    Well, I guess it should speak for itself that as a homeschooling mom of 15 years, I put 3 of our kids in Colham Ferry. I was THAT impressed when we moved here, toured the school and met the principal. Since making the decision, the wisdom in making that choice is affirmed daily. The teachers are so caring, Principal Carter...well one thing that steered my thought process was how much the students love him! During our impromptu tour, the students were enthusiastically hugging him and engaging him wherever he went. Our 3 boys love it at Colham Ferry and I thank God regularly for bring us here. The standards are very high. Impressive. Sweet little school and I am just HOPING that when our house sells in SC that we can find a permanent home here in the CF district. We would hate to leave.

    When my husband and I moved to the area I knew that all the schools in Oconee were great! But we were fortunate that our son ended up at Colham Ferry. I can't say enough good things about the school, the amazing people there and the fantastic programs! We love it!

    The teachers at this school are fantastic. They are the most competent group of elementary school teachers I have ever known. And the parental involvement is great. Every event that happens at CFES you see this tremendous outpouring of parent support. The parents are so involved with the school and are encouraged to participate in so many different ways. The principal, Mrs. Broderick, is involved so closely with the children. She is competent, no-nonsense, serious when needed, mixed with kindness and a genuine love of what she does. I absolutely think moving to this county and placing my child in CFES was the best educational decision I have made for my daughter.
