    Best school in the middle Georgia area. Teachers are all wonderful especially the teachers that my children have had. The principal cares about her students. It's like one big happy family. Definitely the school that any involved parent would want their children to attend! 5 stars Kings Chapel! Excellent school!

    The atmosphere of this school is one of care and concern for every child in the building. Learning is a priority for the students and faculty alike. There is an obvious pursuit of continued excellence.

    I am convinced you will not find a better school anywhere. The teachers and staff here go above and beyond and truly care for each student and their families. I have two school aged children who attend King's Chapel and have had experiences with three schools since my kids started school. It is not like there are a handful of great teachers that give this school a great reputation- they are all amazing teachers and people. This is an A+++ school!!!!!

    I now a current student at Perry High School and my brother who has been to Kings Chapel since he was 2 both went to this school. I love this school. The teachers here are wonderful and are willing to help your child succeed in their education. Even though the beloved principal of Kings Chapel transferred to my High School and another principal has taken over the school succeeds greatly. I still find myself going back to my 5th grade teachers and visiting them almost every friday. The faculty members are very nice and easy to get along with. The classes are fun and are hands on. There's plenty of child-parent interaction here from field days to plays. The afterschool activities are great too. Your kids have the benefit of being in Student Concil and Ecology club which I was in. Overall I highly recommend this school.

    I have had children at Kings Chapel Elementary for the last 5 years and I believe that this is the best Elementary School in the area by far! I only hope that Mr. Albritton will still be the principal at this school when my youngest (of 5) child starts at Kings Chapel in 2 years. I do believe that Mr. Albritton is the main reason that Kings Chapel Elementary is such a great school. He truly cares about each and every child that comes thru the doors and he seems to find teachers that have the same great attitude and outlook that he does. The children and their education are of the up most importance at Kings Chapel and you can tell this when you go to visit the school. I wish more schools were lucky enough to have a Principal and Staff as great as the one here at Kings Chapel Elementary!
