That is a great school just like every other school in richmond county so why punish every one when its the teachers that need to learn how to take control.
—Submitted by a student


Posted September 9, 2003

Teachers can't teach because they spend too much time trying to control their classrooms. The Administration does not support their teachers. The students are 2-3 grade levels behind where they should be. What discipline they have is ineffective. If you are thinking or working here or sending you child here, don't.

As a parent of a previously attended Richmond County student, and as a previous teacher in this school system, and in this particular school as well, I can tell you this school is one of the worst I have ever seen, in every respect, and the entire Richmond County School System is in great need of improvement, especially with regards to the administration!! Needless to say, I do not work there any longer.

I think that the children are not being challenged at all academically. They often have no home-work. No extracurricular activities for six graders. It's a real negative enviroment which is not condusive to learning.
