Highpoint Christian Academy5

I was so sad to move my daughter to another school with our recent move to East Cobb. The moment I went to tour the facility, I had the warmest feeling and knew this was the place for her. The staff were all so warm and welcoming. Don't send your child here if you don't want them to be hugged. These are some very loving people that truly care about each and every child that they care for and teach. I will miss their smiling faces and the fact that every day when I left my child there, I had nothing to worry about. I highly recommend Highpoint Christian Academy to any parent that is looking for a safe, loving, Christian-based learning environment for their child.
This is my 3rd year that my son has attended Highpoint and I believe that the curriculm is accelerated and my son has learned a lot from his teachers. They received the school of excellence award last year and the staff is always informing me of any changes that are needed to make my child perform better including discipline tactics. I would refer anyone to this school if they are looking for excellence from their child.
We as parents so often want to blame some one else, i found HighPoint to be a very good school and they do care about the children, teachers go beyound the basics they also try to teach your child respect for others,something that will also be needed in the REAL WORLD .
My husband and I were not happy with this school at all. Their main focus was discipline and not education and did not showing any caring or love towrds the children. I was very involved, coming or calling the techers and the direcor to address the needs of my daughter. I was ignored and basically told that she was 'hard headed and disrespectful' and just needed her butt wooped. They never listened to any of our suggestions to make it better and were very judgemental. They also do not have an adequate play are for the kids. Just a parking lot. I removed our daughter and enrolled her in another private school in Smyrna where she has not experienced any of the problems or issues that she did here. I would not recommend this school.
