    I absolutely love CJ Hicks! My daughter has been here for 2 years and the teaching has been exceptional both years. My daughter makes great grades and meets or exceeds in all of her state tests and enjoys going to school everyday. Office staff is always friendly and informational. Great school

    My seven-year old son was recently sent home (by the substitute) on the bus instead of going to the Boy's and Girl's Club. My son informed the sub that he was supposed to go the the B&G Club but she stated she "didn't believe him" and told him to go home on the bus...We have yet to receive a phone call email letter etc. from the principal...We have filed a complaint with the Office of Support Services regarding the incident; however have yet to hear back from them...The principal showed a lack of concern and was extremely arrogant to our concern. He even made a comment (in a joking/laughing matter) to my husband and I that he needed to leave so his daughter wouldn't be stranded. Thankfully my neighbor (that we know and trust) just happened to be home and saw our son... There are certain things you cannot brush under the rug...And the safety of children is one of them...

    This is our first year at Hicks. We recently changed school districts from Dekalb County. Hicks has a very strong academic program that puts the students first. I am very happy with their teaching style and my child has done very well so far this year. They also do a very nice job of influencing parent involvement and I think that will go a long way in the school's success. Very strong leadership and appropriate level of academics.
