I have a child in Matthews and had another one there in the past (moved up in grades). I find that having a new Principal has been very helpful and encouraging. My child LOVES going to school here and feels challenged each day. I like that the teachers all seem to be very compassionate and down to earth on each visit I have made to the school. The front office staff is a little challenging at times, but I don't have to deal with them too much. Plus they aren't the one's my child has to learn from so this is okay for now.

This school has a great principal. He encourages parents to be involved and is kind and respectful to the students.

This school has some phenominal teachers, however, the school atmosphere lacks sincerity & warmth. The principal does not welcome all parents and has lost or forced out excellent teachers. There have been beautiful physical changes to the building but overall I am disappointed in this principal.
