    This is a fabulous school! Teachers are the best in the county. The PTA is also the best. They donate a lot of their time and efforts in coordinating activities special events etc. for students and staff. One negative is the counselor. She seems to not do much around the school. I had an encounter with her where she was very negative with me and my son. I think her name is Ms. Hall. I have seen her walk around being in everyone's business instead of working with children. We could use a better counselor. I gave Principal Leadership one star for the old principal. She was never seen outside of her office. Not very social. Very excited to have a new principal!!!

    My daughter went here for 3 years this is the best school she has been to in 7 years. The staff does care all of them. My child is now terrified to go to the new middle school in the area . Because she does not feel safe. She is in Sp Ed. I wish we had a MT. Rd. Middle School. This is by far the best school in Cherokee County..

    Mountain road Elem. is truly a school that has staff that cares for its children! Mountain road has a wonderful special Ed program that is dedicated to caring for these special students in need. My son has thrived and has developed a passion for reading helping others and a bright outlook for what he may become in the future.

    Excellent school with a very involved PTA. It is smaller than other elementary schools which gives it a private school feel with better individual attention per child. I have two children at Mountain Road and they have thrived here.

    My younger son has learning disabilities and will be going to this school this year. We had Kindergarten transition meeting and there were 5 professionals in the room to discuss a plan for my child. Very impressed. My older daughter has behavioral problems but through the support of the school counselor and her Kindergarten and Grade 1 teachers she is improving each year. In spite of her inability to concentrate she scored well on the Grade 1 standardized test and is very passionate about education. Teachers are the most valuable asset of this school. The school itself is safe and nurturing.

    I am a proud parent of 4 children that have attended this school from the start of their school career. I cannot praise these teachers enough. every one of them will be remembered for their kindness. Thank you Mountain Road teachers keep up the good works in all your students to come.

    This school is unbelievable. I went to 10 different schools by the fifth grade as a child. The amount of support my child has received I believe would only be found in a private school. They actually assigned a team of people to help my child. He has a high I Q which was confusing to them but yet he was having problem learning. The have spend 2 years of diligent effort with different experts to help him. I think that says it all. He is doing better. They have an excellent handle on the children s conduct. In six years I have not heard of one fight in the school and I have sent 3 children there.

    We have attended this school for 2 years. The parents are storngly involved and encouraged to be a part of the schools environment. With reading days and special PTA events. Parents are encouraged to visit the class room and teachers are great at communication

    We have been in this district for the past 8 years. Our oldest in now a junior in high school and is attending honors and AP classes. My two youngest children have been in Mountain Road since Kindergarten and have received a great education - sadly we are moving and will miss this wonderful school. The PTA has wonderful activities. The school offers basketball and baseball that many children enjoy. The environment is very safe and employees are very helpful. We will miss Bingo Night and Movie Night the talent show and all of the fun yearly activities. You won't regret enrolling your children at this school!

    My husband and I fell in love with this school on our son's first day 4 years ago. We're going to try and stay in this district so that ALL our children will have the wonderful experiences that Mountain Road has to offer. You get a real since of family.

    It was about two years ago when I switched my kids from a private school to Mountain Road and I have noticed that my kids have been learning more and they actually seem interested in what their learning! I wouldn't want them to go to any other school than Mountain Road!

    Mountain Road is a wonderful school! The staff is very loving and attentive and they do a great job adjusting their teaching styles and methods to suite the children's needs. Mountain Road welcomes parents into the school and has a great PTA. You cannot go into the building and not find multiple parents helping out. The only negative is the constant change in principals. My oldest has attended for 4 years and we've had 3 different Principals and we will get a new Vice Principal in the fall. Amazingly the constant changes in leadership has not had a negative impact on the school. I believe the parents and teachers deserve the credit for maintaining the warm family feel of the school despite the revolving door to the Principal's office.
