This school is one of the oldest high schools in douglas county this school has no self control when it comes to dealing with students. They make the boys tuck in shirts supposely for security reasons there restrooms have no doors they are always smelling like cigarettes and other smokes. And not to mention there food service we are constantly being served the same food which is tasteless and disgusting but we eat it because we need something in our bodies in order to function trough the day .honestly if I could. I would leave but I can't

I am a student at lithia springs high school and sadly im going for the 1st month of my 10th grade year. I can honestly say this school is a school set up to make your children Fail. There isn't even any windows !. My psychiatrist said since i enrolled into this school I've fallen into depression. They make the good kids bad and the bad kids worst. They aim to mess up the students records with their crazy rules just because they can. They are set to have us fail. The academic teachers are poor and honestly the other non academic classes such as (home ec. The baby class, chorus etc.) Try harder in teaching us then our core classes. If you have another option then this school please choose that one because now my future needs alot of explanation to the college i always wanted to go to.

let me start out by saying this school is the worst school i have ever seen. it looks dirty ran down, old. i couldnt believe that they would actually have our children there to learn. georgia should be ashame of their self for even having a school that look like this. so many times i have wanted to call the news, health dept and everything else to get them to close down this school. im so ashamed to even have my children attend this school. i hate that i moved here!!! and to make it so bad i cant do anything about it because the school board said i would have to transport my kids on my own. im a single mother that have to be at work by 730 and i work about 45 min away cant transport them myself. the end result dont move to lithia springs and dont put your kids in their school system!!!

I too am ashamed to say that I attended this school..."comprehensive?" Puh-leeze! The only thing that is comprehensive about the school is the destruction of the facility by the students. Adding the name "comprehensive" does nothing but imply quality of education; it does not ensure it. This school was designed to fail from the get-go because of poor planning (e.g. no doors to the classrooms, only doorways). I substitute taught there while on extended holiday breaks at my college and was almost beaten up by an ignorant, underachieving student (and her minions) who probably grew up in a hostile home environment where her parents did not encourage or take any responsibility for their daughter's education. This may be located in the suburbs but urban teaching tactics is the only way to approach this school, that and hiring qualified teachers who are not afraid of pay-for-performance teacher pay in combination with a truly supportive Board of Education.

I am ashamed to say I attend this school. There is no discipline whatsoever. The students have taken over the school, so much to where it seems the teachers have given up. At the beginning of the school year so many new rules were laid out, & enforced. After about a month of school, they were no longer enforced. Kids still walk around with their mp3 players in, texting in class, wearing their pants down to their knees, showing off their cleavage. I am almost fearful of the school because of the fights and crazyness. In my first day of class of spring semester, a teacher asked how many kids wanted to go to college; 5 people out of 26 raised their hand. I feel like the school needs to try harder, much harder. I am trying my hardest to go to a school out of county for my senior year.

Parents often wish to blame the faculty for being lazy when there are so many teachers who bust their rears, stay after, take work home, go through extra conferencing with individual students about problems with their grades, and spend hours on lesson plans. I have noticed a significant absense on the part of parents when there are open houses at Lithia, especially in the higher grades.

I will give the school a high rating for effort and the office staff. But however, concerning my student's learning ability could be greater and more structured. The laziness has to end on both the teachers and students. Support our youth, even if you do not have any kids to raise, every kid that attends Lithia High School is your kid too. Think of that way, and act like you care! Thank You for all your support and love for those who really care about your jobs, the kids and the kids future! Thank You Again it means alot.

My school is o.k. However i feel that the teachers are more focused on the children in the classroom that are being lewd and disobedient rather than the students who are actually trying to learn. I also feel as if I am missing out on a quality education. The faculty seems to be more focused on petty rules than actual learning. A Freshman

The test scores and graduation rate is poor at this school, I am not sure it is all the schools fault. I feel parents should be more involved in their childs education. My son is an A-B student and has no problem with eoct and other testing. Warning! watch your child's scheduling closely if you intend for them to attend college, scheduling proper courses has been the biggest challenge at this school.

I am very disappointed in the appearance of this school. It is just plain unacceptable. The school needs a complete overhaul and updated look. The bathrooms are ridiculous and no one seems to be doing anything about it. Administration is very disorganized as evidenced by the way there programs are run. Since enrolling my child there, I have since to hear anything about a PTA (Does it even exist at this school?) The athletic department is one big joke. My child is an excellent student therefore, she will do fine in what ever school she attends. It is just embarrassing to even tell people what school she goes to because of the condition. It has been rumored that Douglas County is supposed to have one of the better school districts, so far I have not been convinced. My plans are for my child not to go there next year.

I think that this school could use a lot of updating. The teaches do not respond to your e-mails that you send on the schhol web-site. They don't even follow up when ask them to call or e-mail about your childs progress. I think that the communication among parents and teaches should be better. They don't have PTA meetings to let you know what's going on at the school or with your child. I think more participation with the staff and the community is a vital point. I think that's why the school have problems with funding the students trips and transporation to certain events. I think we really need to look at this.

This school is very good in its academic programs and they have excellent teachers who will help the students. I am very involved in the school activities. The extracurricular activities are very excellent and they should keep up the good work.

I think there should be more structured homework in high school. My son had more homework in elementary and middle school than he has been given in high school. There should be more reading with questions to answer at the end of the assignments. Instead the classes are 90 minutes long which is too long to expect a child to stay focused. And math and english should be all year long not just half. By the time math is taken again they have forgotten all that they have learned before. My son struggles but there is nothing I can do to help because he says that they do the homework in class. So I never see what it is he is working on or what the problem is. And then the progress report comes and says he is failing. A bigger homework load will not hurt, only help.

