Posted June 19, 2014

This school was one of the greatest high schools in Georgia. Great staff, many great student organizations, and a great atmosphere. Now, It is truly on a slippery slope. An out of touch board of education, coupled with a scheming dictator for a principal, has degraded all that used to make this school great. Roughly 3/4 of the teachers, many that were excellent, have left. Something needs to be done, this house of cards will not stand forever. I just hope that the community sees through the fa ade before its too late.

Although academics is somewhat par at best the administrative staff mainly principal are out of contrrol. Mr. Lollis has taken on the role of a dictator. He came from one of the best school systems in GA where he nearly single handedly destroyed it and now he is well on his way here. He must go ASAP!
