Open Quote This is a wonderful school. The teachers are wonderful, the new principal is great and the kids seem to be flourishing. There is a very active Foundation that makes sure the school is able to accomplish goals underfunded by the county, e.g., a new library. Close Quote

Open Quote We moved from a "top rated" school in Smyrna.We are so blessed to be at Sope Creek where the kids are respected and call it their "happy place". This school is night and day in comparison to their prior school. The kids grades are wonderful and they finally love to go to school and learn! We are privileged to be a part of Sope Creek!

Open Quote If you are a parent obsessively scouring the internet for information about public schools, I am writing this for you. Good parents agonize over every tidbit of data, ranking, test score, demographic, and unfortunately, “review” they can find. Intuitively, we all know online reviews are of dubious value. It doesn’t take much experience to know (1) some people cannot be satisfied, and (2) the most vocal reviewers tend to be disgruntled. So, with that, I come to my thoughts about Sope Creek, which I hazard are shared by the great majority of parents. Look at the data, come visit the school, talk to people, see for yourself. Sope Creek is an excellent school. The faculty and administration are intelligent, responsive, caring, and dedicated. The curriculum is challenging and enriching. Our children attend school with well behaved, engaged kids. The list of parent volunteers in our daughter’s class was pages long. We have no doubt our children will be well prepared for the rigors of Dickerson Middle and Walton High School. My wife and I are well educated professionals. We could have paid for private school, but with public schools like these in East Cobb, for us it was a no-brainer. Close Quote

Open Quote Unfriendly and disrespectful administration, teachers and staff. We had horrible experience at sope creek. They don't care about children and treat the parents with disrespect. Please stay away Close Quote

Open Quote My 3rd child is approaching the last year of going through Sope Creek, and I am so glad this has been our school! The administration and staff have been professional, helpful, and accessible. I believe they have all received a quality education because the teachers really care about the kids and are skilled in their profession. My children have loved this school! Close Quote

Open Quote Very sterile and unfriendly. Principal is aloof, unapproachable, and seems unconcerned about children. Test scores down in recent years. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
