I am currently a sophmore at South Cobb high school and have to sadly say that I am dissapointed. 'Teachers' do not 'teach.' Yes, this sounds very spurious, but is unfortunately true. All I did in my French class is view Disney movies in ENGLISH! No subtitles in French or anything either! In my English class I have never been asked to write anything longer than half a page. The last time I checked, teachers were supposed to encourage you. The administration is nonexistent. I blame these problems on the 'principal.' I know not what she does with her time, but what I do know is that she doesnt try and neither do the majority of teachers.
I am a senior at South Cobb. I am continually let down by the school's low academic performance and nonexistent extra curricular activities. I have been a student at SC for four years and I feel that I have not learned enough to be successful in college. I have taken the toughest courses at SC, but many of these courses do not allow the student to gain deep insight into the curriculum. I have also had a lot of trouble with some of the teachers, because some fail to realize the need to instill a proper education in their students and instead continue to review the same material that most students learn in middle school. I hope that SC will someday be able to excel, but it does not seem likely due to the lack of extracurricular activities, the inept teachers, and the limited course selection.
My child has enjoyed attendint this school. She is a junior this year. I am impressed with the eargerness of the teachers to communicate with me about my child's progress. I have never had a problem with communicating with my child's teacher. The administration was excellent in handling a concern I had with one teacher, who is no longer at the school. The cooperation of the staff and administrators at this school regarding academic or teacher concern is excellent! I'm looking forward to my so attending this school next year.
i am a not a parent but a frshmen and the problem that i see is that the school is way too crowd and everything else is cool, communication between parent and teacher is good however most of the time teachers read their emails more than they do their answering messenges. the teacher are great.
I was a student at South Cobb High recently. I enjoyed all my classes and teachers. This school is a good school. Some kids take advantage of that.
I'm not a parent of a child at South Cobb, I'm actually a student and South Cobb is a good school for children who are trying to receive the upmost, top education. The administrators are great also in trying to make South Cobb a better place to learn. This school, is very good if you're into receiving an education with the upmost high respect.
My 16 year old nephew that I am raising has been attending South Cobb for the past three years, here is what I have noticed: 1. Poor communication between the teacher and parents, they send communication through the students - they expect the teenagers to tell you what is going on by way of handouts or verbal, most of which are lost or forgotten. 2. The teachers wait until it is too late to notify you that your childs grades are suffering-this problem I am sure is linked to the above issue. 3. When notified of my nephews failing grades, I tried to contact the teacher to see if there was a way that we could work to improve them. My calls were never returned.
What the previous parent didn't tell you is that drugs and booze are rampant in the school and the administration seems to be almost totally unaware. They are more concerned with a kid (not mine by another parent's child) arriving 4 minutes late than the fights in the hall ways. The physical plant is old and run down, the halls dreary and classes are sometimes spread so far apart is it almost impossible for a kid to get from one class to another without being late.
South Cobb is a good school. It's principle is great and most of the teachers are very helpful.
