7 under this leadership.

My son has been at Teasley since 2nd grade and he is now in the 4th grade. (2012-2013) This has been the worst year by far. The teacher's do not keep the parents informed. My child was failing and I never knew until he received his report card. there's not a protocol in this aspect and this doesn't display my son best interest. He did not get the opportunity to work toward making a better grade. These teachers are unprofessional and the counselor is very unprofessional. There has been several incidents that involved teachers yelling at children and it was reported to the superintendent however this is still going on and nothing is being done about it.

Teasley has an experienced staff and great parental involvement. The leadership is warm and welcoming. However, there is a small percentage of students at Teasley being underserved. There are no advance learning opportunities for K- 2 students who do not qualify for Target (gifted education). For the caliber of students that Teasley receives each year, one would expect more enrichment or acceleration options for above average students. As many parents have noted in their review, Teasley has quite a few students entering 1st grade on a 2nd grade reading level, but if they don't meet a set of 3 criteria (one being scoring in the 99th percentile) their only options for acceleration and enrichment are random rigorless home projects.

I do appreciate the higher standards of teaching. However, I feel that the teaching staff is not diverse enough to represent the majority of their students. There are plenty of qualified "minority" teachers however Teasley seems unable to attain any. I also do not understand why the staff is so callous when dealing with parent inquiries and concerns. As a parent I should be comfortable with asking questions and voicing my concerns. Racism is prevalent everywhere, after all this is the South. I just feel that it should be better disguised.

I have two daughters at Teasley Elementary. I have been completely satisfied with this school since my now 5th grader started in the 2nd grade. My youngest daughter just started Kindergarten this year and wakes up every morning wanting to learn. Her teacher really pays attention to each individual kid and know what their strengths and weakness are. One of the strengths of Teasley is the parents participation and involvement. When I hear parents complain about the school, I notice that these are the parents that do not get involved with the school. I have notice a huge difference in my kids learning abilities when they see my husband and I getting involved and know what is going on with the school each week. There is no perfect school in the state of Georgia but Teasley is one of the best elementary school in the Cobb County.

Teasley Elementary is overrated. This is my son's first year at Teaseey and I am very disappointed. I moved to this school district because I heard Teasley is the best school in the area. If that is true, then the children of Cobb County are in trouble. The support staff is not friendly. They respond to your questions with short answers and it always seems like you're bothering them. Being a new parent to the school, I had a lot of questions about how the schools works and their policies that I feel went unanswered. Also the school recently hired a science specialist to teach the children. My only problem with this that one teacher spends one week with a grade and then rotates. Children should be exposed to science more. The school is drilling the students for their standarized test instead of actually teaching them. A parent should not be this concern with their child's school this early in the school year.

Teasley is a school that is declining in quality fast. My child went to kindergarten here and I could not have asked for anything more. The first grade teacher was very good as well. The second grade teacher was ok but as the children got older the disciplinary problems started to come up. We remove her from the school 1/2 way through the third grade and put her somewhere else. She was not getting homework from her teacher and she was receiving very little attention because the class was so disorderly. We also used ASP and found several of the staff quite disrespectful to the students. I was at this school every day to pick her up and never missed an event there. My x-wife also sat in on classes several times and we shared the same opinion on everything. When we started talking to some of the other parents we found out that they had the same opinions and concerns. Where my child is now is like night and day. The school is clean, upbeat, respectful and fun. I am glad we moved her and I regret we did not do it sooner. It will be interesting to see how the CRCT scores are.

Teasley Elementary s reputation for excellence is misleading is solely based on CRCT scores! I come from a family of educators and first I would like to point out that standardized testing is an inaccurate measure of gauging a student s full potential. We relocated from Northern NJ where my daughter attended school in an Award winning district. In comparison to those standards, Teasley fails miserably in educational quality. The well-meaning teachers are forced to adhere to teaching only to prepare students for the yearly CRCTs. This route method of learning is frustrating to my 2nd grader who is accustomed to thriving in a highly inquisitive, intellectual, and thought provoking learning environment. Math standards in 2nd grade are an utter disappointment; the children are given dittos of 100 math facts to remember. This is what the educators at Teasley consider 2nd grade math! My daughter already knew how to add and subtract prior to attending 2nd grade. Her boredom and frustration with this tedious busy work is expanding every day, as is my own!

Teasley is all smoke and mirrors! They could care less about parent input, unless it involves credit cards and checkbooks! The office staff is generally supercilious and short with the parents. Unless of course you are a frequent monetary contributor to the PTA and school functions, then the bright staff of Teasley can t seem to remove their lips from your . Needless to say, we will not attend Teasley next year. They are not called the little school on the hill for nothing! They are high and mighty as they sit perched on top of their pretentious hill snubbing the common folk!

Teasley is definitely riding off of its reputation. I think Georgia school system in its entirety should be overhauled. Stripped and rehabbed. When my child went to a school in a state up north the curriculum was more advanced. He was excited about going to school and he initiated conversation about what he learned when he came home. At Teasley and two other schools he's went to, he has complained about being bored. I've switched him twice because of this reason and the performance of the school's test scores. I really can't wait to get my child away from Georgia and its school system. Until then I will reinforce what he's learning with workbooks from the school system from the other state.

My child attended Teasley Elementary and compared to New York Schools they have a long way to go. They are good at telling you what you want to hear. Honestly not up to terms. Please trust in your child and not always what you have been told by its staff. My son was moved numerous of times in this school and never given reason to me. Totally unprofessional.

