I had heard excellent things about the special ed. program at this school. It is a huge disappointment. I have had to fight the entire year for them to follow my child's IEP (legally required). There is lack of communication at all levels. Feel as if the staff is encouraged not to communicate with parents. Even when asked numerous times for communication, nothing. Got to the point my emails were not answered. Had to take it to the county. It has been a horrible year. If this was my home school, I would definitely look into moving or doing a permissive transfer. They want to do the minimum required for the special needs students and hope the parents don't know what's on their child's IEP.

Suwanee Elementary has been a fantastic environment for all three of our children. We're especially excited about the positive changes the new principal has put into place. The school is a nurturing but academically focused place. Mr. Singleton and Mrs. Stagman have developed great reputations as all star teachers. Really all the teachers at Suwanee Elem are dedicated and on top of their game. We couldn't be happier!

The last posting was not an accurate representation of the ES overall. The previous principal was VERY unresponsive and was not interested in sharing information with parents. Yes there are a few teachers at this school who need more training, just like every other school. But, ...... HOWEVER!, the new principal is winning parents over by leaps and bounds. Get involved in the PTA or at least visit their website. They are bringing technology into the schools, she is monitoring which teachers are using the science labs and other "extras" at the school. The new principal has listened and is still listening to what parents have to say. This school is definately on it's way UP!!!

School has gone downhill. Very unfriendly atmosphere. I hope that the new adminstration will be able to turn things around, because the previous Dr. Smith did not return emails or calls.

This school is great. The staff works hard to make sure all the students are successful. They have some of the best test scores in the county. Keep up the good job.

This has been a wonderful school for my kindergartener. The teachers are wonderful, the curriculum is academically challenging, and parent involvment is great. They are also doing formal phonics instruction, which a lot of other area schools do not do in K.

Suwanee has been a tremendous experience for both of my children,one motivated by achievement and the other by relationships. The needs of both have been met by a dedicated and motivated staff. Parental and community involvement is outstanding and positive.PTA/Junior Achievement.
