The current governing board must step aside immediately so that the PTA can try and save this school from closure. Shame on their obstructionist activities which smacks of malfeasance and an attempt to block transparency. Only THREE OF THE SEVEN board member even bother to show up to any meetings. They have zero motivation to fight to keep the school open. THE GOVERNING BOARD MUST STEP ASIDE SO THAT THE PTA CAN SAVE THIS SCHOOL.

I LOVE SCHOLARS BECAUSE THE STAFF IS LOVING, CARING AND THEY EMBRACE ALL OF THEIR STUDENTS. THEY OFFER FREE TUTORING TO ALL OF THEIR STUDENTS TO IMPROVE TEST SCORES. THEY MAKE LEARNING FUN AS IT SHOULD BE. I HAVE TRIED CLAYTON COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOL AND MY GRANDDAUGHTER HATED THE SCHOOL. SHE LOVES ATTENDING SCHOLAR AND SHE FEELS LOVED THERE. SO TELL ME WHAT PARENT CAN ASK FOR MORE? AS A PARENT, YOU WANT YOUR CHILD TO FEEL SAFE AND KNOW THAT SHE IS LOVED AND CARED FOR IN YOUR ABSENCED. WAY TO GO SCHOLARS!!!!!!

The school has the capacity to be so much more. We the right leadership it can be. They do have some teacher who care but majority. The Administration needs to focus in the right direction - School supply (books, ect.) and return to basic.

CHALLENGING, PRODUCTIVE & FUN LEARNING ENVIRONMENT! Forget the fancy building & lush playground- what you see is so much more than what you get! Teachers & Admin are energetic ,caring & patient. Sadly, there are parents who constantly complain about petty things. These parents break their necks to pay for field trips/parties, but will not volunteer their time or $ to help the school. FYI, Scholars has a thin budget & IT IS crucial for everyone to work together to raise necessary $ to improve all aspects of the school. This is a CHOICE school. If you want students to succeed, start with your own child. Volunteer time & $ to enhance the efforts of Scholars. BTW, 3rd grade teachers dynamic; kindergarten teachers interactive; Gifted program forever challenging its students; 5th grade steadily prepping for middle school; Special Education program small but very caring & productive. I trust my children's education to the foundations that I laid at home first & to Scholars. Scholars has made AYP for the last 2 or 3 years! Don't let a negative review steer you away from looking into this school. It 'snot perfect, but it's a good choice! GRATEFUL & LOYAL PARENT:)

I salute all teachers at Scholars Academy!!!! The communication is excellent and this is very important to me as an involved caring parent. My son previously went to Lee Street and I was not pleased with the poor communication from some of his teachers. I also did not like the ghetto environment and mentality. My son is in the gifted program for the 3rd year straight and he is doing extremely well at Scholars Academy. I feel that he is being challenged. His behavior and attitude is also on point.

My hats go off to the teachers at scholars academy. This is a rare bunch! They are clear of their responsibility and care for and teach the children with a surrogate mindset. They are absolutely amazing!!! The administration on the other hands in horrible! They are not professional nor do they know what they are doing. Most parents are pulling their kids while waiting for the other shoe to drop. They lost alot of great teachers, teh former board chair, and pta president all who implemented strong, positive changes for them to move forward and of course they didn't use any of it! The organization of the 2 field trips they had were done poorly and the afterschool program is a joke! The school is broke! My kids will not be returning. The entire board needs to be removed and the seats filled with productive, serious citizens who understand that children are 1st! This is even more reason why the teachers get a virtual hi-5! Dealing with all of that disorganization has to be a dozzie. Pathetic! SMH... P.S. The stars are for the teachers! ********* You may want to look at them personally to hire as private tutors!

I wish I could give this school a 10*! Words cannot explain the whole experience this year 2010-2011. They had some problems with administration but they cleaned it up and keep moving the shift was made without interfering with the schools structure. His teacher was Ms. Smallwood and he spent time with Ms. Reynolds, Ms.Rice and Ms. DuBoise which are all now close to our hearts. Scholars is ran closer to a private school environment without the tuition, I am so glad I had this option available at Lee St. I feel as though my child had no chance. At Scholars my son had concepts of multiplication where the students at Lee St. were still mastering number relations and addition.he is now reading chapter books leaving out of kindergarten while the students who attended the neighborhood school are still doing level one and pre-reading.
