6/24/2012parentI was bummed when we started here in K. My son is very gifted which we have known about since he was 3. It was recommended to us by professionals to send him to the Walker School. We did not want to pay those prices and I had heard great things about Shallowford Falls so we decided to try it. I expected to find it lacking but we have had a great experience here. He has had great teachers that have given him the extra attention and work he needs. He is in the Target program which seems to be good so far. Parental involvement is very high. I love that it is a small school. I am impressed that other teachers who have not had my son in class know him by name and there are days when he tells me the principal had conversations with him at recess about what he was working on. The front desk staff is always friendly and parents are always welcome in this school. The only cons would be that Spanish is not part of the regular class time, only as an after school option, and that science is only every other week for the lower grades (but science teacher is paid for by the foundation.) Overall a wonderful school. The small size makes it truly a gem in the East Cobb School system.
1/19/2012parentShallowford Falls is a PHENOMENAL school!! The teachers are wonderful and the parent involvement is outstanding. My son has thrived here. I give this school the highest marks and look forward to sending all 3 of our kids here...
1/18/2012parentShallowford Falls does not impress me. The teachers seem tired and lack the smiles that should be pervasive in an elementary school. The focus on AR reading is too much, taking authenticity and intrinsic love of reading away from students. Where I think a school should be humming with kid sounds, this one is quiet. Newsletters are inconsistent from the teacher, school and PTA. I have no opportunities to volunteer in the classroom, only at big events such as the book fair. My son has learned, yes. But he is uninspired by this test-score focused learning. My daughter became a well behaved wall flower, timid and forgotten I have seen kid-centered, vibrant, healthy schools. This one has not impressed me on that level. Their test scores are great, but that is about it.
8/14/2011parentI love Shallowford Falls Elementary. The principal is wonderful and they have quality teachers that care about our children. I am proud to have my daughter go to that school.
2/20/2011otherI love Shallowford Falls Elementary School. It was a great fit for everyone and the teachers there are wonderful and very nice. One thing that I didn't like about it was that the only way to go to the nurse if you have thrown up or need medical attention right then. Kids who went and who have high tempatures but not running a fever would be sent back with no question at all. I love this school but I feel that they could improve on that.
8/16/2010parentShallowford Falls is a fantastic school. All-Around Excellence describes a school that goes above and beyond to ensure high achievement from it's students, in addition to offering ample before and afterschool opportunities for enrichment. There is something for everyone at Shallowford Falls. Parental involvement is encouraged whether you have 20 minutes a week or 20 hours a month to contribute. Not only do children succeed at this school, but their efforts are recognized and celebrated with awards, honors and verbal praise. The administration and support staff at this school is tops... we're proud to be part of this amazing school community after relocating from the midwest!
2/12/2008parentOne of the best public Elementary Schools in the Country
2/7/2008parentThis school is the tops! From the front office to the great teaches, students, and parents. I was a skeptical parent, planning to head to private school at first sign of less than excellent, but I have only good things to say. I have 2 children currently at SF and I can't say enough.
10/10/2006parentShallowford Falls is a dynamic school of excellence that provides a high quality education in a nurturing environment. The awesome teachers at Shallowford Falls encourage critical thinking as they prepare our students to be life long learners. We have had three children at Shallowford Falls over the past eight years and could not ask for a better school! The parent involvement is wonderful, the administration is responsive and innovative, and the teaching staff is competent and caring. The arts are highlighted through music, art, and an incredible extracurricular drama program. Students are encouraged to be compassionate to one another as well as to care for natural resources. You will not find a better education, private or public, than that provided at Shallowford Falls Elementary School!
3/1/2006parentThe quality of this school is of the highest level. Great target program, smaller class size and a large parental involvement
5/3/2005parentThis school is amazing. We transferred in from a private school this year and have been floored by the aggressive curriculum and quality teaching staff. I had heard that it was run like a private school and after one year I would agree. The only difference is the unbelievable level of parental and community involvement. It is the ideal community for a young student - safe, caring, and academically excellent.
7/31/2003parentParents are extremely involved and this is the school that prepares students and teachs students how to succeed!
