NOT IMPRESSED!!!. It does not seem as though the principle is completely qualified for her job. Maybe she has the proper credentials but it's a well known fact in the area that the only reason she has her job is because her husband and father-in-law are on the school board for the county. Instead of paying qualified special needs teachers ..teachers aids were being used. Where did all that $$ go that was for paying those teachers? I feel as though most of the teachers really care and TRY to do their job but come to dead ends in helping children once it reaches the principle. There are MANY families in the area that have started home schooling their children or have enrolled their child in a different school altogether as I have. On the other hand if your child is a perfectly behaved kid that has no energy to burn and ALWAYS does what they are told and doesn't ask questions about what they are learning and keeps their mouth shut then you shouldn't have any problems with this school. Also the High School is NOT somewhere I would send my child. There has been reports of teachers selling and doing drugs at school only to get a 4 weeks suspension WITH pay.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this school. I am a long time supporter of Homeschool environments. When I knew my special needs daughter would need school resources when we moved. I checked this school out. They went out of their way to make time for us on each visit. They took the time for tours, to answer questions, and allow us to get to know who they were. This school is one of the best public school environments I have seen. They are a community that supports their students. They are very welcoming and everyone is very kind. I greatly appreciate everything they have done for my daughter. The transition was very simple. The accommodations for my daughter surpassed my expectations. My daughter has advanced in ways that were truly unexpected. I am so grateful to everyone at Cloudland Elementary.

CES is a wonderful place for children! The teachers are knowledgable and really care about the children. The students all seem happy and have a lot of interesting activities. Carter Cares has helped many students to do better in the classroom. More parents could be involved in helping with activities and tutoring. Anyone would be lucky to have their child in this school.

Cloudland has alot of great qualities, but there is always room for improvement. Some teachers are great and go out of their way. Others seem to be there out of obligation. There needs to be more extra curricular activities that do not include the youth club sports programs. There needs to be more art, science, social studies, and maybe some sort of personal/community development programs. Reading and math are great, but you do more in life than read and add. There needs to be more parent involvement/volunteers. Education starts at home. The kids are EXCELLENT and need more opportunities for their life skills that they are learning now. Advanced placement would be a GREAT benefit for those more advanced students.
