    Dear Parents,

    Welcome to North Pointe Elementary!

    I am entering my 23rd year as an educator in Anderson Five.  It has been an incredible journey which began at Varennes Elementary as a first and third grade teacher, then at Midway Elementary where I taught third and fifth grades.  While in the classroom, I became a National Board Certified teacher and Teacher of the Year in 2001.  I spent nine years at Nevitt Forest Elementary as the Instructional Specialist and Assistant Principal.  

    What an honor it is to lead such an exemplary school.  North Pointe truly embodies its mission, "to provide diverse educational experiences that encourage students to think critically, act responsibly, and communicate effectively, in order to become college and career ready."   Our first-class teachers and staff are committed to providing a rigorous, engaging, and individualized instructional program which will challenge students to meet their goals. 

    One critical key to our success is the cooperative relationship cultivated with you, our parents.  I encourage you to become involved through our school's Parent Teacher Organization, or by simply communicating with our teachers and leadership.  I can be reached at or by calling the school office at 864-260-5040.  My door is always open to you!


    Jill S. Gilreath
