As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

My daugter has been at this school going on her third year. She makes straight A's and does just fine at this school. Some of the teachers could be better but all in all its good for a public school.

This will be my daughters third year at SPMS. My child is in supposed Advanced classes. She has to write down her homework everyday and have teachers initial (because she chronically forgets). The first two or three months they had one or two assignments per week. This dwindled rapidly and by the end of the year she would go WEEKS without having an assignment in any of her academic classes. I'm not a teacher maybe there is something I don't know, but in my opinion, this is kind of lazy. I will not call anyone out, but I was told that "Administration tells teachers to give them a passing grade to just get them through." I also have a huge problem with Classroom control. I see videos the kids are taking of each other laughing and being disruptive in class and then posting on FB. For the life of me, I don't understand why the teachers allow them to be so loud and disruptive while they are teaching. It almost seems like many are burnt out and don't care. If I could afford private school, that is where they would be.

So, some parents think bulling goes unnoticed? Maybe because their kid IS the bully. On the whole the school has been fine. I have had no problems with communication, or any thing else. Mrs Webb has always called me back, and the teachers have always responded in a timely manner.

Im a student at SPMS. I dont like it that much at all. Last year a known trouble maker threatened to shoot another and all they did about it was give the student 3 days ISS. You cant even have your phone out at lunch or you get it taken up and 3 days in ISS, or even if a teacher even sees it in your pocket!!! On the other hand most teachers are good.

I am not thrilled with this school at all, my son is in 6th grade and is the EBD class, they have no idea about disabilities, Mrs. Web and Mrs.foresse are uneducated in this area. I have had meetings with them and they use my child disabilities as an excuse to try to get him into another school. Looking at getting an special needs advocate to help me!

Communication at this school is AWFUL! Multiple calls and emails to both Ms Web and Mr Williams have gone completely ignored. Bullying is being ignored by the administration. I have been told that teachers don't have time to call or email parents and that 6th graders are not in elementry school anymore.

This school is terrible. My 2 children have been there since 6th grade and one of them has been being bullied but the administration seems to be turning a blind eye. They tell me they will handle it but I don't think they are. Thinking of homeschooling my kids.

So far, so good this school year. My childs teachers seem to be eager to help her learn. Their Venture Program has really great teachers and certainly keeps their minds working and ticking. Thank you to all the teachers who help and support our students continue to learn.

My daughter is a 7th grader at SPMS. I am very pleased with the quality of teachers, the curriculum and the extracurricular activities (she did band and step and will try-out for cheerleading in April.) The faculty seems genuine and Dr. Farmer is very visible.

I have a child attending SPMS now and I have two children who have been through SPMS. All three love SPMS. The teachers are more than just educators. They want to teach these children and help them develop into something special. These teachers and the Administrators love these kids, and it really shows. Keep up the good work SPMS

I would just like to say, my daughter had attended Paulding county schools sence kindergarden. 6yrs ago. The new attendance laws just not right I don't agree with them {law} at all. I'm very thankful I've choosen to do homeschooling. My children get love, education, etc. from homeschooling, space to be themselves. I don't think I could have made a better decishion. 'Homeschooling is where the heart is'.

The administrative staff is very visible at this school. By being visible, the discipline problems are handled before it becomes a school wide problem. The teachers are of excellent quality and genuinely care about their students. Great Job SPMS!
