A good scchool only benifits you if the teacher can accomodate your childs needs. If the child is behind a bit or ahead (90% of the class), a 24yo teacher with no children of her own is useless. (The principal is new as of last year so I can not comment.) I do know that I pay alot to live here in 'East Cobb' and my child is being schooled in a trailer...hmmm.

My daughter attended Sope Creek 1st - 5th grades. She really enjoyed the school and really loved all her teachers. I think that there is too much parent involvement, the teachers and staff are there to do there job not get harassed by some of the parents.

My son started at Sope Creek this fall. Academically, I am impressed. Constructive criticism would be TOO BIG. It is virtually impossible to interact with the teachers unless you volunteer frequently. If you have questions about small things: homework assignments,etc. You are out of luck unless you send a note to school and are lucky to get a response. There is no directory, so if your child wants to have a friend over to play...pull out your private eye skills and figure out who they are and how to find the parents. On the other hand, my child has always been shy and reluctant to go to school and now can't wait until monday morning.

This is an excellent school. I volunteer there a lot and am well impressed with the discipline and expectations of the teachers and students. My daughter started K this past fall and learning at an incredible rate. The teachers mean business and the students respond. A++++

I think as far as ratings/scores Sope Creek is an excellent school. Needs improvement socially as far as socializing with parents. The staff in the office is very unattentive.
