Points of Pride

Intentional Excellence, Centered in Community

A Rich 13-Year History
The Main Street Academy (TMSA) opened its school doors to 563 students on August 23, 2010, the first day of school for the 2010 – 2011 academic school year. Currently, TMSA serves approximately 844 students (K - 8) who reside throughout Fulton County.  

Parental Involvement
In previous years, TMSA’s parents contributed more than 12,000 volunteer hours through events like PTO meetings, field trips, family nights, career days, and classroom activities. TMSA encourages parental involvement and partnership. 

Leader in Me
TMSA is a proud Leader in Me school. Instead of focusing on academic measures along, Leader in Me embodies a holistic approach to education, redefining how schools measures success. 

Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM)
At the core of The Main Street Academy's (TMSA) curriculum is the adoption of the Renzulli Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM). The SEM model seeks daily enrichment in the core curriculum by bringing students into contact with experts and community leaders who explain how education connects to real life experiences. The 2020 – 2021 academic school year will mark the sixth year of TMSA students participating SEM. SEM, currently implemented at over 4,000 schools across the United States and only at TMSA within the Fulton County School System, is an enrichment program for students to enjoy challenging learning experiences constructed around their interests and passions. 

Project Based Learning (PBL)
The Main Street Academy has invested in training and coaching relative to Project Based Learning instructional methods in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to authentic, engaging, and complex questions, problems, or challenges. PBL is connected to each core curriculum area in addition to SEM.
