Open Quote I was not pleased with the Dance Magnet program. Close Quote

Open Quote I am a grandparent of a former Visual Arts student in the Magnet program. I was very involved with the teachers and Director of the Magnet program. There is so much talent in that school that I returned as a volunteer to help our kids. The teachers are bringing out the talents that they have and we as parents have to be there to help steer them in the right direction. Communication with the teachers and those in charge is essential. Talking with the kids is essential as well. Tri-Cities encourages the parents to come up to the school and to see for themselves what is going on. I have faith in Tri-Cities. I invite the community to visit and judge for yourself. After all our kids are our future. When they see the parents and community behind them they see something positive.

Open Quote I think Tri-Cities is a great school. The teachers and parents are very supportive and we have a great group of students who do their very best to raise the integrity of the program. We have come a long way to be well known in the arts community and I applaude the effort generated by our teachers, parents and students. Close Quote

Open Quote Tri Cities is a Visual and Performing Arts Magnet High School that has been applauded numerous times for the drama, dance, and band departments. The current principal (Dr. Horton) is doing a wonderful job with the students. Out of all the South Fulton high schools, Tri-Cities is the leader! 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.
