Open Quote Sawyer Road Elementary is a fantastic and diverse school. The IB program is wonderful and my children have thrived in this school. They offer so much more than just academics - Art, Music/Drama, Spanish, hands on Science Lab and fun STEM Activities in the classrooms. SRE has been a great fit for my family and a wonderful community. We lucked out that we’re districted for Sawyer! Close Quote

My husband and I have been very impressed with the well thought out IB Curriculum, the quality of the teachers and respect they show every student. We’re impressed with the quality and depth of our children's work, and how this school is helping them grow into well spoken, confident young people. Our children enjoy school and enjoy learning. They are learning at Sawyer Road how to be well rounded, creative thinkers. Sawyer Road is a place where the more you learn the more you are impressed.

Open Quote Sawyer Road Elementary is a fantastic multi cultural school. The teachers and staff are amazing and they truly care about the wellbeing of my child. I love everything from spanish class, the science lab, the nature trail behind the school, the garden, art class, music and drama, the huge media center, computer labs, ipads, the IB philosophy and curriculum and the IB Learner profiles. My kids are thriving and excelling in school. Sawyer is truly a special place and I'm thankful everyday that my kids get to go to school here. Close Quote

Open Quote We love this school! It really isn't a school as much as a family! My second son just started Kindergarten this year and he is excited to get up and go to school everyday! The teachers and staff are amazing and dedicated to all the children who attend. The International Baccalaureate curriculum is second to none and the Marietta City Schools district offers children the chance for the IB diploma when graduating high school. This is highly sought after by colleges! Wouldn't think of sending my children anywhere else! Go take a tour and you will see what it is all about! Close Quote

Open Quote This school is truly exceptional. Being an IB school sets this school apart from any other in Cobb County. The teachers are passionate about the IB PYP program and the students love this type of learning environment. We are still shocked that we can get this type of education for our children from a public school! Once you step through the doors, you will know there is no comparison. Close Quote

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.
