I could write a book about my feelings towards this school, but instead I will keep it short to a few bullets.-School funding isn't allocated universally and is instead cherry picked for certain programs/students administrations deems worthy-Favoritism plays a role in the way administration operates, so heavily so that often times students will have vastly different punishments for the same infractions simply because the administrations cares more for one than another.-If you fall behind or have any mental health issues the school simply doesn't care and makes no effort to care for their student body.- intolerance runs deep in the character of the school, this is exemplified in so many actions they have taken, from preventing a GSA, to continually standing behind their mascot and allowing rebel flags on campus and even on the letterman well into the 2000'
Teachers care about students and help in many different ways. They know when students are having bad days or trouble at home and they let them know they're there to help.
I am a retired teacher, now a newspaper editor. I cover Fannin County schools and am very impressed with the education level of teachers at all five schools. I am also impressed that Fannin County has a graduation rate of 91.3 percent, 10.5 percent higher than the state average. Consistently, students score better in advanced placement tests than other schools in Georgia. However, the most impressive thing about Fannin County schools is that teachers CARE about students. Every month when I attend Board of Education meetings, I hear about teachers going beyond classroom teaching to help students.
I'm not sure if the poster that had written that their child did not learn WWII or anything like that and just learned about the Bible is an upset student or what but I can tell everyone on here that the post is not true. FCHS does offer a Bible class (don't know exactly what it is called) but of course it's by choice only and it's not even taught on school property (the building is not on school property). Which I think is sad but that's a different post. My child did however learn about evolution in his biology class. And as far as WWII and Pearl Harbor, they are most definitely taught and anything in between. I was very very happy with this school. My child was too he said. He loved all of his teachers so much and was well prepared for college. I love FCHS and my two daughters will also be attending in just a few years and I'm very comfortable about it. GO REBELS!!
