    "After hearing the negatives of Rising Starr, I hesitated to send my daughter to this school. I was ready to send her to a private school. I thought I'd give it a try at least. I am soooo glad I did! She went from being a very insecure child that only met expectations on the CRCT to becoming a leader and her 8th grade year exceeded expectations on all sections of the CRCT. She really learned to study in her years there and in high school is maintaining A's in all her classes. The teachers at RSMS went above and beyond to embrace my child and let her strengths shine rather than her weaknesses keep her down. Her teachers all 3 years were wonderful and I sing their praises! She was not the most popular kid by any means, but it was the teachers that kept her confidence up. They gave her extra help when she needed it and let her be their helper to boost her confidence and to help her feel needed. This was all done on their own...I didn't ask them to do this! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Rising Starr!!! Ms. Carson, Ms. Gaskins, Ms. Romine, Ms. Lightfoot...all were excellent...just to name a few. Thanks!! Shannon"

    "I've been very disappointed with this school. My 6th grade girl has 5 out of 7 periods where there are a group of boys who are very disrupting. The teachers ask them to stop but to no avail. Kids who want to learn can't concentrate and the staff has no control over their students and will not escalate punishment or removal of these kids. At the lockers they bully the kids and say inappropriate comments to the girls for them to move so they can dominate the space. When reported, nothing happens. PE exactly the same. The class gets punished 3-4 times a week for the handful of disrespectful ones. The school is very large and I believe understaffed. It's a very wealthy school and the kids seem - 6th grade at least -- unsupervised by their parents at home. The shocking language and too mature subjects I've been hearing about are disturbing. If you choose this school, plan to be very involved and know well who your children's friends are. Our group of 7 teachers -- 3 are great, the other 4 cold and unresponsive to parent's concerns."

    "So often the excuse is "middle school is the worst time in anyone's life" and my response is, "why is it tolerated?". There are some great teachers, but if you don't great, you get bad! If your child has issues, good luck getting any services, unless the issue is severe, you are a teachers in the county with a Child that goes to the school for free, or hire an attorney. The teachers do have it pretty good: if a student doesn't understand the information, the parents can teach it or they will hire a tutor. There is also an unwritten uniform: girls have long straight hair, low cut tops, skinny jeans and ugg boots (no knock offs allowed) while boys either sport pants or shorts, tshirts. Anything other than that is not socially acceptable. The light at the end of the tunnel is that it is only 3 years until the real fun in high school. I chose not to send my remaining children to RSMS."

    "I moved to Peachtree City and started 6th-8th grade at RSMS. I personally loved most of the time here, I met some truly outstanding teachers and friends. But the cliques and problems at our school, I have to admit, are ridiculously extreme. If you're not in the 'popular' crowd, you're a nerd, and that's final. We, as students, don't accept people who are different, poor, or intelligent."
