Grovetown High School1

We are a military family stationed at Fort. Gordon and were told to stay in Colombia County. This is a close knit community, a previous review stated if you are attached to one bad apple that your child is branded as a bad apple as well. That review was absolutely correct. My child has been bullied by a group of kid's from the ending of last year to currently now. Talking to the staff is pointless. We all know going into the office and pulling other children in makes it worse. For the mental health of your child, I'd choose another licstion.
Our children recently started attending Grovetown High. I have to say, the JROTC program is above any other. The Staff is very professional... you can see they love working and teaching respect to our children. I would like to see an improvement in their meal selection, my kids maybe have lunch once every two weeks since there are no options other than a main dish. Pizza gets categorized as a fruit! Sorry, but lunch menus need a lot of improvement. The building itself is well kept, and the community seems to be growing fast. I would also reccomend that the library gets a revised schedule allowing our children more than 15 minutes to complete any homework after school. We are a military family and move constantly so we had experiences with many High Schools and I am glad we found a good school for our children.
We're a military family, and when we moved here we had a few problems transferring some home school credits. Mostly, it was miscommunication with the counselor. Other than that slight hiccup, my teenager loves this school and the teachers.
this school does not meet proper expectations of parents nor students, where staff focuses on petty matters such as minor conduct issues and not educational issues such as teachers teaching abilities, class atmosphere and the concern of the students
If your child is associated with one bad apple, they will be branded as one also. They will judge your child and make it difficult for them to succeed. 90% of the teachers are there for a paycheck, and the school board does not care either. "Every student, every day" is total BS.
Grovetown High School is only 4 years old. It has amazing faculty in the front office and 916 ,where students can go to visit the principal(Ms. Penny Jackson, their guidance counselor and the assistant principals( Mr. Craig Baker, Mr. Sean Petro, and Dr. Susy Roper). Grovetown has a 30-minute period that we call Pride Period in which the students pick a club to go to for the semester. We also have JROTC, in seeing all of the people in their uniforms every Tuesday I would say almost half of the school is in JROTC. Culinary Arts is also provided. In that class you learn how to cook, teamwork, etc. I took this class and it was very enjoyable! The teachers at Grovetown are awesome with what they do. They make us want to come to class by not making the lessons terribly boring and they know their students.
my school is horrible. the administration can not help the students the way they should. whenever there is a student in danger they overlook the situation leaving the student in danger. bullying is absurd in this school.
