I want to thank you for hosting the Georgia State University music faculty in your band classes today. We had such a wonderful time working with all of your students and felt so welcome at the school. From being greeted at the door, to being personally escorted to the band room by such well mannered students, to the thoughtful donations of donuts and orange juice - you have left a great impression. All of the faculty commented on what a nice reception they received. The most important thing, however, is how impressed they were with TMSA students. All of the students were so eager to learn, respectful and a pure joy to teach. Bravo to all of you in creating such a fabulous learning environment. I have taught MANY workshops in MANY middle and high schools in this area, including APS, Cobb, Gwinnett, Dekalb, Forsyth, etc, and I have never had such well behaved and interested students, especially in middle school. I, as well as all of the GSU faculty, were quite impressed. Who leads the way? TMSA!

My oldest son has been at The Main Street Academy since its opening. He is now in 4th grad and my younger son is in Kindergarten. We have been very pleased with TMSA over the last four years. The secret to your child's success at any school is parental involvement. Does TMSA have issues? Absolutely. However, the alternatives are to bus your kid an hour away, go to your neighborhood school or put in the work to make the one where you are the best it can be. Instead of complaining about all that is wrong (students, parents, teachers and administrators) come up with executable solutions to the problems. The first step to improving TMSA is MORE parental involvement. My children have excelled academically and we are very happy.

This school is terrible! i'm a student that has been enrolled for all of my middle school years. The leadership in the school has completely shifted completely since the beginning, the school itself is playing catch-up. In result, students are falling behind. in my classes, i have all a's. i cannot wait to go to high school and leave this sorry excuse for a school !

I think the teachers are doing a wonderful job with the resources they have which is the largest downfall of the school. No library. No media center. No gymnasium. No real classrooms for middle school. TheTMSA school board is doing a good job, but are limited by an inept Fulton County school board and city leaders that lack any vision. (East Point and College Park) Test scores are indicative of the fundamental problem with the Southside children can read, but struggle in math and science. To me the school should be focusing more of these two critical areas. There is also too much focus on CRCT scores. Like most Georgia schools, this seems to be the schools driving force of their curriculum. There are also too many disruptive children in the school, causing the teachers to focus too much energy away from children who really want to learn. It could be a great school, but Fulton County and the surrounding cities need to step up and help. I fault them for a vast majority of the issues with the school.

We have been at TMSA since day one and have had a fantastic experience. We have a fourth grader and a kindergartener at the school. Our teachers are excellent - committed, energetic, caring, and great communicators. Our boys are learning a lot in the first month of school. We have been especially pleased with the "specials" offerings at TMSA. Our older son joined the school band this year, and will have lessons three times a week during the school day. There is also Robotics Club, Beta Club, Chess Club, and much more. A lot to choose from. We are also very pleased with the TAG, art and Spanish programs. The parents are really warm at TMSA - it feels like a family. I would recommend the school to anyone.

TMSA has cussing,fights and limited homework so i dont get the argument.As you can see most of the good reviews are by who,lower academy parents who rarely comes to the upper.This is on account of my son and what he said it was like.The child gets dropped off and walks to their classroom.Then their teacher yells and screams at them for the next 2 hours.Then they go to specials but the teacher keeps them in to redo work that they missed by the TEACHER yelling. Then they head to lunch and there is no talking.Recess time oh wait the upper doesnt have recess so,back to a small hot classroom they share with 20 other children.Dismissal time so the teacher shells out homework and they go home to spend 3 hours on it. Does this sound like fun, NO we wouldnt like it if we had to go through this.Now the Lower basically is what its supposed to be like.Come on people it a charter school that means we have a say.So say something.

My son has been at The Main Street Academy since the opening, first at the Lower now at the upper Academy. As with any new school, there have been some challenges but the benefits far outweigh the issues anticipatEd with a startup school. TMSA Board and administration have continuously made changes and improvements for the betterment of students. I have another son in high school that went to elementary and middle school in the East Point area so I've experience firsthand the public school alternatives. Cussing in the hallways, fighting in the school, limited homework, 15-20 parents at PTA meetings & maybe one field trip a year are what I witnessed at my public school alternative. I must say The Main Street Academy has been a far better experience for my younger son. The parent involvement , the exposure to multiple cultures and the visible commitment from the Board, Administration and staff make TMSA the best no cost option for me. Let's not forget Saturday school, Wednesday tutorial and all the other support programs this startup school has put in place for our children to succeed. As with anything new , TMSA is what you make it so I encourage parents to stay involved.

TMSA was a great mistake! I enrolled my child in this school thinking it was a better alternative to the public middle schools. Classroom management is awful by the teachers. Faculty could care less about discretion when talking about children around other children. The teachers never give homework or update you about your child's progress unless they are in need of disciplinary actions! There were absolutely NO PROGRAMS for the middle school children to participate in and no incentive for parent involvement. I have heard from parents in the lower academy that they are great there, but my warning goes for the messes in the trailers. Please do not expose your kids to this!

