On the exterior, this school is a well polished, safe and sturdy institution. However, the infrastructure tells the tale. The principal is almost always MIA leaving the visibility to the APs. The teachers range from bullying themselves to apathetic. Some seemed actually qualified and interested in their students. Most seem irritated or nonchalant. Any any event, the overall feeling is counterproductive to what children should be receiving. Teacher quality is sadly missing. If you have the option, find a real public school in Gwinnett. A travesty and a shame.
This is a beautiful new school, the school does have problems to work through, however it absolutely could become a school that fosters a passion for learning that lasts a lifetime. But accountability and a commitment to student safety has to be restored before this vision is 20/20. The class rooms are over crowded like must schools. Great support from teachers and counselors. My first 9 weeks experience at this school has been a horrific mess. Yes it involves bullying. This is only my opinion but the school leaders are indifferent towards acts of bullying. They do not follow up when acts of bullying are reported and are ineffective with their actions of discipline to deter the bullying from continuing. I lack the words to express how i felt when the school leader boldly defended the rights of the instigator(smh). The school behavior code and their support of the GCPS board anti-bullying policy are not enforced. They are just policy the school stores in file 13 to utter their no-tolerance for bullying hogwash. Parents from dekalb, rushing to get your child into a gwinnett school, should not let this be the only school they consider for their child.
I had my twin boys in ALES for kindergarten and half of 1st grade. One of my boys had a speech problem and I started in kindergarten trying to get him in speech therapy, they didn't start him until right before we transferred half way through 1st grade. A YEAR AND A HALF!! This school is still new and working out the kinks, but what really made us move was the area, we didn't feel safe anymore the area is really going down hill.
This is a fantastic school with ever increasing school spirit and enthusiam. It looks like a castle on a hill--who wouldn't love to get an education here?
