Open Quote My son has attended McEachern since his sophomore year and is a senior. His experience has been very positive and all of his teachers have been very supportive. He's always feels safe at school, feels he could learn and receives assistance when needed. He takes a good mix of classes, traditional, honors and AP. The school also offers a good selection of pathway courses. Parent approved - 5 STARS! Close Quote

Open Quote This is a great high school, and the campus has a private school or college feel to it. The teachers are attentive and the amenities are great. Our kids entered ahead of grade level on state and national measurements and are still ahead of grade level. Close Quote

Open Quote The McEachern community is a friendly and welcoming one, and as a freshmen this really helps me be able to join the high-school experience on the right foot. The teachers are so far, very knowledgeable and not only teach us what we need to know to be successful in class, but what we need to know to be successful in life as well. McEachern is a well rounded school in general! Close Quote

Open Quote We sold our house and moved to get out of the McEachern district. I can tell you that the education available at McEachern vs Harrison, Hillgrove or Allatoona high schools is not the same. It is "dumbed down" considerably at McEachern in order to keep kids in school and graduate them. Sorry, but it is the hard truth. Close Quote

Open Quote People say this is a bad school. Those people don't know what they're talking about. As a student here, I have seen first hand that you can get a good education here if you want it. You just have to be responsible. 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.
