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.
