High Point Mission Statement
High Point Elementary cultivates compassionate, knowledgeable, and inquiring learners who impact a diverse global community.
GMAS Informational Session February 28th
High Point Elementary is thrilled to announce we are now recognized as an official International Baccalaureate World School!!!! The IB World Programme focuses on "teaching students to think critically and independently, and how to inquire with care and logic." We have been developing our students' character through the attributes of the Learner Profile (caring, risk-taking, open-minded, balanced, knowledgeable, etc..) as well as offering Spanish as a second language to all students K-5. We believe this program is an important step towards growing our students as a future world citizen!
This is not only a significant achievement for our school but also for our community. Along with High Point, Heards Ferry Elementary and Lake Forest Elementary have also been authorized. Therefore, the Riverwood Cluster, which also includes Ridgeview Charter Middle and Riverwood International High School, is a PK-12 feeder pattern of International Baccalaureate World Schools and the first in Fulton County!!

Thank you for your commitment to our school. We could not have done this without all of your dedication and support!!!
High Point will be electing 1 parent representative to serve on the School Governance Council. We will be electing the parent/guardian during our spring election. Our School Governance Council has a leadership role in the governance of the school. The Council works with the principal in setting the long-term vision and strategy for the school. They are responsible for approving the school’s strategic plan and budget recommendations, as well as designing innovative solutions to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community.
Elections for the parent/guardian position on the School Governance Council will be held March 11th – March 18th. Candidates interested in running for an elected position on the Council must complete a candidate declaration form and submit by February 20th.
Candidate forms may be submitted electronically or by mail (get a copy of the form from the school’s front office and follow mailing instructions on the back of the form).
