WC Abney Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

I think this school has great teachers. They love the children and want them to succeed. My daughter made great academic strides here. However, the principal has a very arrogant air and is unapproachable. He stands in the foyer of the school in the mornings not smiling or greeting anyone. Even if you make direct eye contact with him. I'm not sure why he even comes out of his office. We were new to the school this year in kindergarten and he NEVER introduced himself, said hello or even so much as smiled at us. He should be working somewhere that he doesn't have to interact with people. Especially with children. He was the main reason why we transferred schools. I am a certified teacher and have worked with several principals so I have some experience interacting with them. This principal was the pits. They should replace him with a friendlier, more approachable one who at least makes you feel like he/she wants to be there. He was the worst.

We transferred out from out of state. The teachers and office staff made it very easy and comfortable for my child to transfer.

I think parents need to be more involved in their children education. My child was a straight A student in 1st & 2nd grade. Although this never effected her grades, I only had 1 issue and that was with a teacher missing too many days leaving a "sub from hell" in charge for the rest of the school year. I was able to state my concern and the immediately school took of that issue. They was able to move child to another class. My child first half of the year first grade teacher was good but the second half of the year teacher was even better. They do care about your children and will make things right. Just please be involved.

Abney needs to be socially and academically challenged. All I've gotten is excuses when I've made academic suggestions for improvement to my child's 5th grade teacher. Some of the work provided in the 5th grade wasn't challenging and will not prepare some kids for middle school. I think every school benefits when there is diversity among the staff. Abney and other schools in Paulding County have done a poor job in doing that. A child can't benefit when all of their teachers are close friends and won't speak out for something that they know is wrong. You have to be open in hiring people from your office staff to your teachers. It is unfair to just hire friends of your staff members especially if it's not going to ever yield diversity within your school. It's great that some parents within the school want to mention teachers names, but just keep in mind that all kids and parents at this school are not treated the same. Some kids are targeted for everything that they do. Some teachers are waiting on a chance to penalize for one simple mistake or mishap. It hard to educate a child who is constantly under pressure trying not to make a mistake. We want to hold every child accountable, however one single minor incident doesn't warrant a trip to the office unless you are just out to penalize that child. The office workers are the gateway to the school and they only make sure they speak to certain people. The only time they speak to me is when there are other parents are in the office. A few teachers here are biased. I'm not to fond of some of the administrators who don't hold their staff accountable and are quick to blame the students and/or their parents. Also, safety is important so I think some of the staff could do a better job of monitoring the kids towards the front of the car line in the morning instead of conversing. Nevertheless, there are some awesome teachers and other staff members here who go out of their way to make every child and parent feel welcomed! They work diligently with a positive attitude to educate every child. Please keep up the good work!

Overall a good school. Newly built. Clean. Safe. The biggest problem I see is the student to teacher ratio. My child is in 1st grade and the class size is about 25. There is no way a teacher can properly teach and maintain order in a class this large.
