My daughter Aaliyah has attended County Line Elementary since Kindergarden, she is now in the 5th grade. I think it is one of the Top Elementary schools in Georgia. The Teachers are the most caring,loving and concerned professional leaders out there. If I could increase their pay I would make that happen. They Love their jobs, you can see it and feel it. I wouldn't change anything from what my daughter has experienced, it's the best start of an education that one could every asked for.

My children Cassidy, and Courtney LOVE County Line. Courtney has made many good friends there. She constantly talks about Mrs. Sales. Her preschool teacher. Cassidy talks about her teacher. Mrs. Boyd, she said how she makes learning Extra Fun! This school is very amazing in learning. But the food choices are very poor. But ayways GO CRITTERS

County Line Elementary is fabulous! Both of my children have attended and they have had such a wonderful educational experience. I also have the honor of working at the school, so I know what a qualified, caring, and dedicated staff we have. As a parent, I couldn't be more pleased!

County Line is the best school! They have the most caring teachers I have ever known a school to have. The principal is always very involved in every activity at County Line. I had never known a principal as caring as Dr. Johnson, too bad he's retiring this year. We will miss him very much! I can not emphasize enough what a great school County Line is and its because of the great staff and the great leadership. I hope it countinues this way with the new principal.

My son is in the second grade at County Line. This has been a wonderful school and we've had great teachers. The principal, Dr. Johnson seems very involved in the day to day operations and we always see him helping with dropoff or pickup and always at the events. The office staff are friendly and very helpful. My son loves going to school which is the true indicator of a successful school atmosphere. My biggest complaint, which is geared toward the district and not CLES specifically, is the 'new math' and the elimination of the advanced math classes. I also wish spanish language classes were offered. I do not think the test scores are a reflection of the true nature of this school. Our experience has been wonderfully positive.

My son is currently in kindergarten and loves it. The school library and his music class are his favorites. The communication between parents and teachers via folders and e-mail is wonderful! The extra help he is receiving with his letter recognition is greatly appreciated. The school is very clean and beautiful!

I am the parent of twin boys and both were put into kindergarten this year at this school. One of my twins has Autism and was withdrawn from school by me. His typically developing brother has had a wonderful experience and wonderful teachers. Special education is severely insufficient.

My sons began attending County Line this year, and we've been thrilled. Their teachers are incredible, and Dr. Johnson leads the school with passion and determination. We couldn't have hand-picked a better elementary school!

This has not only been a great school for my children. It is also an excellent place to work at. The teachers are the best in the county and the rest of the staff are wonderful.

County Line is the best! Our daughter is going into 1st grade and she loves going. When she started pre-k it was awful to get her to go- Dr. Johnson, her teachers and counselor really helped us-they did not give up-other schools would have-Our daughter is one of the top readers and is above average in her class.-she is doing so well. I can not even think about sending my children to another school. CLES takes great pride and is a presidential school-they make learning fun and care about the kids actually learning! all the students love Dr. Johnson and staff.
