I strongly agree with this previous post: "Many of the teachers may not be certified by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission and could not work in a "regular" public high school anyway. Some of the teachers may be difficult to understand since English may not be their native language. Expect a plethora of typos in communiques from the principal as well. " How can we expect our students to learn if the teachers are "difficult to understand since English may not be their native language"? As for the typos and grammatical errors, what message does this send to students? If the teachers and administrators can't write or proofread well, why don't they click on the spell check key before they finalize a document? While I can understand foreigners not being proficient in English, I cannot understand why professionals would not use the tools available to them to improve communications. Please, use spell check or hire a proofreader. If you can't figure out how to use technology to do your job better, how are you going to teach that message to your students?
This school has been truly great for my daughter, she absolutely loved this school and hates the fact she has to change. We are hoping that by some miracle that this school will open it's doors again. The teaches are very helpful and has the students best interest at heart. Praying for the state charter!!
The teachers are not qualified to teach. I would not recommend this school. to any other family.
This is an amazing school and I am so glad that it exists. There are people from every religion and race here so no one ever feels uncomfortable. It is so nice to know every single person in the school. The teachers feel like second parents by the time you graduate. FSAHS is every parent's dream and every student's heaven.

The school is alright but as many have already stated, it barely has any satisfactory clubs. It barely HAS any clubs to begin with. What's worse is that there's rarely time for clubs because all the classes in honors -and perhaps even normal ones- push a student so hard. There has not been a single week of school here (since i've started!) where there has not been a test, quiz, or project demanded from at least one class if not the usual 2 or 3. And while I'm ok with being challenged like this, it's annoying how the teachers urge us to join after school clubs when they're the ones that give us a buncha hw in the first place. and the small classes thing? yea that's bogus. there are no small classes anymore since it's really ur average high school but people there are really really nice. i mean you could walk in the halls and if u get a little bump u'll hear a million sorry's and people picking up ur stuff...lol but other than that it could really use improvement and a lot more student bonding even though everyone is nice and sweet and most classes are fun.
before i came to this school i always said i wanted to this and that in high school as curricular activities, and when i came here i found out that i could do nothing that i wanted to do except tech-fair (which this school excels at). that was a really big difference for me but i realized i won't have anytime for those extracurricular activities since the AP and Honors classes push the students to the limit. great school to just keep your focus in core lessons, but not so good if you want to chill with the extracurricular activities.
is a great racial, cultural, and political diversity among the students and teachers who truly care about their students. For students who want to do well and work hard. TEACH Charter High School was renamed as Fulton Science Academy High School starting on August 2010)
My son is in his 1st year here, and so far we are very pleased with the attitudes of teachers, who really have a genuine caring desire to have a child succeed and really seem to understand the needs of each child as an individual. The classes are challenging but small.
We are very pleased after our first year (9th grade) at TEACH. The teachers are very dedicated and willing to go the extra mile for motivated students with special interests. The honor courses challenge the students and we are looking forward to the AP courses offered next year. There is an excellent mix of students. Many intelligent young minds that help push creative thinking. Many after school academic contests where TEACH has done very well. The name of the high school is changing to Fulton Science Academy High School starting Aug 1, 2010 so I hope the good name of TEACH won't get lost in the transition. The school is still growing but we see a very positive future for our child's high school career. Our son loves (really loves) going to school here.
Great School!! Staff committed to academic excellence as evidenced by availability of tutoring every day throughout day and after school, college prep emphasis, individualized student planning, SAT classes, and weekly SAT exams to name a few. No distractions. The board, principal & leadership support the process.
This is a decent school that do not get enough recognition for the education that they are providing. The alternative, which is public high school is over crowded and lower grades.
I disagree with the below statement! My son excells at TEACH- the public schools are over crowded and will get worse! TEACH is like a private school. The SAT's were not realistic-only 10 students took the SAT and a few were EOSL. They even have a SAT class in 11th grade and all the teachers tutor throughout the day. Our EOCT's are superior!!
The quality of education is very poor. The majority of the admin. staff is not equipped to handle special circumstances. The SAT scores are the lowest in N.Fulton County and one of the lowest in Fulton County, even less than the State Average.
Excellent school! The teachers and staff do everything possible to help a child succeed. Fulton County never identified my child as an 'honor student' and he was kept in 'on level' classes. He seemed to be overlooked and was becoming quite bored with school. With the smaller classes, my child participated more in class and his teachers recognized he was ready for more advanced classes and they moved him into these classes. He is happier, more involved in school and challenged. His confidence has risen and I am sure that he is ready for college.
My son has been in this school for 2 years. The teacher ratios are excellent. Teachers meet with students in their home when extra help is needed. Extra tutoring is available daily and students even help students. All are friendly. The turkish teachers are quite nice, approachable and bend over backwards to help your child succeed.
The school is excellent. There is no question that the leadership is committed to the students and education. The school encourages parental involvement and provides the students with the tools to be successful. Love the focus on college prep from day one.
The private school attention without the pricetag! My daughter has really blossomed at TEACH. She has made many friends and come out of her shell. The teachers care more about the students and their grades then I've experienced at other schools. She is on the Robotics team at it is inspiring to be an engineer. All her teachers are accessible plus most have advanced degrees and have held jobs in the 'real world'. It is also very ethically diverse which I find crucial to a good education. All the advanced technology used is the icing on the cake. If you daughter wants to be a cheerleader, or your son a varsity letter jock, this isn't the school for you. If they want a chance to challenge themselves and enrich themselves and be encouraged to succeed even in honors classes and in life it is.
What a find! Although we were in a good high school district, we were worried about the size of the school and the individual attention our son would get so we decided to try TEACH. We also decided to try the school because technology it had seemed to be used to help make learning more efficient and interesting. Our son no longer has lost assignments because most of his work is submitted on-line. The school keeps its assignments updated and online so the parents can easily check what is happening. I have had helpful and efficient feedback from his teachers who really seem to care. They have had several fun activities including a school lock-in night. Another example is his political science teacher took students to listen to and meet the lieutenant governor. The work has been challenging and stimulating. We are so glad we decided to try TEACH, Erika
It is a great school with a unique technology oriented program. I strongly recommend every parent to send their children to this school.
