    I was very disapointed when my son in the C-CETS class had A/B honor roll for the year perfect attendence and a great attitude at school and church. He also made student of the month. with all due rspect this to me was a miricle in the making yet when the report cards came it never was specified whether he was o was not promoed or retained. how do I find out ? my son was very hurt or/and disapointed.he's a loving child who respected and likes pleasing me and his great teacher's.......often a child with some disorders'grow in areas therefor I believe every student should be reconized in the abilities that make them stand out....( least restrictive inviorment) He will miss his fourTH grade teacher as she will be moving. I just pray he passed to the fifth grade due to his acedemic achievments.......BLESSINGS

    I have had two children attend Evans Elementary. Both had excellent teachers and experiences at school! It is such a family oriented atmosphere at Evans! Whenever I visited the schools I was welcomed with pleasant greetings from the administration teachers school nurse and custodians! My children were greeted by name by most adults! I think there must be some other issues from the poster that had such a negative experience. Maybe homeschooling would suit her child better.

    My oldest daughter attended this school and is now in middle school. The teachers were very professional and made every effort to accommodate all students. She has made the transition and is doing extremely well. I have other children in the elementary school and have had equal results. Successful learning begins and ends at home and no school can overcome poor parenting!

    It is unfortunate that a person would say such things about Evans Elementary. The teachers students parents leaders and community partners work together to make that little school have a huge impact on the students they serve. Just recently the school went through an evaluation process that validated that Evans Elementary is one of the best schools in Georgia. The teachers take pride in their school and they are very protective of their students parents and leaders so I am not sure about the motive of the person that has made such negative comments about the EES administrators and teachers. Anyone reading this post should defiantly take the opportunity to walk into Evans Elementary to see for themselves. It is truly a neighborhood school that partners with each person that walks through the door.

    I can only comment on my family's experience at this school from our Pre-K-4th grade years and I must say that I absolutely disagree with the previous posting. We have had some issues come up at EES and each time my kids and I were treated with respect and the matters were resolved in a professional manner by all of the staff involved to include the principal. I am sure everyone would agree that it doesn't get any more personal than when our kids are involved so any bad experience may be magnified. I pray your situation gets better. God bless!

    I am dissatisfied with the school and staff. My daughter started out Kindergarten in trouble constantly. her first few months of school were nothing but bad for her. The principal and the assistant principal had a lot to do with that also. Instead of listening and taking the right road they chose to suspend and out of school suspend a five year old. Turns out after spending many days in a row at the school a change of teachers was the best thing for her. The principal tried to talk me out of it several times. My child since they are no longer being bullied by a staff members child has gone leaps and bounds in just a few short months. This school is becoming a joke. it is very true of the review below that they are lacking in common sense and good judgment and the personal relationships are leading decisions made by the principals and teachers. I do not think that these staff members children should be allowed to attend the school that the parent works for. It makes it to hard for other kids to get fair treatment. the principals need to be removed and replaced with more professional people who can do the job CORRECTLY! It is hard to have any faith in these people.

    Both of my children attended Evans Elementary. They were well preprared for middle school both academically and socially. The teachers and administration care deeply about the students and want each of them to perform at their absolute best. I can't say enough about how wonderful this school is. Great job! Keep up the excellent work.

    Great school. The teachers are the best that I have ever dealt with. Extremely helpful and caring staff in this school. My daughter has developed extremely well in just over a year of attendance.
