Open Quote Currently a senior.
Dirty school. Rats and cockroaches are so common,
Bad students. Very negative about learning and others. Bullying and harassment is very common.
Administration. Only do their jobs when they see things happening. If you report bullying or harassment, they'll only listen to one side of the story and biasly determine it from there. Will not listen to you even if you have proof or witnesses as long as the other side creates a false sob story. Will not let you call in the witnesses either because of the boohoo sad story :(( will need multiple visits to report things
Some bad teachers.

Great marching band. We're the best in GA.
Talented sports teams. Only thing we're good at. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
