    "My child has speech issues along with other developmental things. So it's difficult for my child to tell me what's going on. I come to find out that my child's teacher was threating to spank the children in the class! We have an audio recording of her. I can't understand why a first grade teacher would say this to kids! When I spoke to the asst principal about this, she said "I wondered if the teacher said that jokingly to the kids". The principal didn't have anything to say about the incident. So, I took my concerns over to the superintendent to let her know. She was sincere and apologetic and assured me she will find out what happened. My child no longer attends Grovetown Elementary. I have no idea what action (if any) was taken against my child's teacher. I was told the actions taken are protected as a confidential personnel matter but assured me that the issue will be "addressed". It's still unsettling to me. We also dealt with the special education department and with the speech pathologist. Mrs. Butler, Mrs. Baird, and Mrs. Harshbarger were truly amazing with my child. My child also spoke highly of other 1st grade teachers! Melissa, the school nurse is great too."

    "I think GTE is awesome as far as teachers and curriculum go. I have 3 kids there currently a son in K, daughter in 1st, another son in 3rd. Mrs. CAsh, Mrs. Hefner, and Mrs. Ribas you all are the absolute BEST of the BEST! The front office, however, is terribly UNPROFESSIONAL! They have NO sense of urgency whatsoever and will leave you standing there for 5 min or more if you don't stop them and ask for help. Then they act as if you are bothering them. I do think that the school could for sure use a good remodel. The school is very old and outdated. The PTO I have joined for the 3rd time and the first year was great, however, the last 2 years no one has called or reached out to ask for volunteers or kept me in the loop on anything. I almost want to get my money back. If you can get past the front office staff and the outdated building this is an amazing school. The teachers here actually DO care and it isn't just a JOB to them."

    "My son attends 2nd grade at Grovetown Elementary. We were nervous about him attending at first because it is in a low income area and is next to trailer parks, but it has proved to be a great school. His teacher is in regular communication and has helped us to effectively address some homework issues with my son. I eat lunch with him and the food isn't so impressive although they do offer a decent variety of veggies. The school has a small town feel and there is a strong Grovetown police presence. The teachers hug my son every morning when I drop him off, and I have noticed they are that loving towards all the children...the precious elem school he attended was not that expressive or warm towards students. My son is learning by leaps and bounds and we look forward to the new school building that is soon being built."

    "We recently moved to Georgia and my daughter has always been a good student. The office staff at the school are extrememly rude they act as if you are bothering them. The teachers we have had are lacking. I am not impressed, she is learning things she learned in 2nd grade and this is 4th grade. There is very little communication with the parents so make sure you ask your child how they are doing and check the homework. Go online and research the grade benchmarks. I am really dissapointed with the school and the level of education she is getting. The school is clean and seems to be focused on security so that is a positive but the playground if thats what they call it is a joke. The kids spend recess in the blazing sun with little to do while the teachers sit in the shade and supervise. They need a play structure or something for these poor kids! I am considering private school. I would re think sending your child to this school."
