  • I have had the priviledge to work at this noble institution. The teachers work extremely hard, put in long tiring hours to educate your children and their children.
    Many critics of education have never had a fulltime job as a teacher but they have all the suggestions of how to fix every problem in education. My suggestion is when you have sat in a classroom for a month and done "some" of what a teacher has to do for a year, then I will gladly listen. You need to do this for 1 month fulltime.

    Our educational system will never be any better until we all start to work collectively. Teachers cannot solve the problems in education by themselves. Parents and students need to start sacrificing and putting their 100% too.
    Many of our parents are too caught up making the "dollar" and forget what is important. I agree that familes have to eat and be taken care of but education takes place at home too. Far too many of our middle schoolers are left to the mercies of teachers to succeed with very little or no sacrifice from some of our parents or the kids themselves.
    Do the research for yourself! Behind every successful child is a strong parent. One that sees to it that the child studies, does homework,holds that child accountable for being successful, being in control, makes frequent connections with the teacher.

    Children don't just get up and become motivated. This is a skill they learn from parents who put in the time, work tirelessy, to make sure they are doing what they need to do to succeed.

    Don't sit and wait for the teacher to communicate with you. You initiate if you care that much. Just remember most teacher's have atleast 120 students to account for, not just 1 student with an ungraded paper. Just remember they are humans too not machines! or robots. Even those make mistakes too.

    Are you trying to tell us that the teacher did not apologize for the error in the grade or you are just "ticked' because the grade was entered late?
    Now think about it before you answer. I guess if you are an employee, you must be a perfectionist! Everything is always done ontime. " Get a life folks!

    So you need to be proactive: email the teachers, daily , weekly if you must. It is your child, show the interest in their success or failure. The teacher's are glad to hear from you. One email or phone call to remind him or her of a task is another on that teacher's list of a million things to do at work. So it does not hurt for you to initiate, question, remind the person of something they failed to do.

    Just a rmeinder that teachers may have 1 free period daily for professsional development or meetings or your parent conferences. So the other 7hrs they are teaching or supervisng your kids at lunch. So don't forget, this is not corperate america.

    Some of us in society fail to understand that teachers yet underpaid, have a life too. They have families, some are in school ,after work hours, attending workshops and work the same 8hrs a day where they are enaged with students. Yet when they are off that clock they are expected to find the time to make phone calls, grade papers, enter grades,respond to a million emails within 24hrs, plan lessons which takes hours daily when the average person is in bed sleeping.

    So kudos to the great admiistrators and leadership team at SMS, and many thanks to the hardworking faculty who tirelessly prepare young minds for the future "those that want it". So even though many "don't care, lack motivation. Teachers are expected to be the dream makers for these kids while all some parents do is create gaps in the bridge by complaining and not doing anything to see to it that their children succeed. If you don't have an answer then why should a teacher. Get real

    I am yet to meet an educator who does not want to see each child succeed, irregardless of their rudeness and their parents rudeness. That is why they are the professionals, because they have to take the abuse and still smile and pretend all is well.
    Your children are in a world class school system! Take advantage of it. There are many places around the world that lack the resources. So thanks to GCPS for hiring world class educators that get the job done. I am sure they get frustrated many times when they put in so much and get so little thanks. But I need you all to know, there are people out here that appreciate the great work you all do at SMS. Just admire the graduates at South Gwinnett and watch those kids take the workforce and move into college and we know they will be productive members of society . So that is what you all need to look forward to! Not grumpy, disgruntled parents who try to smear the images of hard working educators and school.
    They made AYP again! Keep on doing the great job SMS.

  • I am a current 8th grader attending Snellville Middle School, and I do not agree with the previous comments mentioned by parents.

    The first parent (February review) claims that Snellville Middle is way too poor for his/her daughter. And the second parent (January) claims that her daughter doesn't get enough attention from the teachers.

    Well, maybe if you were actually a STUDENT at the school, which I AM, you would understand it better. Now, I believe it was the first parent that says that his/her daughter usually got straight A's until reaching this particular school...Yeah, well! Big deal! Maybe she just doesn't like the school, and maybe you moved her to it at, hmmm...let's see, the MIDDLE of the year? No one likes to deal with all that stress of moving and going to a new school system at the same time - because I have gotten straight A's ever since I have been enrolling here, and it's not because of the school! It's because of the teachers and everyone else on the staff who helps out and, also, myself for doing the work and wanting to be educated! If your children were bright enough to ask you to move them to a different team, in which teachers actually TAUGHT correctly, I'm pretty sure that the faculty in charge would do as you request.

    Now, if you'd just stop WHINING about it ONLINE, and actually take some ACTION in REAL life, then I'm sure your children would be much more satisfied.

    Now, I also noticed that both parents stated that they would not bring their child back to Snellville Middle. Well, GOOD! If your kid is going to whine all the time to the parent and not to the faculty, we don't want wimpy kids like that anyways!

    The only complaint that I really have to admit is the class disruption problem. Violence, graffiti, bad language, rudeness, selfishness, and not caring about education has really developed (over the time I've been here) mainly in the African American students, which does not represent a positive message to other African Americans.

    Thank you for having the curiosity and wonder of reading this little review. :D

  • As a concerned parent, I am very involved in and concerned about the quality of my daughter's education. I have relocated to Georgia from Florida and have witnessed a significant difference in the educational system and the education provided. The teachers are less hands on and are less proficient in managing the students grades. Many times the teachers provide parents with progress reports that are inaccurate due to their failure to grade papers in a timely manner, thus the child's report may read 70 but they may have earned a 85, or they may have lost the students work altogether. Many times there is no compassion or understanding, or willingness to meet students where their needs are. This school leaves much to be desired. Thank God my daughter only had to spend one school year here, it was one too many.
