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.
Half the staff wanting to leave? Says something about the principal losing the best teachers. We're out of here too, would rather pay for private school.
We love Teasley. Teasley is a great school with fantastic teachers! The administration is dedicated to creating a learning environment that is supportive and successful.
My child has attended Teasley for the past three years. I have been extremely pleased with the teachers, administrators, and overall feel of the school. 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!
We have been extremely happy at Tesley. The teachers are great and truly care about the academic success of the students. Ms. Mansfield, knows all the children and is an active participant in the day. You will always see her around the school. We just registered our daughter for Kindergarten and we are excited for her to start her journey at Teasley--I would encourage people to come take a tour and see all the great things going on at Teasley.
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.
My daughter is in 2nd grade at Teasley and we have had the most wonderful experience! I couldn't be happier!
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!
Have been thrilled with Teasley. Principal Mansfield has been AWESOME and the new construction is going to really be fantastic!! Have one child in 2nd and another soon to start Kindergarten in the fall. Our teachers have been TOP NOTCH!! Best little school in Georgia!
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.
My son has been going to Teasley since Kindergarten and my son loves it! His teacher is very passionate and cares about him doing well and take the time to give him the attention he needs. The principal (Mrs Mansfield) is very dedicated and the kids love her too!
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%.
Teasley is a fantastic group of close knit families with fantastic teachers and staff, all led by a principal who bleeds purple and works hard to make Teasley "the best little school in town". We love Teasley!
