Q: Are you satisfied with the way your local schools are being run?

Asked at several locations where parents gather in Sandy Springs

“I think they’re great. I’ve been here for a very long time, kindergarten through seventh grade. I’ve never regretted putting my child in public schools.”
Natalie Puhrmann
“I have no problem with public schools. I think parental input is utmost. Being there for your children, with your children.”
Andee Shapiro
“I have a fifth grader here. We’ve had the best experience you could ask for. High Point (Elementary School) has the best teachers around, a great principal and a community of parents that cares about schools.”
Laura Kruglewicz
“We moved from Florida and came from a large school. I like the class sizes here. There’s a great staff. I love Ridgeview (Charter School) and both schools are very diverse which gives our kids a great advantage.”
Nancy Thielen
“I feel the schools are far better in the Northeast. I look at it not by county, but where we are as a state and that is not appealing to me.”
Angela Brown
“Everyone seems to think our local high school and elementary school are excellent. There’s so much parental involvement at Heards Ferry Elementary.”
