Open Quote The school is a great learning environment. The teachers are dedicated to the students and with parent involvement your kids will excel. They have programs that are not available at other schools and it is one of the best kept secrets in Cobb. The test scores are skewed and not an accurate view of the things that this school offers. My kids can just be kids and they are nurtured in an inclusive leaning environment. That's exactly what they need at this age. Close Quote

Open Quote The school so damn nasty Close Quote

Open Quote Floyd teachers and staff are dedicated to their students. Technology plays a part in every classroom, tutoring is provided before and after school, teachers dedicate time to provide extracurricular activities with clubs and art/music programs - art club, chess club, robotics, Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl, photography club, chorus, environmental wellness club, and more. Student interests are encouraged and supported with Hispanic Heritage, Black History Month, and Floyd's Got Talent events. Floyd boasts TWO teachers chosen for recognition as 11 Alive Class Acts: Mrs. Eva Miano and Ms. Gennie Shelton. Community involvement includes yearly school-wide participation in fundraising for Rely for Life. Floyd students go on to high school, magnet programs, college and career training… and we come back to Floyd. We return to share our experiences, successes, and sometimes our struggles with people we know are always in “our corner” and love us. Close Quote

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

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.
