    "This is our daughters 3rd year at Sarah Smith Elementary. Me and my wife are both medical doctors, I am a now voluntary retired trauma surgeon and my wife is a working internist n therefore the academic/competitive challenges we put in front of our daughter r almost always on the difficult side considering her age /grade level but thanks to a very dedicated staff n wonderful teachers, our daughter continues to surprise us by answering at times some very difficult questions. As professionals we would highly recommend Sarah Smith Elementary to families who want their children to excel and develop a mind of their own!"

    "Amazing Elementary School with a wonderful staff, great community of families and a lot of extras beyond the already good curriculum. A language program, good music, art and gym programs, great library at both campuses, international travelers week, reflections art program, etc. These all contribute to each child's overall experience and enrich their learning. We are very pleased."

    "As parents of a Kindergartener, we were very nervous about where to send our child to school. We cannot be happier with Sarah Smith. My son's teacher is responsive and he absolutely adores her. He is excited to go to school, much more than he was in preschool. From what I understand, the teaching is accelerated compared to many of the schools in the Atlanta area. Also, with such a strong PTA and funds from the school's foundation, the teachers do not have to worry about needed supplies, etc. as they do in many public schools. I would highly recommend saving your money by having your child go here rather than a private school."

    "I've had at least one child at this school for the past 8 years, and it's been a good experience for my family. Yes, the school and the class sizes have grown larger (thanks to the Georgia State legislature), but the quality of the teaching has remained high, and I think my youngest child will be just as well prepared to do well in Middle School as my eldest, now in High School), with the exception of the slightly reduced proficiency in French. But, as my out-of-state relatives tell me, we are beyond fortunate that our children are learning a foreign language in public elementary school! The Challenge (gifted) program is a strength, and the cultural & racial diversity of the school is a big plus. A tip to future parents: get involved in the PTA and volunteer for at least one committee. It's rewarding for you, and it will benefit for your child. There are lots of jobs suitable for whatever schedule you may have. Given the large size of the school, it's important to make an effort to join in the community by volunteering."

    "Goodness, the July 30 entry here sounds quite bitter and extremely off track. If this school has gone downhill, how does it continue to grow and families seek it out as the choice for their children's education? There are outstanding teachers who work extremely hard to meet the needs of all students. The national recognition which has come the way of this school is much deserving. I guess there seems to be "one bad apple" in the bunch, and granted, all schools can improve, but really? Glad this parent has gone private....pay the tuition. I'll stay put. As do the other 1300 student's .... thank you to everyone associated with this fine school. Keep up the good work!"
