Open Quote I have seen my child blossom throughout their matriculation at Druid Hills Middle - academically and socially. The teachers rally around the students and the idea of critical thinking, plus learning to build a foundation of success. Bravo! Close Quote

Open Quote This school was enough to make me move straight back to Gwinnett County. Disorganized. Thanks for letting me know parent teacher conferences are the day before they happen. Do you expect us not to have jobs? My child saw more fights in one year at this school than all of her years in Gwinnett combined. I feel as if I have done a disservice to my child and her education. I just am hoping that she is not too far behind at the beginning of this school year now that she is returning to a place that actually cares....... Close Quote

Open Quote I would not recommend for any parent to send their child to this school. The majority of the problems in this school are fights and in-class behavior. I was in a high achievers class and it was horrible. Everyday there would be a problem with students shouting or talking back to the teacher. The teacher would have to spend the rest of the time in class to quiet down the class, and it really bothered me because I could not even concentrate. Although the students behavior is bad, the teachers are all very helpful and they have a great tutorial program. Sorry for the poor rating. Close Quote

Open Quote I’m glad that I sent my child to this school. The school and teachers are very good about promoting IB values with an excellent program that stresses: being principled, open-minded, inquirers, knowledgeable etc. My son has required a good deal of attention from the school and his teachers – mostly because of his organizational problems. Teachers, counselors, and administrators have been very willing to work with him on this. The instruction is very good as are the extracurricular activities. This year the administration was awarded two grants that will help them with some of their more difficult educational challenges. Testing data does not provide a good measure of how much this school does for its students. Close Quote

Open Quote Some teachers who direct traffic for parent pickup/drop off is disorganized and just rude. One of them banged on the roof of the car while shouting to move. 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.
