Burgess-Peterson Elementary School 4

When my child first attended BPA, I thought there was more of a caring and well being of students displayed by Ms. Robbins. The school test scores improved and over exceeded expectations. The new principal Mr. White is more like a politician to me and not genuine from my interactions with him. The Assistant Principal is very unpleasant and always has a scowl look on her face. I can count on one hand how many times she has said good morning during student dropoff in the morning and when I have spoken she has acted as if I didn't say anything. I don't think she has the right personality to be in this position but I am sure she meets just the job qualifications and requirements . Lastly, there are good faculty members at BPA that are in a class by themselves. Ms. Searcy, Ms.Donald, Ms. McGill, Ms. Huey, the adminstrative faculty member in the office fulltime, Mr. Jarret, the gym teacher and Ms. Loiuse. I hope BPA will discontinue with the practice of placing people in these positions due to educational cronyism.

BPA is an outstanding school! It is now under the direction of Principal David White who is simply AMAZING. There are not enough positive words in the dictionary to describe how professional, caring, educated and thoughtful he is. He goes above and beyond for his students, parents and staff. BPA is THE school. Very family friendly neighborhood school. Team BPA all the way!

Principal David White is the most genuine person I have ever met. He is a great asset to the EAV community.

BPA is a neighborhood school with a family feel that works to educate the whole child. Administrators and teachers are enthusiastic and committed. Garden class and science elective are bonuses.

What a difference a year makes. I have changed my rating made one year ago for BPA. The school has listened and improved since then. The library is now full of books and the test scores are now very competitive with the top schools in the Atlanta Public School System. I don't yet give it 5 stars, because the admin and some teachers still have some trouble with being responsive. But overall this school is much improved and I am optimistic about the outlook for Burgess-Peterson Academy.

Burgess Peterson Academy is an amazing neighborhood school. Anyone who lives in the East Atlanta community looking at school options should tour the school and speak to other BPA parents before "counting out" this school. BPA provides a nurturing environment while creating a culture of academic success. The after school activity choices and school/PTA-sponsored events are among the best in the area. The students love to go to school here and the leadership team is committed to excellence.

This is an excellent school where the leadership is impeccable! The principal is very engaged and genuinely love all the children. This is demonstrative of improved test scores and various programs. I've notice excellent involvement of parents, teachers and volunteers. The environment is one of openness and transparency. Kudos to all that make this a great school.
