    "I have two students at RSMS. My students moved to RSMS in 6th and 8th grade from north ATL suburbs. It was a huge adjustment. Yes, there are cliques, hard teachers, rich & entitled brats but my kids have been exposed to so many positive experiences and have grown in ways I don't think they would at the big mega schools in Cobb or Cherokee county ga. My kids have formed bonds with their teachers and their test scores are amazing compared to there past school. My advice to any new parent to RSMS is be prepared for some shock with the academics, teachers who will challenge you and your child (LOL) and a culture you can only find in the BUBBLE!"

    "I am a bit disappointed in some of the teachers at this school. Unfortunately, depending on the team the child is placed on, there are big differences in the level of teaching. I wish this wasn't the case but I have seen it first hand. When something is brought up to the new principal, nothing gets done. I wish I could say my child got a 1st rate education, but sadly this isn't the case."

    "Parent involvement is very high. I have issues with a Math teacher at this school, she has many students failing her class but insists it is all the students fault. She does not take any responsibility on herself and becomes argumentative when parents try to speak with her about the issues. I have heard of issue after issue with dress code, depending on who is watching, the kids can get away with wearing just about anything. Other children are given "dress code" for conservative dress. There is no standard for enforcement. I have sent in suggestions but hear nothing back. There are students who cut themselves and show it to other students- where are the teachers? staff? I find it a huge problem if my child comes home stating they can't ask a question in their math class or when they take tests the teacher talks the entire time or the other students are loud and disruptive. When a teacher has students failing a class, something needs to be done and I don't mean blame the students. -Frustrated parent"

    "Rising Starr Middle School-We have had 3 children go through RSMS. The first two are in 10th and 12th grade now, and we have a 7th grader currently there. We almost made the choice to send our 7th grader elsewhere, and are VERY THANKFUL that we did not. RSMS has had AP changes over the last two years. The AP that came in last year (12-13) and is over scheduling and IEP's is ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL & AMAZING!! She cares for kids and will bend over backwards for students and parents. The AP that came in this year (13-14) is also doing a fabulous job with discipline and will not tolerate bullying. He handles kids the right way when they are sent to his office, and contacts parents in a timely manner. We are very happy with RSMS! The teachers our child has had have been remarkable and made our middle school experience almost perfect. The teachers post homework on Edmodo everyday, and respond to questions, and take care of our child in a warm and caring manner. Love this school now! Thanks Fayette County! ~Happy Starr Family"

    "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"
