My daughters have attended this school for three years now and they love it. The administration and staff are friendly. The teachers do an excellent job of meeting students needs whether they are behind, at level, or advanced. The thing I love most about the school is the moral focus. This encourages my daughters to develop their character along with their minds. All in all I am proud to say that South Pointe Scholars has done very well assisting me in the education of my daughters.

I pulled my daughter out of a YPS 3rd grade class in Oct. 2013 and started South point.Her preliminary reading test scored that of a late year first grader. Final test this year her reading score was that of a early year 5th grader. These are NOT doctored numbers as the Detroit Free Press irresponsibly suggests about NHS ,but a serious influence and attitude about education expectation to both parent AND child. If you are not ready to play a roll in your child's education this school is not for you and enjoy your public school daycare..but if your serious about a structured, respectful, high expectation enviroment...this is where you want to be.

This school is operated like a learning institution should be. From the board of education to those keeping it clean, we couldn't be happier. Our children are engaged in a very diverse environment and taught by the best teachers in the area. Keep up the great work.

I find it interesting that the last reviewer talked about not having enough communication! I can't tell you how well South pointe communicates with its families! My kids teacher has a blog that is updated regularly with classroom events plus the regular weekly newsletter that is sent home in the Monday mailers. This is in addition to the school newsletter that Mrs Kouba sends on Mondays and the phone call she makes to everyone on Sunday nights with the weeks upcoming events. Not only is the communication great but the staff makes everyone feel so comfortable. I am always welcome into the school to help or just to visit. If you're looking for a school where your kids will not only be safe but get a terrific eduction, check out South Pointe, you won't be disappointed!

We started this school the first year it opened. Unfortunately we didn't have a good experience. There was no communication between the teacher and myself. We would reach out to the teacher and she would tell us everything was good with our son until the end of the marking period when we would find out there were numerous assignments missing. Sad to say we moved schools and are so happy now.

My daughter started this school the first year they opened in 2012 and not only do I love it, she love it too! The teachers are fabulous and attentive to the needs of individual children and the principal is wonderful as well, maintaining open lines of communications for everyone.

My son is involved in his learning goals and knows what he needs to do to achieve those goals. The school has order and structure that I appreciate and I can tell the teachers do a lot of planning to help my son achieve his goals. I feel confident that my son is safe and can learn in this environment and I don't worry throughout my day.

The is the best school I have ever entered. From the Principal, classroom teachers, special interest teachers, to the M&M after care - They ALL show extreme interest in their students education, success, and happiness. The parents are actively informed of everything going on in school. Its like one big happy family - My girls have fun and its hard to get them to leave at the end of the night. WHAT A GREAT FIRST YEAR - I just know they will be a 5 star across the board!!!

This school has been amazing for our family. I am a widow and have a 2nd grade boy and a third grade boy. When we started at South Pointe I had extreme concerns with the staff and how they would be able to handle my children if there is an emotional breakdown which was happening often during the prior school year at another local charter. During parent orientation I was reassured over and over again that everything will be fine, and they got this. Well, let me just say....BOY DO THEY EVER GO THIS! My children have not had not 1 emotional break down or any major issues at all this year...I am floored and eating my words. I was skeptical at first, as any concerned parent would be. But again I am so amazed at the awesome work of every single staff member there. My children have come a long way both emotionally and with their education. Their scores are the best! One grateful mother :)

This school is fantastic. I have 2 children already attending and 1 more that will attend next year. It is like a family environment. Everyone is friendly and my kids are truly happy to go to school and learn new things. The staff truly cares about the kids as individuals, and the whole school makes an effort to help in the community! Love it!

South Pointe Scholars is an awesome school. When you walk into the building, you feel at home and like you are a part of a big family. Even though SPS is a new school, it doesn't feel new....there is a great culture within the building and the teachers work hard to meet the needs of every student in the building. The school secretaries are top notch - always willing to go above and beyond to help out. The school leadership team (principal and deans) are always in the hallways and classrooms interacting with students. It is evident that they care about the students as well as helping to develop the teachers and the school as a whole. South Pointe Scholars is definately the best school in the area and I would recommend any family to enroll at South Pointe!
