    "Hi, I'm a former 8th grader heading to the 9th (CLASS OF 2018)!!! Anyways, I attended PSMS for only the 2013-2014 school year, so I don't really have much to say about the 6th and 7th grade teachers. I have mixed feelings about my experience here as an 8th grader. There were alot of fights,(as everyone expects), but the teachers did their job well. It's the students who always blame the teachers for their bad grades in class. From the things I've heard, next school year things should be loads better than they were this year. Teachers and the administrators have been cracking down on violence tremendously, and I only see PSMS becoming better. In my opinion, PSMS its better than North Clayton Middle, Riverdale Middle, and Forest Park Middle, (violence wise). I believe Sequoyah Middle is one if the best middle schools in the county if your looking to send your child to a school that doesn't have alot of violence, and will receive a great education. Pointe South isn't that bad either, so I totally recommend sending your child here. Especially since there will be major improvements next year, which I hate they didn't implement this year."

    "I have the same feelings and thoughts that a lot of other parents have about this school the teachers act like they care so much about your kids when your talking to them on the phone or in person but really they only care about there petty little pay checks and as far as there ways of talking to your children is beyond ghetto and ignorant I think this school hires the teachers from the bottom of the hiring list that no other school wants I feel bad for the parents that don't investigate what area this school falls in and there kids are subjects to this lower level of education PLEASE SAVE YOUR KIDS ITS NOT A JOKE THIS SCHOOL IS ONE OF THE WORST SCHOOLS MY KIDS HAVE EVER WENT TO SAVE YOUR KIDS MOVE INTO A DIFFERENT SCHOOL DISTRICT THE ONLY REASON I PUT 5 STAR CAUSE IT IS FORHOW MANY STARS TO CLOSE THIS SCHOOL DOWN"

    "This school is average. My child is a 6 grader at Pointe South Middle. I have no complaints regarding the admin staff nor the teachers. If you are unsatisfied with what you see / receive from Pointe South please discuss this matter with your child and your neighbors. A Good education begins at home."

    "My son did not come home as scheduled, so I called the school to see if he was there. They said my son is not there. I called back for them to tell me my son is there. No one looked him up in the system to call me. No one offered to call the bus. I find the employees at Point South Middle School lazy and unorganized!On Wednesday I called the school to inform them no one gave my son bus information so he could start taking the bus and that for today I will be still picking him up. I was then asked my address because there is no information in the system under my son's name giving her the address. I called in to see where my son is to pick him up and she stated I'm sorry I thought you wanted him to ride the bus so I told him to get on the bus.On Friday I go to enroll my son in school and there is no power and the sign says to return Monday. I return Monday they tell me I have to come back after 12:30. I have never in my life come across a school this unorganized. Some new policies need to be in place and proper training for the staff on how to handle certain situations."
