Assistant Principal Baker has made this school one that children cannot wait to attend. Set in a lovely area, its safe, secure and welcoming.
I love this this school! I am so impressed with the teachers and support staff. I have 2 children there and will have one more shortly. You cannot ask for a better school for your children!! The school is clean and well maintained.Communication is outstanding!!! *****************
My daughter will be entering 5th grade and son be going to 3rd grade...both my kids been there since K and they love it there! Great teachers they show they care and the communication is Amazing, also the staff is Great, school is super clean...Mr. Almond is the best principal...it is the best Elementry School in Barrow County!!
I'm very happy with this school and my son will be leaving this year. i'm sorry to see my son leave because not only is he my baby,but he had the best year since being there in 2nd grade. All the teachers are awesome and I love them dearly! I will truly miss all of them next year since both my children will be in middle school. Keep up all the caring,compassion !the school is beautiful,since I was at the school before they did all the remodeling! They really did make the school nice. Thank you Mr. Almond for making your staff the best!!!
I have two children that go to this school. My son is in first grade and my daughter is in kindergarden. I love the everyone at the aschool and I especially love the special needs Teachers. All the tearchers are great. It takes someone special to work with children with special needs. They have done wonders with my son. I couldn't ask for a better school. Thank You to everyone at Statham Elementry for being so kind and caring to me and my children. I have seen so much change in my son from all the special needs classes he reccieves.
My daughter loves the school. Before we moved here from out of state we toured the school with the assistant pricipal and it was in the middle of a remodel, and it look like it needed some new paint. The school turned out beautiful and my daughter is now in first grade and loves her teacher. Her kindergarten teacher was awesome also! I can't wait until my other daughters get to go to school there when they a little older. Way to go Statham Elementary!
Our family moved from another state and we picked this city because of it's great school system. Statham Elementary exceeded our expectations. Our daughter was in Kindergarten last year and her teacher was phenomenal. I was very pleased with the level of interaction between parents and teachers. I am also pleased that Principal Mac Almond is such a forward thinking person and he does truly care for his school and students. The teachers are great and class engagement is very noticeable. My daughter justs raves about this school and her teacher. I am sorry to see that a parent left such a discerning comment about the school. I just see her situation as an isolated case and I can not imagine that this school would offer such terrible services. The public bus drivers are even great. The school system overall makes Barrow County a great place to reside.
Statham is a wonderful school, small but growing rapidly, with a new addition that opened this year (2007). I have an 8-year-old son who has been at SES since K and he absolutely loves school. All the staff anywhere in he school remembers and calls him by his name and that makes him feel special.
We transferred out of the Gwinnett County school system and I am very pleased that Statham is a much smaller school. My children love it there. On their second day I was very pleased to see that the staff recognized my children and even remembered their names. The teachers are very involved with the children and love their jobs. Statham is a very nuturing enviroment and I am proud to send my kids there.
I have my oldest daughter attending Statham Elementary, she is in Kind. We have been so pleased! I love the fact that the school is small, it makes her experience so much more personal! Mac Almond is an amazing principal and the teachers are incredible! Lots of parent involvement, I love to volunteer and help out! Statham Elementary has been great, we look forward to sending our other two daughters there soon!
The teachers and PTO are very supportive of the students. Mac Almond is one of the best principals I have ever meet.
i believe that the scope program needs to be redefined. It needs to offer a large variety of subjects and not focus so much on reading.
I removed my child from this school to a private school. The afterschool care facility is very poor and filthy. The communication between Parents and Staff is very poor. The special needs and education is very poor.
I have two sons ages 5 & 10 who attend Statham. This is a wonderfully preserved older school much like the one I attended by in the sixties! Parental involvement is high and the community really cares about supporting education. I have been very pleased with the education my children are receiving.
