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 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.
