Open Quote My child is in the 10th grade. I was not impressed with the 8th grade staff but I truly loved his 6th and 7th Grade teachers. My child was not very vocal but his 7th Grade English teacher who was a very caring person instilled in him the importance of public speaking, my husband and I are forever grateful for that teacher. My son hated dressing out in Physical Education, but the P.E Coach spoke with him about importance of being physically fit and not my child wrestles. Every school has it good and bad parts, it is up to parents to stay active and involved. Close Quote

Open Quote We have lived in numerous parts of the Atlanta metro area, from Smyrna, to Sandy Springs, to Buckhead. By far, this is absolutely the worst school my child has ever attended. There is no diversity, which was expected in this part of town, but I did not expect the level of ghetto mentality that's here. The students, and many of the teachers give in to many negative stereotypes, and it's very unfortunate. The stories my child comes home with daily describes the kids as hoodlums and fast little girls.... Keep in mind, they're 6th graders. The teachers are also very disorganized and just throw work at the students, move on to the next thing & then blame the students for not turning in work. When I went for a parent teacher conference, with several teachers at once, they all told me that it's the WHOLE 6th grade doing extremely poorly, with an exception of few. Although we just bought our home last year, I am considering selling & moving. This just isn't what I expected from a school that is supposedly held to high standards according to their motto. Don't send your kids here if you want them to learn anything. 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.
