Open Quote I am new to Alpharetta, and my son is new to this school. He goes to Grade 4 here. The teachers and the staff are lovely. However, there's bullying, use of foul language, and bad behavior by students in this school. When things are brought to the notice of the staff, it is addressed, but as no disciplinary action is taken, things do not change or stop. My son just spent close to 3 months here and has faced bullying and racism. Seeing how some students can go unpunished despite doing bad things is disappointing as a parent. Some grade 4/ 5 students are mannerless and fearless and engage in bullying that's poisonous for the school and other good kids. I hope staff can look into such incidents more seriously and take strict action. Close Quote

Open Quote Excellent school for all types of students. Great leadership, wonderful teachers, & extraordinary children make the perfect setting for learning. My child did not LOVE school until he started there. Now he’s a very proud AES Eagle! ❤️ Close Quote

Open Quote My child is in first grade at AES and has an absolutely wonderful teacher, Ms. Mooney. She is patient and focused on making sure all students achieve their best. The administration also includes a new principal and assistant principal who bring a renewed sense of accountability and transparency by actively engaging teachers and parents. I am also involved in the school and PTO, and, although there are parents who have deeper experience at AES, there are also new parents looking to connect. I am sorry for the other reviewer who does not feel a sense of community within the school and the parents and hope they reconsider trying again. Close Quote

Open Quote The school culture/spirit at this school is horrible. I’ve volunteered on numerous occasions and have noticed that the PTO members operate like a clique. They have already formed their groups and do not allow anyone else in. So from my experience they rarely make me feel welcomed as a parent because I am not a member of their “cult.” Overall, the school principal staff and teachers thus far are great and my child does well academically but the PTO and school governance parent representative should lead a better example.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
