Open Quote This is my son's freshman year at SHS and we love it. I have a Master's Degree, my husband has a bachelor's so education is important to us. So far we have been very pleased and he loves high school. The block schedule (4 classes a semester) has been terrific for him, easier to manage than 7 classes. The upside of the block schedule is the kids get to explore different academic and elective classes and graduate with 4 classes beyond what is required. We have been very impressed with his teachers and the involvement of the principal. We have become active in the PTSA. We've looking forward to the next three years and would encourage others in East Cobb to join us at SHS. 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.
