Run, run very fast away from this school. My child has been bullied by a child who is supposed to have ADHD and they do nothing about it. He has pushed her and has threatend to choke her and she goes to the office to report it and they tell her she needs to handle things differently when she responds to him. They let this child get away with anything he wants to and the consequences don't phase him. He disrupts class and screams and yells and the teacher let him get away with it. They basically made my daughter feel like everything is her fault. when she complains. Since they do not want to handle this I had to file a police report because he will not stop the threats and the pushing. I have called the district at Fort Stewart twice to complain about the bullying. Finally an investigation is going on now because nothing was done to protect my daughter. I don't think the teachers want to deal with him or they are afraid of his breaking his rights as a child with a 504 plan or with some time of behavior disability. My daughter has her rights also, and that is her right to go to school in a safe environment,

You know when I was student of this school, I hated it there. Why, well it just sucked. The school was not really what I ever wanted in a school for the most part. Being the first generation when they turned it to a Middle/Elementary was the worst. The teachers you could obviously tell did not teach for the love of it but just to have money. I had a very sexist math teacher and all I can say is at all costs avoid this and go to a public school. The lot of kids you go to school with are all trying to fit in and really it is not a great environment since you do not have much of a chance to meet other people outside of the military life. In a sense you are not prepared to for people in general. With that being said them adding a middle school was the worst because by the time you hit High School you are basically screwed. It just takes away from the pre-experience that everyone should really experience. Also a real middle school will give more opportunities for you, although unless you stay living in that state for middle school through high school then it is all fine but on other terms just avoid it. Well that is my review, it was not all horrible but it was just alright.

The kids at this school are out of control. The principal is a nice guy, but lacks a backbone. Policies at the school constantly change because somones parent complained and didn't like it. If the school would spent half as much time on academics as they do trying to enforce the dress code this school would be off the charts in testing scores!

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
