Tyrone Elementary was permanently closed in May 2013 after 82 years of service to the community. It was teriffic, but fell victim to the great recession and overbuilding of new schools in the county.

Parents, I would definitely send your children here. I have gone to this school since Pre-K, and I am now in Middle School. I go to a Private School now and I have learned more at Tyrone than in 6th and 7th grade. I still LOVE this school.

I cannot say enough about this school. It is absolutely awesome, truly Tyrone, Ga's best kept secret. Very very personable staff from top to bottom. Felt more like family more than anything. It pains me deeply to have had to withdraw my child due only to a relocation to Denver. My daughter is currently in the 5th grade and has been there since the 2nd grade. Since she's been there she' been promoted to the talented and gifted program. I have tears just writing this review. DO NOT hesitate to enroll your child, you will not be disappointed.

I have five children and all of my children have attended this school. The school provides a wonderful environment for learning and encourages each child to perform at his/her personal best. I have always been pleased with the teachers and administrative staff and their willingness to go the extra mile for the students. I am proud that my children and I are part of this great school

Our experiences with Tyrone Elementary have been excellent. Teachers are committed and willing to help the child achieve his or her personal best. Students are viewed as individuals not lumped into one category, and expected to all perform at the same level and pace. They give extra help to those who need it, and above level work for those who might excel a little quicker than others. Within the first few days of school my childrens teachers already knew their stengths and weaknesses, and were catering to their specific needs. We are very proud to be a part of such a great school.

Great School! Very 'parent friendly' attitudes from teachers and administration. Encourage parent involvement in all areas of education. Teachers are great and are concerned with the level of education their students are receiving.

This is the best school my children have attended and we move about every three years. The students and teachers work in an atmosphere that is safe, relaxed and conducive to learning.
