    With three grandchildren successfully attending and enjoying their participation in the programs at this school I can confidently state my satisfaction the excellent way in which the business of educating children is handled at this school.

    Very involved parent community with committed leadership. However this school encourages redshirting which I completely disagree with.

    We came from a private school in Atlanta and Garrison Mill is a public/private school. We have had an amazing year so far and the teachers are wonderful. The new principal is truly the best! It is a wonderful school.

    When we were moving here from out of state we inquired about the schools. We found GM to have all the best qualities a parent would want for your child. We have five children five different teachers. Our family situation is unique in that we foster children and have one of our own. GM has been very catering to the childrens needs and encourages them with compassion. Thanks to all the staff you really make GM special.

    Great teachers and a small school in northeast Cobb. Less than 700 students teachers love teaching here (and that says a lot) my children love school.

    Both of my children are grown and graduated from college. My son is a successful journalist and my daughter is a microbiologist who works in a research lab. It is my belief that attitude toward school and learning begins in the earliest years. The nurturing environment that has always existed at Garrison Mill laid a strong foundation for personal success and achievement for both of my children. It is evident that this legacy continues even today.

    My daughter is currently in fifth grade and has yet to have even an average teacher. She has loved them all and still visits her 'old' teachers frequently. The faculty is great. The staff is also excellent. The school is clean and the staff from top to bottom cares about the students - heck even the food is surprisingly good for a school cafeteria!
