    Regretfully my child has been attending this school for two years. I agree with the comments submitted regarding the absentee principal - I have had complaints about one of my child's teachers and sent emails directly to the principal and she never had the common decency to even acknowledge receipt of the complaint and allowed the teacher to handle the issue herself. This particular teacher is beyond unprofessional in the way she interacts with parents and handles the children in her classroom. I have been told by a number of her students that she yells a lot in class and falls far behind in the curriculum throughout the year and then attempts to cram all of the information into a short period of time. I am also apalled that the students are allowed to take a test more than once until they get a score that looks better for the teacher and that is the one sent home. If you are a parent who cares about your child getting a good education by teachers that truly care about your children this is not the place for you!

    My second child just started at EES. I have nothing but positive remarks about the school. Also I have to disagree with a couple of the comments regarding the prinipal. She has always returned my call and appeared most concerned about her students. The teachers are wonderful in every grade.

    I have had no good experience at the elementary school. The principle doesn't care about her students or her parents. Never returns phone calls and never listens if you can actually get to talk to her. The budget is her only concern.

    I agree with the other parent the principle is definately not 'hands on' for parents..Pity..They constantly insist on 'getting parents involved yet principle is rarily available and that goes for each school in district four.

    My child has a very special teacher this year. She has helped my child (and other children) learn to love English. She has introduced a variety of cultures to these children as well. My child comes home every day just filled with new knowledge from her class. This teacher has taught my son that it is okay for a young man to do well in English. She also has been a great help to him in reading. I have been so pleased with the way this teacher involves the students and makes them excited about learning. This teacher's name is Mrs. Girgis. I can only hope that my son and my girls can have more teachers like this one. Mrs. Girgis poitned out to me (and I agree) that the other teachers she teaches with are excellent teachers as well. Edisto Elementary is lucky to have such jewels as these!

    Its really bad when the Principal won't return your calls and is never in the office.
