I am not pleased with the leadership of Ms. Payne, the principle. She has structured the school into a "quiet zone" which does not allow the students the opportunity to express themselves. Would not recommend this school or principle.

I was not pleased at all with this school the Principle was not very professional I had to tell her about her professionalism several times, I had to sit in the lunch room during breakfast because someone is yelling over a mike at the kids like a boot camp , if they breath they will say something to them. One child was denied his breakfast because he was doing his work and had more than enough time to eat , iI did not like that at all my son will not be returning to this school I do not like this school or the way they communicate with parents , My son didn't eve have a graduation very disappointing

I was a student of Alcy Elementary many years ago and my children have all been students there as well, my youngest is now a 3rd grade student in Mrs. Rhodes' class and I am proud to say that the staff and parents at Alcy are still doing a wonderful job. I also hope to become more involved through volunteer work this year.

The principal is always available to the parents and students. The teachers are professional and courteous. They have the students at heart. I really enjoy my daughter attending Alcy Elem. I went there as a child. I wanted my child to attend there. I plan to end up teaching there one day myself. I LOVE ALCY!
