My kids attend this school, one in the 5th grade & the other in kindergarten we moved from New York to Georgia a year ago & lived in Stone Moutain for a couple of months & I was so disappointed in the school system there but when we moved to Riverdale & my kids started Pounte South my hopes were restored. The school indeed immediately reminded me of their previous school in Long Island NY they're very organized & thorough, the teachers Invest highly in the students' education. They have home work everyday & parents involvment is very important. My son whose in the 5th grade remains on the honor roll & loves this school. I would give the principal & Staff an A, for striving to make this school what it has become.

My child has attended pointe south for 2yrs. coming from a private school. This is an adaquate school and the teachers thus far has been great with pushing the students and communicating with the parents about their childs progress. However, the principal Mr. Tanner doesn't communicate well with the parents, when there is an issue that needs attn. My only issue is the principal not hearing the concerns that the parents may have about their children progress.

Been a Pointe South parent for over 4 years now, and I think it is a wonderful school offers quality education to their students. The PTA is great, so are the students.

I think this is an excellent school that does not get the credit that it deserves. As compared with other schools in the area, this school is performing up to standards.

Pointe South elementary School is a fairly decent school. The school seems to be too cliquish and allowed favorite children to to go to favorite teachers, there's too many teacher children that attends and others tend not to get a fair shake. This problem needs to be addressed and nuetralized because it's getting too far out of hand.

My child has attended this school for 2 years.I find that the school needs to have some type ofrecess not just P.E. twice a week as a special.Burn the energy more attention in class.Lunch should be socializing time not drill time. Office personnel knows nothing always and receiving upcoming events should be issued at least a week before the event not the day of. No I.D. check for car riders.No field trips.

I have only had good experiences with this school. The teaching staff and adminstrators are very eager to assist in any problem I have had. My child came from a school that I had problem after problem with adminstrators and teachers. This school was a refreshing break from what I had been through.

This School has decreased my childs learning skills and drive to exceed and attend school due to the inconsistencies in administration. The school counselor has shown to be unconcerned with my childs development, as well as safety, I've made several requests for conferences to no avail no conference, spoke w/ the assistant Principal request conference 'will speak w/child and follow up' no action to date, unruly children do pass on to higher grades in this school. Teachers and admin tend to unfavorably label the working parents children. I will be tranferring my child to another school.
