My family moved and my son had to change schools after Christmas break. He ended up liking this school better than the one he was attending. Mrs. Hall was amazing and patient with him, as he needed it , because of the transition. Now, he is in Mrs. Williams, second grade class this year, and he has enjoyed it so far this year! My youngest son has just started in K-5 in Mrs. O'Bryan/Mrs. Williams class. He has never been to any preschool or daycare, and the teachers have been really great, understanding, and patient which my son really needs to adjust!!! They knew who I was when I first started picking him up in the car line even when he had just started going to 1st grade!!! The front office personnel are very nice and helpful!!! This school has been amazing!!!!

I came here in the 3rd grade (now i am in 7th) and i could only read on a preschool level but by the end of 5th i could read at a 10th grade level now i read at a 12th grade and up level. I loved this school and would go back if I could :)

This school gets my vote as a wonderful school. Granted my son got off to a rocky start in K5 and I was not impressed with his first K5 teacher. However, I had him moved and loved his second teacher. Then first grade came around he had problems sitting still and focusing. Ms. Bufford did everything she could possible do for my son. She tried different teaching techniques on my my son. She never gave up on him. Always kept me informed on his progress. My son was diagnosed as ADHD in the second half of the school year. Which medication did help him a lot. But, Ms. Bufford was a big blessing to us. She is one teacher who did not write my son off. She did everything a teacher could do and more. Love You Mrs. Bufford! God Bless.

I believe that this school is centered around strong moral values. The quality of the academic programs is remarkable. The extra activities available by the school is great.

My experience with Ellen Woodside has been a wonderful one. We came here from Florida in Jan 07, and my son was able to adjust extremely fast with the help of his teachers. I find that the school is extremely organized and everyone is so polite. I want to thank Mrs. Campbell for making my son's first six months of school here a memorable one.
