    My daughter was in the Pre-K program at Sedgefield Elementary during the 2011-2012 school year. I have to admit that I was worried about it being a Title I School but I was completely won over. Her two teachers were so caring organized and great educators. My daughter learned so much acedemically and socially in such a short amount of time. The teachers were friendly and open to communication. Even the people in the front office were friendly and knew me by name. This isn't my home school and now my child is in a non-title 1 school for Kindergarten. However I do have to say that my daughter's Sedgefield pre-K teachers were warmer and more nurturing than my daughter's current teachers are at her current school. I miss Sedgefield and I thank them for everything they did for my child during her first year in school. Thanks Sedgefield! My daughter was definitely ready for Kindergarten with the help of your wonderful teachers and staff!

    Love Mrs.Bah and Mrs Craig! They were fantastic with my girls. Never had any negative issues with the school.

    I feel like I am constantly telling the teachers what they should do they have not vision and do not know if they are coming or going in that place. The only organized person is Ms. WIliams after that God Help you. They have not sense of security or respect for the children they ar focused on School Uniforms. More over it seems incredibly stupid to make a Title One school in to a uniform school were over 80% of the kids can not afford to buy lunch why on Earth would you then force their families to buy Uniforms without providing at least 5 sets for each child. You are talking about poor people here! Further if the child does not have the proper uniform on they are forced to leave class. Its some mess!!! If you can get your kids out of this school do it fast...

    This school is terrible the teachers at this school dont care about kids. All they want is to kick kids out of class and thats it. there is no help for kids with learning problems. Ms Dunning the 3rd grade teacher is bias she doesnt help kids that need help. She judges the kids instead of paying attention to there needs. sedgefield is a terrible school and terrible teachers DON'T let your kids go here. i removed all my kids from this school!

    I would have to agree with the parent that posted the comment for December 27th 2007. There is a lack of communication with the administration of this school and the parents. They are very unorganized and lack constructive ways to manage diciplinary problems.

    I am so dissapointed with the education the administration and everything about this school. There does not seem to be any communication between parents and staff and the school is very unorganized. I am putting my child in private school next year so that she does not have to endure another year here
