I just started attending this school for 8th grade and I've got to say it's absolutely wonderful!! The education Level is different for each student, and their are caring Teachers that will actually take the time to work with you Individually unlike at my old school. Great atmosphere!

I actually attended Poynter Middle School and i can only say i was more than dissapointed. Some of the teachers are really nice while others create an unwelcoming atmosphere in the classroom. The 7th grade math teacher that i had not only brought down my confidence but also made me fall behond because of her teaching methods. All she did was read out of the book and did no explaing, i was left to teach myslef! If you want your kid to have a amazing education then this is not the place! Also the school's air quality cause me health problems such as asthma and once i left the problems dissapeared. The kids are super nice its just the school thats the problem. Do your child a favor and avoid Poynter Middle School.

The teachers are in good contact with you if you initiate the phone call or email. Grades are available whenever I request them. I can monitor my daughters grade just by emailing the teacher for grades or missing assignments. When my daughter is sick or missing a day of school, she is able to email her teachers and they give her homework through email. Excellent school with EXCELLENT staff.

The early intervention program at Poynter left little to be desired. Little contact with the teachers and lack of attention paid to our child.

My son absolutely loves this school. The teachers care about the students and have helped my son advance. They teach at a level the students understand and most of the teachers are excited about the subject/s they are teaching. Character is very important to staff and students alike. This school has a pleasant atmosphere when you walk through the halls, unannounced.
