This is a fantastic elementary school. Starting with an active principal and caring office staff, it goes to wonderful teachers. We watched our child grow and develop through various grades by a focused, caring and challenging teaching group. They have been consistent throughout our time there.

The teachers working with my grandson have been supportive, firm willing to motivate him. Since he has ADHD, he has problems with focusing and staying on target. They have helped him and willing to provide information to the professionals who have been working with him. They have been available for me--custody grandparent.

I love Arnold Mill and the incredible staff. I have been a parent and volunteer here for almost 9 years and it gets better every year. Our new principals are AMAZING and everyone at the school is terrific and dedicated to the children. So glad my children call this their school and i look forward to a few more great years until my youngest moves to Middle School.

We love Arnold Mill Elementary School! AMES is fortnuate enough to have a very forward-thinking and passionate principal, Mrs. Kerry Martin. The PTA has lots of parent support. There is never a shortage of fun and exciting events and community outreach and involvement. And most of all, the teachers are top-notch. Arnold Mill is a wonderful school with a great balance of education-focus AND community support.

The reason I think so highly of Arnold Mill is because my daughter gets up every morning excited to go to school. My daughter has had the privlege of being taught by some of the finest teachers. I could not have asked for a better experience in public education than Arnold Mill.

Arnold Mill Elementary is the best school ever due to it's commitment to excellence to academics. Not only are the teachers commited to teaching they are also nuturing to both the student and the parents. We are one big happy family at AME. They are active in the community and individual lives. I consider AME to be equal to alot of Christian schools in the Atlanta area, but without the huge price tag. Thanks to all the parents, teachers, and students who work together everyday to make it a school of excellence to the community of Woodstock.

I have two children at 'The Mill'. It is our first year with this school and we could not be more pleased. The teachers and staff have helped my boys be the best that they can be with there academics and social skills. I love how the teachers have such good communication with parents. We feel that we are in the loop and are a part of our boys education. I am excited for my boys to continue there education in this proactive, positive and nurturing environment.

I love coming to the school to have lunch with my grand daughter or participate in the book fair or get to be the 'special reader'! I get to observe the caring and genuine interested and the welfare of each child, these amazing teachers & staff really are! When a child 'LOVES' going to school... that's says it all! Thanks Arnold Mill for the great job!!

I volunteer and visit as much as I can and everyone I meet is so friendly. My daughter loves it and my son can't wait to get there next school year. It is amazing to find teachers, students, staff and a school you love.

My children have attended Arnold Mill since Kindergarten. My oldest is graduating from Arnold Mill this year, and my youngest next year. Being at this school has been an incredible experience for our family. The teachers are amazing and have truly enjoyed not only educating my children, but watching them as they have grown up.

I have two sons that attend Arnold Mill. One in 5th grade and one in 2nd. The school has been great and the administration has been very helpful. They have always met or exceeded my needs when it comes to helping my children in the classroom. Thanks for all the great teachers, parents, PTA and support staff. We love AME!

I couldn't imagine having my children in any other school. Our oldest son had been at Arnold Mill for 2 years before we moved out of state. After 1 year at another school is was obvious that our kids needed to be back at Arnold Mill. We are so happy to be back and we have some great teachers this year!
