    "KIPP South Fulton Academy, I am a new parent of a 5th grader and have enjoyed the experience thus far. I am hoping the level of expectation remains consistent and that my child is learning at a level that will make her successful in her years after KIPP. I would like to see some renovations take place, the classrooms are very dim and the school could use more natural light. Have a huge fundraiser so you can renovate, get the parents involved with this activity and make it happen."

    "I am a parent at KSFA. This is my son's second year here. I selected this school because I wanted him to be around other students who are focused on college. Our fifth grade experience was outstanding. In sixth grade there have been challenges with teacher communication, but the dean has been very receptive to my concerns. She noted that communication was already on their radar and I have noticed that it has greatly improved. The school has the best test scores in the area. The teachers are extremely dedicated. The principal is kind, nationally recognized and is always willing to listen to parents. Is it a perfect school? No. No such thing exists :) But KSFA is a good school and according to norm referenced tests, it is the top KIPP school in metro Atlanta, the top middle school in South Fulton, one of the top middle schools in Fulton County and one of the top middle schools in all of metro Atlanta. It is definitely worth checking out if the school culture (extended hours, uniforms, etc.) fits your family."

    "I am the father two boys that one is a current 6 grade student and the other attended all four years at Kipp South Fulton and has gone on to boarding school and is doing good. I am extremely happy and proud that my wife found out and researched the Kipp Schools years ago before our first son attended. This has proved to be one of the best decisions that has and will continue to positively impact our family. I am confident that this school along with other Kipp schools will continue to prepare their students for high school and college."

    "I am a parent to a former 6 grader at (KIPP South Fulton Academy) - just withdrawn today Monday, October 29, 2012. This is a charter school that needs to have its entire (2011-2012) 6th grade team and administration removed from the school. The teachers yell all day at the children and reprimand the students for anything. The students aren't allowed to express themselves verbally without points being deducted which will place the child in the fire station and have their privileges revoked. Students are put in the hall if they don't turn in home work the next day. This model is unacceptable for a charter school. The teachers are LAZY. They expect the students to go over assignments on-line that have not been covered in the classroom. I have contacted the Fulton County Superintendent, Board Members and KIPP Executive Director regarding this authoritative style of teaching and bullying from the 2011-2012 6th grade team. I am asking that a full investigation and audit of this school take place immediately. No child should be treated this way. Every child s day should begin with a smile, not a frown."

    "This is my daughter's first year at KSFA and I can honestly say that this appears to be a great school that has thus far met all my expectations. I have never seen seen my daughter so motivated to complete her homework and learn new things. The school sets high standards for their students and parents which is greatly appreciated. The comunication as been great between parents and teacher's. The principlal, Mr. Pryor, takes the time each morning to greet all the students and tries to know each of them by name. As a parent, I have have been very impressed about what I have seen so far and looking forward to the rest of the school year."
