    The professionals who work at this school really love the children. They have a great understanding of children's needs and use many creative methods for teaching. The principal is absolutely wonderful and really listens to parents. We've been pleased and will miss them all next year.

    This school is amazing. They are all about education. They keep the work for my son sharp exciting and also fun. He loves his Humpty and is very proud when he achieves his daily goal of NOT moving it. He also responds very positively to the teachers comments on his home work. The smiles stars and yes a not listening every once in awhile.

    I have had an older child go through OCPS and now have one in 1st grade. We have always had wonderful teachers and the school is a comfortable place for children to be. My children love their school and we are proud to have them go there. The entire staff strives to have excellence in their school and it shows.

    My son comes home from school excited every afternoon. He loves the school and his teachers. I know that the he's comfortable there and that he's learning. I must admit that I am a little over protective of my son but I never worry about him at OCPS. The students and staff at Oglethorpe County Primary School are incredible!

    I love Oglethorpe Primary School because It has built up my sons confidence and enthusiasm. Last year moving from another county my son was to start 1st grade. After three weeks into the new year the principle guidance counselor academic counselor kindergarten teacher and 1st grade teacher along with my husband and I decided it would be best if my son repeated kindergarten. Many tears between my son and myself It was the best decision ever. My son looks forward to school and enjoys doing his work nighly. OCPS helped so much during this transition that I can only think highly of this school. And if the school had not notice the struggles with my son it would have been a tough year for our family.

    The faculty and staff at the primary school are all excellent. You can tell that these teachers really love to teach and be around children. All of the teachers I have ever been around have always gone above and beyond taking care of all the needs of their studnets.

    My children have gotten an amazing education at OCPS! The teachers are fabulous and really care about the job they are doing. I have 3 children in this school and every teacher we have had has been great. Every staff member we encounter is happy and polite. This is a terrific school and my kids could not get a better education anywhere!
