The principal has been very friendly and welcoming every time I have visited the school.
This school has improved by leaps and bounds over the last 4 years, and I am thrilled with the hard work that Principal Johnson has put in. I am also grateful for all of the parents that have worked so hard to make these things happen. I have not contributed as I would like to, but many parents have. I have a Class of 2016 senior and a Class of 2020 rising freshman for the 2016-2017 school year. I just attended a meeting for the rising freshman and can only say "what a difference! " So much more organized and positive. While I can't say every thing is exactly perfect, I don't think I will find a school where it is. However, my child has taken rigorous classes, participated in a fabulous dance program, and been a member of the academic decathlon team in it's first 2 years in existence. I am proud to say that team beat Grady and North Atlanta high schools this year and went to state. At state, they came in 8th out of 22. Last year they came in 16th out of about 24. This is excellent considering the other schools have had AD teams for years and knew what to expect. The school now has 26 boys and girls sports and over 40 clubs. If a student is interested in starting a club, the school supports it. There is also a garden at the school and the kids are working hard to get certified to use the food in the school cafeteria and provide it to the community. They have learned so much in this process, about food, nutrition, gardening, and how to work the bureaucracy to make things happen!
The renovations are great and they are on the rise. I wasn't expecting such courtesy and professionalism but I was honestly blown away. I'm hoping this going to be a great school year!
This school is horrible they do not respect parents what so ever DO NOT listen to these other reviews because they are all lies that are written by the principal.
