Open Quote This school does not care for my sons education. They constantly put him in iss and cause him to miss class which lowers his grades. They can’t wait to send him to alternative school for minor offenses and I don’t feel this school cares about my sons education. This school needs teachers that are trained in dealing with children with add or adhd. This school is not and are letting my sons education down everyday. I can’t afford these expensive schools and my son is not being treated fairly and there also forgetting he is left handed. This school has caused me as a parent nothing but worry and emotional stress because there constantly negative about my son. Close Quote

Open Quote The administration was non existent. Students run this school and so do the parents. There are zero consequences for students. Students made sure a teacher was removed from their position and told me i was "next". Rural white racist town with those poor uneducated views. Blue Ridge is a small town that does not welcome "outsiders" or anyone from the "awful" city of Atlanta. The most awful experience teaching here and zero diversity all white with the exact same views. 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.
