Parent Sabrina DeLaney's story

My son is currently a second grader at Easley Elementary. Prior to attending Easley Elementary, he was a student at a private school in Durham. The private school he attended was wonderful but due to changes in our personal situation, he could no longer attend. I then began researching schools and was informed by several friends that I should consider Easley.

After some research, I decided to enroll my son. Because my son had attended a private school for kindergarten, DPS required that he be evaluated to ensure that he was properly prepared for the 1st Grade. All of the personnel at Easley Elementary made this process as smooth as possible for both me and my son. Mr. Gibson (the principal) and my son’s kindergarten and first grade teachers were all wonderful, patient and showed a great interest in seeing that the decision made was in the best interest of my son. I am amazed at how caring and compassionate the entire staff of Easley Elementary seems to be. With each function I attend, I am surprised that the staff seems to know every child by name! Easley Elementary is truly a great school! In fact, I’ve raved so much about it that my cousin is planning to enroll her daughter there as well. My son will definitely be there until he graduates the 5th grade! Kudos to Mr. Gibson and all the teachers & staff at Easley Elementary!
