I was a former student of this school and I must say that this is a GREAT school with lots of friendly staff members ready to help any student in need of help. EVEN though I was sort of a trouble-maker myself, the staff helped me change my ways. This school has all the basic fundamentals to get a kid started in starting school they also have gifted programs.(at least when I was there but I don't know now) The curriculums of this school are very understandable but if your child wants a challenge just sign them up for gifted classes. Overall, the teachers are nice and helpful and the classes are relatively easy and understandable and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone looking for an elementary school in Albany,GA. And this is from a former student of this lovely school, and you can even ask some teachers there about me.