Many teachers are great and most really care about the children. Make sure you have a good fit for your child. The principal is very approachable and responsive. Too much homework and not enough help in the after school program for the kids of working parents. Too much TV in after school for my taste. This school (like many others) will restrict a child from recess as a form of discipline. This is really detrimental to their phyiscal and emotional well-being. While the color code system is helpful to know how well your child behaved that day, it can be harsh and humiliating for a child in the hands of an insensitive teacher.

I moved in the area so that my daughter could start kindergarten at Teasley. Being extremely honest, as a first time parent you aren't always aware of everything. My daughter was placed in the Early Intervention program and I was devastated. My daughter has since surpassed all of my expectations, she writes well, her reading is excellent and math will be her best subject. She will be promoted to the 1st grade and will be out of the EIP. The teachers are wonderful; they are faced with so many challenges and always rise to the occasion. I couldn t imagine having to tell a parent anything negative about their child. They do it honestly, with compassion and with the children's best interests at heart. I think the behavior cards are a great tool and helps parents with disciplining. There is a heavy parent involvement through the PTA. The ASP program is an excellent supplement for extracurricular activities. All these things make Teasley such a great elementary school.

The teachers go above and beyond and the administration has an open door policy. Parents are invited to be involved and share the commitment to the school's success.

This is a school committed to the success of each child. The administration and staff work hard to incorporate best practices daily into the instructional program. Students are recognized for their individual differences and continuously encouraged to learn and be successful. Parents are invited to be involved in the school and share this deep commitment to the learning community.

The school truly tries to get parents involved and invite them to participate and support the students and staff. I felt welcomed and valued.

My daughter spent her 1st grade in Teasley and the school is good from all perspectives except maybe extracurricular activities could have been a bit more. But overall this is one of the best elementary schools in the area. The staff , teachers and the principal are all very friendly and approachable and ready to help out whenever required. The discipline is school is very positively reinforced using the ' behavior cards ' . The school grounds are kept immaculately clean and the indoors have a very bright feeling. Parent involvement is very high. Academically there is scope for improvement .

My children attended Teasley for for grades kindergarten through fifth. It was a great experience. They were both accepted at local private schools for middle school and were well prepared. It is a diverse, real world, student body - and I am thrilled to have had my children experience all different cultures. The teachers and staff are great.

Great school! Parents are highly involved. Teachers are willing to go above and beyond to help students. The school has a positive discipline system that works effectively.

We've been here since kindergarten. I used to love this school, but it's gone downhill since then. The teachers are overtasked; they don't know how to discipline so they take away recess, which is horrible considering the lack of opportunity for physical activity. One 15 minute recess, and PE two days a week. The stress and expectations are too high for kids this age. My child, who is in the Target program, is stressed out and miserable in her regular class. We've not been impressed with the teachers the last two years. It's too much homework, teach to the CRCTs and 'prepare for middle school.'

My daughter is in 3rd grade. The academic programs are good. I like the 'Tiger paw' that they present to the students for good performance. The school premises are very well maintained. Physical activity seems to be lacking, though I must admit that they involve parents to a huge extent. There are lots of mailers that come home, which in my opinion can be reduced to save time and effort. Overall, I have no regrets for admitting my child in this school.

I have two children at Teasley and I must say it is truly 'The Best Little School In GA'. I love it. The teachers and principals go above and beyond and it is all for the children. This is a wonderful school, I could not have chosen a better place if I tried!

When I moved to Atlanta, selection of elementary school was number one on my priority list. I did lot of research and finally chose Teasley for my kids. I also chose to rent instead of buy for an year to ensure that I am happy with the school. Now I can happily say that this one of the best schools that I could have snet my child. I even talked to several parents in other school districts and found that Teasley comes ahead in terms of overall quality. Now I bought the house in the school district area. This area also offers close commute to downtown and the airport. With 500 people added to this metro area every day, this school is going to be a great choice for the future.

My child attended Teasley a few years back and I must say it is a good school, but some of the teachers there do not have the students best interest at heart. So it really depends on whose class your child is in.

I have three children at Teasley Elementary. I have found it to be a great school. I am very involved in my children's classes and with their teachers. Tiger Pride is a great behavior reward program! There are many involved parents that make it great.

Teasley is a wonderful school! We are so happy that our daughter has had the opportunity to attend Teasley. The teachers work with the students and are willing to help children who are having a hard time. We had the chance to send our daughter to private school but sent her on to Teasley. We really made the right choice! We could not be happier with Teasley!

Teasley. Worst School in Georgia. The teachers are horrible. They don't teah the children. They are unorganized, loosing papers and then blaming it on the students. That is unexceptable. I highly recommend not sending your child to this school. You will find that just like the others and I Teasley is a real dissapointment.

Teasley offers outstanding leadership and teaching with a superior gifted program. The great diversity in race, socioeconomics, culture, religion, language, and abilities provides an enriching and rewarding experience. Parent involvement is encouraged and welcomed. All of our children are so happy here, and we believe they are at the best little school in Georgia!

My daughter has been at Teasley since the 1st grade and she has had a wonderful learning experience. She will be in the 5th grade this year and she is already dreading leaving her friends and teachers. Teasley really encourages an atmosphere of 'family' and fosters full involvement by parents, grandparents, siblings, etc. It is really a special school!
