As most people in the community know, the education isn't the best, but it is a lot better than the surrounding schools *cough* *cough* Southland Academy. As long as your child is in the honors program and you have taken the time to instill the morals all children need, he/she will do fine. It offers many more options of success ( A.P. classes, sports, clubs) compared to surrounding schools. It's only real competition within 20 miles is Schley County. Schley County has a great basic class schedule (Chemistry, English I, II, III, Math I, II, III, etc), but they lack in the supposed honors/A.P. classes. As a student from these two schools I am impartial to Sumter and Schley because they both have their positives and negatives. Sumter overall has an OK basic curriculum while, in my opinion, the honors/A.P. classes are outstanding. The drug problems aren't that big, it is like every schools. If you kid doesn't do bad things before moving to this school, he will continue to be a good kid. I remember when I transferred from Schley to Sumter and heard all of the hype of how bad it was, but, in reality, it is not bad whatsoever. It all depends on the morals and ideals of your child.

I went to this school from 04-08. Football is NOT the most important thing. This school spends more money on football equipment than it does trying to get a computer in the class room for every student. Their books are outdated and they went through 3 different principals while I was going there. A lot of the students care just don't care. Even though the school has the right to drug test students on the football team they don't because they know they would find drugs. There had been at least TWO drug dog searches while I was there.

The school is clean, and the children are nice. The students are intelligent. The football team is one of the greatest in the state of Georgia, and they offer great leadership programs, and extracurricular activities.
