My daughter has attended this school since kindergarten. She is now in second grade. We have never had a problem with any teachers or students. My whole family attended this school. Each one of them had a great experience and education. Can't say one bad word about AES. Great school,teachers,staff and students.

My children have been bullied and assaulted on school property, this has been going on for the last 5 years, nothing has been done. We have taken measures to stop our children from riding bus # 38, and had problems at every level of administration. The authority figures will not do anything to adhere to any anti bullying policies or actual assaults. Principal and vice principle have denied these events in a meeting with a superior from the county board of education present. They said they never contacted us about this event, when in fact I called immediately and started asking to speak to someone. They told us that they questioned other children on the bus and the kid himself had admitted to what happened. In one of the meetings they even had a sheriff from the county present and still deny it happened. They lied about the events and they tricked the kids into saying what they wanted to hear. One time my child was falsely accused of stealing a basketball, another child admitted to it when the ball was found at another house several months later. The school allowed my child to be questioned by police without our knowledge or consent. Another parent was there saw it and called us.

I agree with previous review about the teacher. The principal nor administration will do anything about her. My children constantly complain about being bored because they finish their work quickly and easily. We have had a few great teachers who go the extra mile but many are just doing the minimum required. I want my children challenged not simply passing.

First off if you look at the reviews most are from teachers (brown nosers) Most important if your child is going into the second grade find out who her teacher is and do your own background check with other parents who there child was in this particular teachers class she has been a teacher for over 40 years and from what I could gather from speaking with serveral parents they Do NOT LIKE HER she is very mean to the kids makes some of them cry, spends most of her time in the class on her cell phone me personally had to have a meeting with the Principal and teacher because my child keep coming home crying saying that Miss T. made her cry again by being mean to her. I have spoke with the board of education and obviously nothing was done. I tried to move my child but the county would not approve it only reason I could come up with is they did not want any bad publicity about there school and teacher.

We switched from a private school to AES, for financial reasons, when my daughter was in 4th grade. There was a period of adjustment as we got used to seeing 1st graders with mohawks and gages in their ears, kids swearing and disrespecting their teachers and several other things. AES is a poor school, not in quality, but that it has a high percentage of poor families, which shows in the behavior and dress of the kids. Also, they don't encourage the parents to be involved in the way that they did at private school, but I don't think that is just AES, I think that is all public schools around here. That is the bad part. The good part is what makes it all worth it! The teachers are wonderful! They really seem to care and go the extra step. They understand the situation that these kids are in and love them and support them to the best of their ability. I also like that there are alot of different ethnic groups and there doesn't seem to be any sort of racial tension that I've noticed. I with they were a little more strict in the "treat adults with respect" catagory, but all in all I am pleased. When the kids feed into the middle school, the AES kids are at the TOP!

AES is a school where student's needs are met first. Our students drive instruction. We care about them as if they are our own children.

AES is the best school because the teachers really love their students and want what is best for them. Therefore, the students seem to love being here and are willing to work hard.

I work at Archdale and wouldn't be anywhere else. Mrs. Smith, the Principal, cares about each and every one of our students and the staff, too. When I have to be out, or away on school vacations & summer break, I 'miss' my AES Family. I truly feel that I am 'home'. The staff members are friends and it is reflected in the way we all help each other. The students and their families are a big part of my life. They make a tremendous difference in my life.

Archdale Elementary School is a wonderful place for children to grow up! My son has attended this school since Kindergarten. Every year, he has had teachers who care about him, not only academically, but personally. The teachers here really care about their students. Testing is not what drives instruction. Giving the children an education that they value is top priority. Teachers want children to love to learn. All that being said, the test scores are great because the children want to succeed, not only to please their teachers and parents, but to please themselves.

Lynn Smith, our Principal, is the best thing to happen to our school! She loves the kids and knows them all by name. She gives the staff full support and 'trusts' us to do our job as professionals. Wea are like a great big family at Archdale, and each student knows and feels that we are truly glad for them to be at our school.
