Decent at what? He is more than decent. He is excellent at lying, cheating, etc.

Reed is the most honest principal in Pike County. He is a wonderful guy who I have known since he was in High School sitting in my classroom.

Speaking as a parent, I love Reed. He is a wonderful principal, better than Wagner. I've had to talk to him several times with things going on at school, and he handles it well. He's so laid back.

Mullins....Lets take a good look at it, It was the worse. Now is great, why, same old staff, Whats changed, A new building and now its all great. You ppl get real. You people think its better than JC just because they got a new school and you wants your kids to look better in a new building.

What changed Mullins wasn't the building, but the principal. He changed a lot when they hired him in. My oldest child went to both schools, and I see no difference in the way that both schools are administered. Not to mention that I have subbed at both. Mullins is no better than Johns Creek. I can remember when Phillip was a student teacher at Johns Creek, I was a student then. You teach from what you've learned and experienced.

The best man that I have ever met in my whole life. Reed is a man of integrity, honesty, great values, and he only wants to see all kids treated equal. The board made sure Mullins has everything because they like Phillip but they don't like Reed so they wouldn't piss on him. I miss Johns Creek and the faculty and staff.

Parents who could not care less about their kids education are transferring their kids to Mullins simply because they feel they "need a fresh start." A fresh start meaning they may get the boy they want or start in sports or become prom king or queen. Now Mullins is going to make it right. Ridiculous! Reed Adkins has nothing to do with the students transferring to Mullins. The parents are at fault and are the ones who are destroying their own kids and are too stupid to see it. Education should be the focus and teaching your child they need to stay put when thing don't go their way is a valuable lesson to teach a child when you love them. I feel sorry for the Mullins teachers and staff. Parents who think their kids should get everything instead of earning is so burdensome for all parties involved.

Johns Creek is an excellent school, has excellent teachers, has an excellent staff and has an excellent principal. Send your kid to Mullins. I am sure it is an excellent school as well, but do not get on here and degrade others who want to remain at Johns Creek with "anybody who is anybody" has already moved their children. The "anybody" may just be an "anybody" in their own little world. Delusions of grandeur!

Reed is a good man and so is Phillip. Those guys work well together and you see it each year. I can't speak to Johns Creek but I am quite familiar with Mullins. You can say Mullins gets everything because BOE likes Phillip and I am sure they do but that's a discredit to him and his staff to insinuate they are successful only because the BOE likes Phillip. Ask those who know Mullins well and they will tell you the time, effort, and dedication Phillip has for his kids is unbelievable. I would stack him against any principal in the state in regards to instruction and student development . If my child was school age again . I would have him at Mullins . But Pike Central is getting stronger due to the work that Phillip AND Reed do together . As far as saying kids go to Mullins so they can be starters in sports and get what they want truly shows you don't know how Mulllins operates.

Well I just tell you, you won't have a better Principal than Reed Adkins. The man is all business when it comes to his students and he really cares for them. To be from Greasy, it is amazing how bright and intelligent that he really is.

I have a child at Mullins and I love the school and Phillip. I also know for a fact that lots of students leave Johns Creek and go to Mullins because they are not making the team or playing as much as they want but when the get to Mullins they get just as much bench time as always. I know of kids who have left Mullins to go to JC and left JC to come to Mullins but I've never heard anyone say it's because of the education. I know of kids switching this coming year because of getting feelings hurt. The bottom line is do what you think is best for your child and keep your mouth shut. As far as Reed Adkins goes I've heard nothing but good about him except for the ones who didn't get their way (students and staff) and got mad and left.

He is the most sorry piece of crap principal ever. He let's his brats run wild. They get away with bullying other children and some how they are always the stars of the school programs. Reed is a bully. He threatens children with north point. He lies about everything. He promises children with inflatables and school trips that NEVER have. Parents pay more for sports then any other school. There isn't any kind of fundraising for children who's parents can't afford sports. Also the Test scores are at an all time low and attendance isn't much better. The list could go on and on. We as parents need to stand up for our children and call the boe and demand another principal. One that isn't a big JOKE.

Anyone who believes one statement of this should stop by the school Monday and talk to Mr. Adkins. He will be there and I can promise you not one thing in this post is true. If you have a child at JC and you are not happy then you should leave. If you don't have a child at JC support the principal you have and leave ours alone.

At EC the teachers are encouraged to cheat on test scores. Lots of pressure. Been going on for years.
