    My child attends this school and I must say I wouldn't recommend my do to this school. I even heard that the 7th grade Lindley is worse. My child has ADHD so he level of functioning is not of that of a normal child and they treat him as if they dont have the passion to teach him. The teachers get smart with you when you come and try to help make things smoother for your child's learning environment which is something that has turned me off about that school. If a teacher gets smart with you in front of your child imagine how they treat your child when you are not there. This is my child's 1st year there and he didn't get situated in a class until the middle of the semester. His grades goes up and down and you have to stay on the teachers about your childs work. One thing I do like if the Pinnacle website to monitor your childs grades and assignments. The only thing I do not like about the Pinnacle is that some teachers never put their grades up. I called to check on that matter and I was told that the teacher teaches over 150 children so her grades wont go in probably until school is over. My child is special education also and they are not working with him on that level.

    Lindley s Principal Mr. Brown is very passionate about his school and has an immediate goal for your child to excel! As far as the teaching staff; I cannot say the same; it seems as if the teachers are stressed out and lack the passion for students to achieve. The students have recognized that depending on the teacher s personal mood; it will determine the amount of classroom teaching received. It is unfortunate that students must ask the teacher to teach them. But when the teacher is in a good mood the classroom teaching is exceptional. Overall I have enjoyed my experience at Lindley 6th Grade Academy but I also have to spend a lot of time providing additional teaching lesson to my student at home in order to keep their grades above average.

    Unfortunately the teaching my child received was very unprofessional at Lindley 6th grade Academy. If you think your child will do well in a military school Lindley 6th grade Academy is the school for you. If you have a child with autism ADHA or anything similar to that monitor closely what goes on at that school. The school staff told me they are running a strict school and my autistic child s behavior was not acceptable. This was the worst experience I have ever had with a school. My autistic son attended only for 7 days and I was extremely disappointed with the lack of responsibility and knowledge on autism. My autistic child cries and screams every time we pass by the school now. I recommend that the Department of Education investigate the school. My son is attending a private school now and he is doing wonderfully with no problems.

    I love Lindley 6th Grade Academy. Not only did I love it but so did my son. This is a great transition to Middle School from Elementary School. The teachers/staff and the principal Mr. Brown are all Excellent with the children. The school has gender base classrooms as well as co-ed. The teachers in the gender based classes know exactly what the particular gender needs to learn effectively.

    I have been unexpectedly surprised by the wonderful experience at Lindley 6th Grade Academy. I was hesitant to send my child to the school based on community chatter. However I have a totally different experience. Mr. Brown has made a remarkable impact on his teachers students parents and community. The teachers are caring engaging and eager to teach our children. The curriculum is challenging (I was concerned about this). Developing the 6th grade academy is the best thing Cobb County School System could do for the children of Mableton. I only pray the experience at the 7th & 8th grade middle school lives up to our 6th grade experience.
