    The teachers overall are great. My son's teacher worked very well with him. However I noticed there is alot of kids there that misbehave and when you bring it to the prinicipals attention. She does very little to solve the problem. She does a poor job to stop the bullying and she has the mind set that the vicitim is causing the problems. She is very one sided person. Overall the only thing needs improving is the Principal...

    My students receive a great education here. The teachers are amazing! The principal however isn't. She has a bad attitude and dresses very inappropriately for an elementary school. I don't even wear short dresses with 6" heeled knee high boots in front of my children. I cant believe the city would allow a principal to dress that way. I am not the only concerned parent regarding this principal. The majority of my neighborhood has moved their children out of this school and into charter schools because of her.

    I sent my daughter to this school after our other options didn't work out for us. I was apprehensive about sending her to GH but we had to send her anyway. Well I must say I was very happy for a lot of the year until the last few months when my daughter started telling me about how the kids misbehaved and were treating her an others. I think the academics are fine especially science. Her reading skills grew as they should as did her math. The teachers are nice and I was so happy about that. My kids will not be attending this school anymore though because overall the behavior of the kids (and my daughter is a first grader!) is not an example I want my kids to follow or have to put up with.

    I have dealt with this school for 5 years and all the teachers my kids have had have been wonderful though the principal is a whole other thing there is little to no communication skills

    e have been with this school for several years now. The academics are wonderful. The teachers are great towards the students. However there is a lack of comminication between teachers and parents. It seems like this issue is a work in progress. We wouldn't have sent our child to anyother school.

    Though we live in Galloway we are in the Columbus school district. I was hesitant about this at first but Georgian Heights has been wonderful. My child has excelled at many subjects and now has a passion about other subjects as well. They focus on Math & Science even send the kids to Science Camp. But the focus is on the child's interest as well. The have computers music chess club math clubs and even things like oragami. My child loves it.

    I have 2 children at Georgian Heights Alternative Elem. School. The level of accademic quality programs appears to be high however I do not believe that communication between the teachers at the school and the parents is good enough. I have had several issues this year in particular with the way certain situations were handled by individual teachers.

    This is my daughter's 2nd year at Georgian Heights. She has really improved her reading skills but I must admit that I believe that is mostly due to our diligence in encouraging her to read daily. Her teacher in 3rd grade was excellent - this is the start of 2nd quarter so I am not entirely sure about her 4th grade teacher yet. She doesn't seem very communicative at this point. There are not many extra-curricular activities to choose from. I am not impressed with the class size. I think that there are too many students in my daughter's class which could end up being detrimental to her academic achievement. The music program is good. I wish there were more opportunities for more one-on-one help when it's needed. Overall I am satisfied with GH.
