The only issue I have is that my child is an individual and is most definitely outside the box. The teacher here are not quite able, or capable of dealing w/ this amount of 'different'. I don't want my child to become an automaton. I want her to continue to be herself and to voice her emotion w/out be a striction to society.

This school is 'safe' to say that academic needs are met in a structured way. My children genuinely loved the continual praise given for their hard earned efforts. The team effort is a proud one for the faculty. If you like a strong sense of community, then look no further. Practice caution around 'cattiness'. As in any small, southern town, expect the nosey especially if you are from a big city. I praise the art teacher for putting her heart into her work. She uses her entire paycheck for supplies that the board of education is suppose to supply......her office is the trunk of her car......she travels to five schools in one week.

The instructional style at this school is 'tired'. There are teachers that will readily admit that they are too old to deal with the prepubescent behaviors of older elementary children.. Indidudualism is considered taboo.

Montrose Elementary is a wonderful school. Not only did I go there years ago but now my son is a student there. They have an excellent academic program. Montrose always has parent involvement and keeps parents informed. I also feel it is a very safe environment for my son.

My son is in Kindergarten at Montrose Elementary. I chose to move to this area specifically so we would be in the Montrose School Disctrict. I have been very impressed with the teachers, principal, and other leaders at this school. I know that they truly care about the children. The principal, Mrs. Hedge and secretary, Mrs. Holstein know and greet all the children by name. I receive updates and correspondence pertaining to my child from the teacher, Mrs. Rush. She is very encouraging for new kindergarteners! I am looking forward to my son's future at Montrose.

The top of one of the top elementary schools in Kanawha County. Is continually recognized as an 'exemplary school.' Small school environment and atmosphere in a nice neighborhood in South Charleston. Probably the best and safest public elementary school in Charleston.
