    "I have nothing bad to say about this school! Because since 2013 til now all i can say are good things about it! This school has always made me feel welcome compare to other schools we have been too. So far all the teachers my daughters have had have really taught them alot and we also have to keep in mind that parental involvement is also the key to continue guiding your child to be successful in life we can't blame the teachers and staff, when we all have to work as a team to get our child where we want them to be! And til this date my daughters teachers have also given me all that support to also guide me on how to also help my daughters at home in areas they are having trouble with. My kids couldnt be in a better place than in Compton Elementary! A big shout out to all teachers n staff for all they do for our kids!"

    "My children have been going to Compton for the last 12 years and during this time I have had great experiences. Liz Murphy does a great job with the parents and the teachers my children have had have been great. Haskins, Ballenger, Luttrell, Hamilton, Carey, Brown...great teachers. The only reason for not giving a 5 star rating is that some of these great teachers are no longer there. The have a great drama team that heads of great performances with the students. How the rating is that low is beyond me."

    "I was weary about sending my kids here. With such bad reviews. At the end of the day any school is as good as your parental involvement. If parents are not involved in your kids schools then the rating is always going to be low. This school tries very hard to go above and beyond. From Movie nights, school dances, end of year field trips, Target (the gifted program for Cobb county) the school rocks. Sure there are things they could improve upon like that rude lady at the front desk, but the school as a whole is great. I've had three kids attend this school. One of them went years ago when it had a much higher rating but the experience has been the same. Will still had a kid there this school year 2014-2015."

    "Do your kid a favor and send them somewhere else! There are only a few good teachers here. About 1 per grade level. Pretty unfortunate odds that your child will get one that doesn't care much about your family. There's an extreme lack of parental involvement at this school, but you can't blame the parents too much..the principle and secretary go to great lengths to discourage any kind of parental involvement. The PTA is run solely by staff, which is not how it should be! It should be 50/50 staff and parents. For the sake of this school, I certainly hope they get a new principle soon. The current one has no idea what she's doing and needs to step away from her post."
