This school is making a really bad 1st impression thus far. I really hope the teachers are better than all the registration staff and front office personnel. They have registration only 3 days a week and even if you make an appointment online, you may very well end up being SOL when you show up. They NEVER.. well, I can’t say never, because out of the 2 weeks I have been calling, leaving voicemails AND sending emails, I finally got through to someone yesterday. And even though they say Registrations are held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday… sometimes they just decide they won’t have anything on a random Thursday it seems. (Oh, and after next week, no appointments for three weeks…. So, in case you were thinking of having your child enrolled soon because you’re moving or have some other circumstance… you kid(s) is going to be on a 3 week vacation. (The first of those weeks, is fall break though, so only 2 weeks of school work missed that they will need to make up along with what they already will need to get caught up with.) To top it off…Solely based off a conversation I overheard in the registration room... (No Privacy).. the counselors don’t seem to be rooting for the children to stay in school and graduate either. I only wish we had the option...well, schedule to petition to be able to enroll outside of our district. If you can drive and pick your child up from school every day, this is what I suggest you do and NOT enroll them in this school. Again though, I hope I am wrong and we love it here eventually.
My experience at this school has been amazing. My mom never thought i would attend this school due to the bad rep people put out about it and now she loves it. Yes we fall short sometimes but what high school doesn't ? The environment is something you would want to be apart of... EAGLE NATION!!!
i would rate this school a good school because it has a lot of cute boys !!!!! JK!!!! no but for real they have gangs behind the back of the school hey should get that checked out
Overall, the kids at South Cobb are great. It's just the few bad ones that give the school a bad reputation. This school is judged by any and every problem that occurs, but never recognized for the many accomplishments by its students and dedicated principal. I am a senior in the Magnet program here and must say that I could never imagine being anywhere else. Out of the multiple schools I've been to, I can honestly say that I've encountered some of the hardest- working, determined students while at South Cobb. I am proud to be a part of this family because as our principal reminds us everyday, "We are NOT what people may say, WE are NOT what people may think, We ARE better than they ever could imagine. Just come on down to South Cobb and see what we're truly capable of.
