    Very unprofessional nothing like it used to be. The admins have no clue how to deal with parents or children. They need a principal.

    ALL but one of my children either have gone or is currently going to this school. I would not consider any other school for my kids to go to. The teachers are caring and loving. Even the ladies that work in the office are great. The principal is doing an excellent job and I just LOVE this school!

    I love North Augusta Elem because the school and the entire staff are a family and they all love what they do teaching our children. We are a family at North Augusta it takes an entire school to teach a child form every member with a PHD down to a GED.

    Our school has a more than 50 % poverty level in a state that is almost last on the list for educational success. However as a parent that moved here from one of the best rated school districts ( Ann Arbor MI) I have to say that every effort that is made at NAE far surpasses what happened in our old school district. The teachers community principal and parents all give 110 %. It is shown every day from the mentoring and Great Leaps Reading volunteer programs to the efforts made by the teachers and staff to not only teach but care and extend themselves in whatever capacity is needed to help each student. In our county where budget cuts furloughs and early release days have affected the resources provided and wages of the teachers our community has come together in a special way to care about each of our 720 children to ensure that they get as solid a foundation in all areas of academics as well as a stable environment that they can look forward to coming to each morning.

    I love the teachers and staff at the school. They really work hard to make my kindergartener feel welcome and eager to come to school each morning and they make me feel comfortable and happy to send my child to school because I know he is in good hands.

    The teachers and staff are wonderful and really get children into reading. They make the children want to learn.

    My son is currently enrolled in the 5th grade single gender program. It sounds like there may have been some issues with this program in the past but the school has worked out the kinks. He has a wonderful team of teachers and has enjoyed and thrived in the single gender environment. The school environment is very nuturing to children and welcoming to parents. The school is very connected to the North Augusta community and Dr. Burkhalter is an excellent principal.

    We relocated at the start of my son's 2nd grade year. The transition was so easy thanks to the wonderful staff. It has been a great school with a very friendly and caring atmosphere. Teachers have been wonderful. My kids love it and I have been pleased as well.

    Love love love this school. I feel safe my child is loved and reaffirmed every day. You can be as involved or not as you want. Dr. Burkhalter leads with skill.

    My Children both have gone through North Augusta Elementry but up until now 5th grade the school decided to try the same sex classes which in my opinion and experience was a nightmare. I have transfered my son to another school because of the disorder and misconduct in the class rooms. They stated that the scores were up but its not all about the scores. Children need a stable and controled enviornment to learn in. They also need to take in to consideration the well being of the children not just the scores.

    This a wonderful school with great teachers. If you need anything these teachers are there. We moved from out of state in the middle of the school year and my son made a very easy transition. The academic programs are top notch and I love how they make your child strive toward goals.

    My child had a wonderful experience coming through NAES. I would not hesitate recommending this school to anyone. You will not find a better assistant principal and faculty in the state. Parents are always warmly welcomed by the office staff and the faculty. This is by far the best elementary school in Area 2 and in Aiken County.

    Our faculty staff and parent involvement is what makes this school great! The involvement is awesome you could not find a better school anywhere!
