This school is great! I love the way the teachers teach the children and the kids really learn a lot.


Posted November 7, 2006

My daughter has been in this school for the 2 fulls years she has been here in Georgia. She loves all her teachers and the teachers that help out in other areas as well. The staff at the school does everything they can to help keep the kids on track. The parents are very involved and I am involved as much as I can be as well. I would recommend this school to all my friends, and have. Even had a friend move her child OUT of a Christian school because she felt this school was better. Her daughter is doing great as well. Way to go Upson Lee North.

I have two children in this school. All the staff is caring and will help you in any way they can. The special ed. teachers are wonderful. They really help the children to get a grip on things.
