Great teachers, Nice staff. Thrilled with the advances my daughter has made since starting at Piney Branch.

The initial principal hired a great staff. The staff remains. The current principal lacks interpersonal skills. She also has questionable judgement and management skills. Both self contained autism classes were removed due to her poor leadership. The AP that was there in 2013-14 was fantastic and a great balance for the qualities the principal lacked. I am not surprised that she left since the principal is not good.

The school has only been open since 2011, but there has been an administrative change - either the Principal or the AP - EVERY year since it's been open. Many parents are concerned with this constant transition. It's very challenging at the school to get answers over concerns. The administration, especially Principal Herritt, tend to run back to higher-ups at the Kelly Leadership Center for direction before they'll answer any concerns. We are lucky to have excellent teachers, an excellent support staff, and parents who give a darn - even though we could use more parent volunteers. Let's hope the next AP is parent-friendly, and isn't simply a pawn who has already drank the Walts' Kool-Aid. Just call me a dreamer...

Overall the school is good regarding teachers and other staff, like the office staff. They are all friendly and my child has gotten a good education. However administration lacks a lot. Herritt only appears to care about test scores and finances. I doubt she even knows my child's name. I am hopeful that she will leave next year and someone else will take her place!

Piney Branch is very well organized from the administration, down to the teachers. Each teacher I've been involved with has been very easy to communicate with and my kids have loved school since the 1st day on. There's a lot programs for kids to get involved with too, like robotics, cheerleading, math, sports. There is a lot of community support and ways for parents to get involved as well.
