    Malta is a great school with great staff families and students that are all working together for the best interest of the students!

    We recently moved to the DeKalb school district and my six year old is now attending Malta Elementary. This school is absolutely the best all ways around! They have great student teacher ratios a hands-on principle and fantastic curriculum. The kids are close-knit due to lower population which works out well for my daughter. My daughter has improved her reading and math skills significantly since attending this school. I would recommend this school to anyone!

    My two grandsons go to malta elementary it is a small school with very good teachers and the classes are not as crowed as the scholls in dekalb so the kids get more one on one with the teacher. my one grandson needs extra attention and help with some things and they are great about it. i think if he was in a bigger school he would not be so lucky. that is why i love malta elementary .