My daughter started TMSA in the Fall, and my expectations have been greatly exceeded! Our K teacher is fantastic she is energetic and enthusiastic, and works hard to really teach to the different strengths among the students in her classroom. We are just over half-way through the year, and I am amazed at what my daughter has already learned both in the core curriculum (reading, writing, math), and in the specials (art, music, spanish). There are certainly resource challenges, but I would encourage any parent to strongly consider TMSA as a great elementary option. Both Academy Directors are great I interface with the Lower Academy Director most often and she is friendly, responsive, direct and fair. Having interfaced with the Principal on several occasions, I appreciate his style of leadership and approach to school management. Overall, we are very happy with TMSA and look forward to 1st grade!

I have been consistently amazed at the rigor of the curriculum and the quality of the teachers at TMSA, at both the Upper and Lower Academy. The dedicated faculty work longer days than most other teachers and put in lots of extra time. Lots of parental involvement too, so expect to be asked to volunteer lots of time if you send your child to TMSA!

I have a 6th and 7th grader at TMSA. "In my opinion" This has been the WORST experience in my children's life. Do yourself a favor and please please please talk to the PARENTS before enrolling your child. Random parents .... the ones in the parking lot picking up their children. Due to legal reasons I am limited on what I can post, but please do your research.

TMSA has been a wonderful part of our family's life since its opening in 2010. Our son attended 1st and 2nd grades at TMSA and had the benefit of very motivated teachers who helped raise his reading skills to exceed standard levels. Now that he's in 3rd grade, the reading focus has really worked with him - he reads 2-3 books on his own each week. So we are very happy with the foundation that TMSA has given our son academically. All of his classroom teachers, as well as his TAG, Art, Music, Spanish and PE teachers, and so many others I see at TMSA, go above and beyond to push the students to do their best. I've been impressed with the Saturday School and Wednesday tutoring programs implemented this year, which seem designed to improve results even more. They key, in my eyes, has been the dedication of the teachers and staff, and the parent community at TMSA. I've never seen anything like it! Hundreds of people at every PTO meeting and volunteer effort, and a lot of professional, middle-class parents who want to make TMSA exceptional. We love TMSA and are thankful to have it as a public charter school choice in our community.

From my experience here, the Upper Academy teachers are rude and unfriendly as well as the Principle. Some teacher's talk about the kids in front of other kids. Also some teachers questions the kids about personal things. You ask me I think it is over rated. Who wouldn't want you to think their school is the best. It needs alot of improvement starting with the principle and the 4th grade teachers. Some of the kids use profanity and talks about things kids shouldn't talk about and when it is brought to the teacher's attention, nothing is being done about it....Enter at your own risk!

As an educator at TMSA this school year, I have seen a dramatic improvement in the school environment and even better the administration. Principal Homan and Ms. Parker are amazing and have really made a difference with regards to discipline. We are truly honored to have such an outstanding active administration. I love the school, the people I work with, and of course my students.

My child has been a student at TMSA since its inception and has really excelled academically and grown socially. Of the neighborhood public elementary schools options available, TMSA is one of the best. Despite the usual growing pains of being a new school, parent involvement and support for the school, especially the PTO, is exceptionally high. PTO meetings are always well attended (75+ parents, teachers, and administrators. We like the fact that TMSA offers a wide variety of after school activities (e.g., robotics, karate, football, basketball, cheerleading, dance, cub scouts, girl scouts, chess). What we like the most about TMSA is the high level of parent participation and administration and staff's overall commitment to the success of the students and the school. The school even offers a Saturday school option to provide students with more focused, individualized attention to address content they may be struggling with. TMSA is a very good school well on its way to becoming great!

The Main Street Academy continues to grow and mature.My daughter is in 4th grade this year and school is progressing very well. This is our 3rd year at TMSA and I am pleased with what has happened in the classroom. The 4th grade team is extremely strong this year and I am happy we decided to grow with the school.

My daughter has been attending TMSA for the past two years.To be extremely honest, I've seen the good, the bad and the ugly there.I'm not going to overpraise TMSA, but I'm not going to bash it either. Every school has things it needs to improve on and that's what I appreciate about TMSA.They don't profess to have all the right answers.Are there some kids with behavioral issues?Sure.Do staff members sometimes have a bad day?Sure.Are there potentially other issues.Maybe.One thing I do know is that my daughter is receiving a stellar "private school" education at no cost to me.Public schools don't get the job done and private schools don't exempt your child from dealing with the "real world".It actually makes them unprepared so I appreciate my daughter not learning in a bubble type of environment so I can discuss with her realities of life as well as her education.Thank you TMSA for all you do for our children.They spend eight hours a day with you.I think we as parents often times forget to be grateful for your service & to work with you as a team on matters that need addressing.I highly recommend TMSA to anyone wanting their child to receive a great education.{My objective opinion}

The Main Street Academy is definitely an amazing community. In just one short year...so much has happened and shows us parents that this is a great decision for our kids. Just by Principal Hacklers hands on approach, the friendly, helpful staff, the higher caliber child and parent....it's simply amazing. I love the uniform policy and the fact that it is a charter school with all the perks of a private school. I hope for nothing but the best for TMSA in the years to come. I see BIG BIG things by Leaps and Bounds for this school. The experience of being a part of something so BIG is Phenomenal!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Georgia administered End-of-Course Tests (EOCT) in 9th grade math levels 1 and 2, biology, United States history, physical science, American literature and economics. The EOCT is a standards-based assessment, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Georgia. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