I graduated in 2005. I have to admit the adminstration was horrible. But the teachers, well many of the teachers are passionate about their job, and really took an interest into the lives of their students. It does need discipline, a lot of it, especially with the growing population in the area, a little updating and some pest control. But i have good memories. Its an okay school.

My daughter is a junior and I do not think the curriculum is broad enough to accommodate all the students. There are limitations to their extracurricular activities. And my opinion of the staff is that they do not care and let me say it is not all of them. The principal and his asst need to be retrained on their responsibilities as the leaders of the school.

I was a class of 04 student at LSHS and hated every minute of it. It was, by far, the worst school I've ever attended. There is a major discipline problem. The administrators do not know how to handle unruly students. There weren't nearly enough clubs or after school programs. Most of the teachers didn't care about the students' education. The school hasn't been renovated one bit since it was built in the early 70s. My advice, don't put your child through it. Choose another school.

I graduated in 2005. Lithia Springs is in all respects a good school, taking into account the growing population size and the lag in BOE response/help. The teachers do as best they can with so many state and federal tests to prepare their students for.

This school does not have any structure. The principal and assistant principal have zero leadership skills and do not know how to speak to people in a respectful helpful way. Also, the counselors do not call you back in a timely manner and the administrative department does not send home notifications on upcoming events or changes. My advice to anyone who is moving into the Douglas County area look at the other 3 schools before having a child endure these situations.

As a parent, I am pleased with my son's first year at LSHS. However, I think there may be too much idle time spent in the classroom. I know that kids learn at different levels and paces, but give the 'quick learners' some extra worksheets or something to keep them busy and keep them learning! The band program is fantastic and the parent involvement within that area is good. I do wish they had more activities to get others active and involved to stay out of trouble. Something possibly to help the community and the school at the same time.

I am a student at Lithia and I hate it there. Let me say now that there is not extraccuricular activities for every personality, otherwise I would be there after school. Another thing is the teachers don't seem to care. A lot of them don't teach half of what they should. The staff doesn't care and if I could give the school a zero star I would, but I can't.

Thank God I no longer have a child at LSHS. Be very selective if you're considering this school or moving into the Lithia Springs Area. There are several wonderful Administrators and LSHS; but the Deeds of the Good are tarnished by the selfishness of others. Sports - Cheerleading 'Waller' highly recommended.

My son has been attending Lithia Springs for 3 years now. The counselors are great, they have assisted me with his academics and the athletic dept. is the fairest of other schools in the county. I must say, it is boring, the students are getting restless and wanting more student related programs.

I think LSHS is a great school my daughter has attended there 3 years. I really love the clubs and athletic departments. Dr. Waller is an outstanding cheerleading coach. She want the girls to achieve more in academics than cheerleading this is a rare teacher whom some of the children look at as thier mother. With all schools there are some problems but i believe god has special people teaching there for our children.

As a teacher at Lithia for 4 years now, I can tell you, Lithia gets better every year I am here. When I first started, we had quite a few discipline problems but that has decreased greatly over the years, due to a massive overhaul in the administrative team. Academics are improving, the student body is more respectful than ever, and the sports teams are even doing better! If I had the choice of transfering anywhere else in the county (or even the Atlana area) I wouldn't. Go Lions!

As a graduate of this school I can tell you first hand...The staff is wonderful, everyone of the staff members get to know the students and they understand the situations they are in! Something very intresting about Lithia is that is a one big family, I have never seen people get a long as well as the faculty and students do there! The academics are great and the sports are improving! Lithia's staff is very involves in their athletes and the DO NOT tolerate bad behavior or slacking in grades...I believe this is a very important factor to keep the students out of trouble and keep their heads in the classroom!! I would recommend this school....it is a great experience! From someone who really knows!

Lithia Springs is a great school! I transferred my child from another high school in Cobb County; I thought the move would be difficult for her, but it was actually easy. She enjoys her new friends and her new classes. Also, thanks to Mrs. Strydom for leading her in the right direction and preparing her for the future. To others, it might seem like Mrs. Strydom is ruining their lives, but soon they will know that it pays off in the long run. Again, thank you sooo much!

I think that Lithia Springs High School provides a very diverse and friendly atmosphere overall. It is a wonderful school to learn and grow as an individual person. The many sports that are available are wonderful, and the many clubs, groups and organizations are sensational as well. It is really one of the best schools in Georgia!

I loved my years at Lithia Springs. I went all four years and really enjoyed the experience. Not only did Lithia have many fine clubs to boast on, but the marching band was the best in the county out of the four high schools, bringing home several first place trophies. I think that Lithia Springs is a great school.

This school is a wonderful school. It may not be as beautiful as some of the other schools but the quality of the staff is wonderful. There are many extracurrucular activities. There is one for every personality. You will not be making a bad choice going with this school. Being a student there is so much fun. There are all kinds of school activities that happen on special weeks that your kids can get involved in.

I am not a parent but a former student of Lithia. This school is not perfect, but find one that is!! Lithia has a great wrestling team, football team just to mention a few. They also have clubs and a newspaper. The teachers are nice and although the classes are rather large they try to make time for individual help. My favorite thing at Lithia High was a meeting on Friday mornings called First Priority. This meeting was and is still held before school and is for Christian students who want to worship before school. I think it was an awesome opportunity. The attendence (which is optional) is still at about 140 students on a good day 60 on a bad one. Overall this school is good, friendly, and very diverse.
