Open Quote Such a sad thing what these people have Not Done to properly educate our students! I bear witness to the fact that the rankings are indeed correct! The staff's communication skills need work. The counselors dropped the ball numerous times in helping our children towards success. That school should be closed down! 😒 Close Quote

Open Quote Staff morale is very low ..Discipline is out of control ..Students has no respect for principal..Principal only concern seems to be issues dont go to county office ..But truth will come to light
I dont fault this man ..He never asked to be here ..He is clearly out of his league when they appointed him ..
They ousted an outstanding principal before him , for sheer political reasons ..now nobody's benefiting from the this but the egomaniacs at the Dekalb County Office 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.
