This school is just OK. We went to the Title I meeting and the presentation was just a bunch of graphs and numbers using a PowerPoint Presentation. Nothing was explained in depth, speaker just kept reiterating "we need them to do better". Everything just seemed very remedial. Front Office is great, and the teachers speak... depending on what day it is. Just a very "some timing" school. My son's 3rd grade teacher is very militant, however, my other son's kindergarten teacher seems to really care. With the right guidance and a change in some of the staff, this school could be great.
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.
This school need's a lot of work.They do have soom good teacher's that really care about the well -being of the kids then they have some that just don't care. Pta and events they have in the school are never put to gether no one seem to be on the same page when planning events.This school does not do a good job on discipline kids that need to be discipline.The principla Frank Turner need to resign b/c he do not do a good job at all never return parent's call or allway's to busy will get back with you.This school need a lot of inprovement.
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.
