    "One word: HORRIBLE! A few teachers need to find other jobs because they have no patience to teach in an over crowded classroom in a shady area. My son kept getting bullied and I kept sending notes to his teacher who in return yelled at him for all the notes. She laughs in his face when he is terrified of a flying moth. My son also gets yelled at by the after school tutoring teacher because she is frustrated at his progress. Principal offered no help, so I called the board of education and have my kids transferred to another school. After that I said good riddance and thank God no one is yelling at my son anymore!!"

    "This is our second year at PWES and we are really happy. Our kids are in 4th, 2nd, and Pre-K. Their teacher have always been able to understand their strength and their needs and to focus on each of them individually and they have gone above and beyond their duty to help them. The ESOL team is amazing and they work in great collaboration with each teacher in the school. Since last year the school has a new principal and this year a new Vice Principal. They are full of energy and ideas and are working to use every resource to give the kids the best. I've always felt welcome to have a conference whenever I had concerns and I've always felt listened and that we were working together! this school gave so much to our family. Don't look at the old building, it is just the outside appearance and anyway they are building the new school that will be ready in less than 2 years. Look at the smily faces of both students and teachers and you'll see a very happy environment."

    "Port Wentworth Elementary School is an old building is an understatement. The place looks like the scene of a horror movie! My child s classroom had 1 teacher and 26 students (11 of the student had English as a second language). When I said that my child would never get help, her teacher said that she did not even have the time to help the children that really needed help. I said that this means that my child is going to be left behind and her teacher told me that she would pass. My child s bus was 20 minutes late every morning and 50 minutes late every afternoon. My child went from loving school to crying every night because of this school. We had to start homeschooling her."

    "Port Wentworth Elementary School is an old building.....truly "old school". But, with that being said, it is an excellent elementary school in this day and age. The children are truly cared for and watched carefully as well. The book fair is a wonderful addition and actually encourages the children to read and appreciate the world around them. MOST of the teachers have been there for many years which only shows that they are happy and content with the administration at the school. That makes for a happy classroom and happier children. I would not want my granddaughter attending any other elementary school in Chatham County. Even though it is bursting at the seams with students, I have watched as each and every student got the attention that they deserve. It is a shame that more parents don't actively participate in their children's education. That is what makes any good school a great school and Port Wentworth could be great."

    "So far, so good! Our daughter just started her first year at Port Wentworth and seems to enjoy it. The staff seems pretty good and they have an excellent ESL program which is important as our daughter was born and raised in Scandanavia. The only complaint we have is that the school seems to make decisions at the last minute. For example we asked in May when summer school would start and were informed they still hadn't decided if they were even going to have summer school or not."
