The Main Street Academy
Grateful to: Teacher

I am thankful to Mr. Lotfy, a 5th grade Social Studies teacher at TMSA. Mr. Lotfy is very passionate about his job. His teaching helped our son further his interest in History and Social Studies, and recently scored in the 99th percentile on the Georgia Milestones test. Thank you Mr. Lotfy!

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 the gifted students, art and Spanish programs. The parents are really warm at TMSA - it feels like a family. I would recommend the school to anyone.

My sons have always been encouraged to check their work at TMSA, and correct or improve it if possible.

I see this in the behavior of our sons' classmates at TMSA all the time.

The Main Street Academy is specifically built upon 8 Core Values. Those values include Wisdom, Justice, Courage, Compassion, Hope, Respect, Responsibility and Integrity. These are reinforced to the students throughout the school year in many ways, including references by the teachers, intercom announcements invoking them, rules when on field trips, special awards, t-shirts, and much more.

I would not recommend this school. Parents in the area are limited with the schools they have to choose from . This school has become no better than the others in south fulton .

The Main Street Academy
Teacher effectiveness: Ineffective

High turn over rate with teachers . Most have little control over their classrooms . Everytime I visited the classroom students were out of their seats being very disrespectful (3rd grade)

The Main Street Academy
Amount of homework: Too much

Posted May 26, 2015

The grade levels are departmentalized and the teachers do not communicate in regards to homework .
