We were promised more teachers. That has not happend. 38 kids in one class is too much for 5th grade. The board can find MACs for the kids but can not find the funds for teachers. There is something seriously wrong here. Parents are moving away from Orange Beach, home schooling, or going to Saint Benedicts ...  Read more

We love this school! Such a warm and friendly staff. Principal Ellis is outside every morning and afternoon. He greets all the children by name. My daughter absolutely loved Mrs. Smith. She went above and beyond to meet the emotional and academic needs of her students. My only complaint is that school ...  Read more

We love this school. The student to teacher ratio is excellent and for the most part, the teachers are highly qualified and seem to really care about the students. The principal is very much involved and I think that pleased the students. One thing I do get frustrated with, though, is the amount of ...  Read more

We have two children attending Orange Beach Elementary School. We have had nothing but a positive experience. Our children are in a safe, clean, positive environment. I volunteer on a weekly basis, I'm not one for small talk so I take the opportunity to watch and listen as an observer. It is my ...  Read more

I have one child in OBES. I hear over and over what a wonderful school this is, and how the best teachers are at this school. Our experience has been that the administrators are more concerned with appearances (looking good in the public eye), than with the children's overall academic and personal growth. ...  Read more
