Principal's Message

Welcome Message from Principal M. Sean Costa

Greetings Pirate Families! 

We are excited to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year at Stone Mountain High School. We have an amazing year planned and we can achieve anything if we all work as a team. Communication is crucial to our team working efficiently. Please see some important information as we approach the school opening on August 7.

  • Please see below for the list of bus routes and times for morning pick up.
  • Open House is from 12-4 PM on August 3. We will hold PTSA elections on this date as well. If you are interested in being a PTSA officer, please contact Principal Costa at [email protected]. Elections will occur at 1:00 PM. Come see the school, meet faculty and staff, and get your questions answered.
  • We are a clear backpack school. Please only buy backpacks that are clear, no mesh. We will be giving away over 200 backpacks with supplies to parents who join PTSA ($10), complete Annual Verification, Digital Dreamers Parent Consent and the 2023-2024 School Lunch application at Open House. You will receive a ticket upon completing each step during Open House. More info to come.
  • If you know of a family that has registration questions, call our registrar at 678-676-6306. You can also register online at 

Let's have an amazing year. Remember that PIRATES are Proud, Intellectual, Respectful, Aspirational, Timely and Engaged students. There is nothing a Pirate cannot do or become. This is our year!


Your partner,
M. Sean Costa,
