Open Quote While not everything is perfect we had great experiences with our 3 kids Close Quote

Open Quote I can't even say that this school is average. It's way below average and it's heading more in the wrong direction. I don't now where all of the kids come from but there are so many kids at this school who don't live anywhere even close to the school's attendence boundaries. Not a lot of high expectations here with kids walking around in sagging pants and pretty bad behavior. You won't get much communication from the school and thats just how it is all year long. There are some good teachers, but each year more of them ask for transfers. The good families are pulling their kids too and it won't be long before the school is just another DeKalb county warehouse. So sad because Tucker and Smoke Rise are really nice places to live. I don't know why this school has to be so bad when it comes to test scores and the way the kids act. Close Quote

Open Quote My child was enrolled at Tucker Middle. It was the worst experience that I had. Teachers were disrespectful, and virtually non-communicative. The administrators did nothing to improve communication and often refused to respond to inquiries. Many students are not even zoned for the school, and in some cases, bring the school down. In all, the school fails because of its ineffective principal, and poor administrators. The few good administrators leave the school, and the school seems to recycle administrators from other poorly performing schools. 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.
