The teacher student ratio is great. My child learns alot from his teachers. They are very informative with the parents.
It is a nice school with a good staff & falculty. They care about the children & their welfare.
At DES we have a great staff and wonderful students. Our school supports each other and we have that family feeling. We are all here to make a difference in the lives of our students.
Daughtry works with parents to understand how to help their child learn best. The school's open door policy makes it easy for parents to visit and to meet with teachers during their planning. There is a feeling that EVERYONE there will learn. The motto of 'Everyone here will learn' is extended beyond the classroom into the community.
DES has a Great staff & Wonderful teachers who care about my daughters education. I have been very pleased with the school I have gotten involved with School Council & PTO and make it a point to know how my child is doing. The staff and teachers are very good at responding to my questions and concerns quickly. My daughter is in 3rd grade and has the opportunity to enjoy Chorus Drama (Plays) and TAG.
This school provides a safe nuturing environment for students to learn. It has recieved the Governor's Bronze Award for student achievement. The teachers spend many hours planning lessons that will support the Georgia Performance Standards and prepare students for the next grade level.
I've always had great experiences with the teachers however the leadership and the afterschool program are terrible. Twice my child was sent home alone on the bus instead of going to afterschool. When confronted the afterschool program advised it was not their responsibility to ensure my child arrived in afterschool and refused to change their procedures to ensure my childs safety. Going to principle and superintendant didn't help. Also leadership makes decisions to sweep very important issues regarding childrens safety under the rug to benifit themselves. I have never seen them make a single decision based on the well being of the students. Terrible leadership.
I have had children in Daughtry since the school opened - Mrs Barlow is the best principal she is a very caring person with great morals and leadership ability. We have had great teachers - and the ladies in the office are all very nice and professional.
My daughter is in the 4th grade and this is her 3rd year at Daughtry. I have been very impressed with both the teachers and administration at this school. I have found the teachers as well as the principal to be very approachable. The afterschool program here is wonderful also. They help with homework when necessary and ensure that it is completed before other activities are allowed. The school also provides volunteer opportunities for parents who wish to stay involved. Both my daughter and I have been very pleased with Daughtry Elementary.
i think your school is a wonderful place to send a child to learn and to have fun. the teachers are wonderful teachers. thanks terisa davis
I concur with this evaluation. We removing my grandson and home schooling next year. There are a few outstanding teachers Ms Jones Ms. Brooks and MS. Anderson but they are hampered by very poor leadership.
I have 2 childern in the school.My oldest is going into 5th grade and she is doing great.My son how ever is going to 3rd grade because he has been place for the second year in a row. He has been classified as special ed because he has ADHD and the last 2 teachers he had wouldn't take the time with him that he needs. Just be careful that you keep an eye on the teachers your childern have because some of them don't care aboput the students or communicate with the parents.
We've had ups and downs with the school. Theres a mix of really great amazing teachers with some they hurried up and hired before the school opened. The only down fall is most the great teachers leave after a year or two because of the school admin. I had both my children there till we moved. During the 3 years they were there we had a great teacher that thought my son to read in 1 week.
This school is a wonderful place to be. I am happy to have my daughter at this school. She learned a lot in K-5 and I'm already seeing that she is learining a lot in just the first week of 1st. Keep up the good work teachers and faculty.
I disagree my son is in the 3rd grade and could not read do math. I moved him to Daughtry and in 7 months I see a big different in him. He is reading now can do math. I am soo thankful for this school
Terrible School for special ed students. It might be okay for regular ed but the special ed department is under staffed and highly untrained. If you have a special ed student go to another county. The coordinator is of no help and the school employees don't know what they're doing.
