This is an excellent school. It's not easy, but it produces literate students if your student is willing to work really hard. This is not the school of the easy A. It is the school of the blood and sweat A, but it's worth it.

Lithonia HS has come a long way, but like any organization that had an unfavorable reputation, it will take a long time, if at all, for that to be erased. It will be a long time before it is a school you can brag about your child going to, but that does not mean your child cannot receive a good education. I've had not problem because I stay active at the school, get to know my child's teachers and encourage them to get involved in the many clubs and programs the school has to offer. I've had three children attend LHS, two graduated, one attends GSU to become a physician's assistant, the other Georgia Southern in Int'l studies. Two are not exceptional students either, I just made sure they kept school a priority. Currently the school has a very good principle and teaching staff (give or take a few), as with all schools. I notice the biggest complainers of the school do the least. Due to location/proximity of this school, there will always be, for lack of a better word, a few bad applies spoiling the bin. It's up to YOU, how your child will succeed at LHS. Submitted by a parent

Lithonia High School is where my daughter (10th grade) will be attending. I need a parent (s) to advise me on this school (academics, professionalism, culture, sports, arts, etc...). I am seeking current information

This school is not a good school all the staff members care about is the money well money don't make the kids learn. The teacher and other staff members are rude and lazy. The teachers are lazy all they do is sit behind the computer. They never get up and make the class interesting. They need to shut down that school is disgusting. There are roaches and the roofs are in a mess. The staff members abuse they school powers and can care less about the kids

This is NOT a good school. It is falling apart and the dress code is VERY strict! Students cannot wear flip flops or leggings with dress (not "long" shirts). That is ridiculois. My child has a nickel allergy so the button on keans irritate and rash her skin. She should be able to wear leggings so long as the dress comes down to just above the knee! The school is falling apart with leaks in the ceiling of every hall; there are fights and food fights almost everyday. Students are treated like animals so they will act that way. They need to figure out and learn how to encourage them more instead of making threats. Also, this is the FIRST school I have enrolled my student in that asks for Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, AND Senior dues!! Why so many dues if the school is not being kept nice and sanitary?! There are roaches everywhere! Yuck! Moving to a new district ASAP! The counseling office ALWAYS makes me wait at LEAT 30 min before I am helped, and teachers are non-responsive to emails. I had to go to the principal several times. Several classes my student is taking have been "taken over" by substitute teachers that have no idea what they are doing or "teaching" & dont turn books in!

I recently graduated from LHS, and its not the shool. Its the drive that you have, and the reason why to you come to school in the first place. To learn. Worrying about the fights, and the lack of parental involvement is not the reason why LHS has the promblems that is has. It's b/c of the children. Parents complain about the violence and how the kids are disrespectful, but have you ever given the thought that maybe it was your child. Kids are so much different when they are home and when they are at school. I graduated with honors, and i was in the top 10% of my class. Its all about time management, and knowing what you have to do to succeed. I wouldnt have gone to another high school for any reason. This year Lithonia has made AYP. Every year the school makes more improvements.

Lithonia High have very good academic ciriculums. Two of my children have graduated from Lithonia High. They both are attending college. My son is attending Southern Polytechnic University. He is studying to become an electrical engineer. My daughter is attending Valdosta State University. She is studying to become a sports physical therapist. You must get involved in your childs life in order to make a difference in the school that he or she is attending.

I have no problems with Lithonia High School - my children went to Lithonia. They never had discipline problems,we never had a problem with the curriculum, we worked with our children, provided them with additional learning materials and they graduate in the top 5% of their respective class.

I agree with that the school is not well organized. There is a lot of violence. It is in my district so I thought I did not have a choice on where to send my child. My daughter will be graduating in 2009 and she is doing very well there. Her grades are good and she has a good social life. I think it depends on the child as far as how successful their going to be at LHS.

This School is Bad! Don't send your child to this School if at all possible. They only have one police officer. The staff is understaffed! The School is over crowed. Teachers are leaving the school. This School doesn't receive any funding from the government due to the NCLB law. These kids are out of control! Few of the teachers care but most are just there to pay the bills.

There is no parent involvement, poor extracurricular activities and the teachers are fed up. The administration is inconsistent in their discipline, actually the students run the school. Teachers are not backed up by administration.

The worst school ever, my daughter went to this school for a year transferring from Boston. the curriculum was a joke and the teachers inept, the violence at the school was also a major factor in her leaving the school.

My son is now a senior at the school and although there is not alot of positive feedback about the school as a whole, one thing we've instilled in him is school is what you yourself as a young man make it! His grades are great and he has a chance to qualify for the Hope Scholarship. With constant parental involvement as well as consistent school support, our young men and young women can share a feeling of academic fulfillment.

From my understanding the school was only build for 1200 students and as of now 2006 their are 1874 enrolled in this school, if this is true what is the board of education and other people of government doing about this situation? I have now two kids to attend Lithonia one recently to graduate and if you have been up to the school and walked through the kids are so disrespectful and if taught with respect and some parental control and involvement maybe we wouldn't be pointing the finger at other people.The programs are there and the kids have knowledge of them but dont attend as well as extracurricular activities.Us as parents have to be welling to give a helping hand as well and being supportive of not only of our kids but as well as the teachers that also takes the time to teach our kids.

While Lithonia High has many highly qualified teachers, the administration is killing the school. Discipline is inconsistent and the principal impliments sporadic consistency in all areas. I am very glad that my child is no longer a student at this school. I am aware that many of the teachers no longer desire to instruct at this school and have requested transfers. Something has to change very quickly, if Lithonia is ever going to be a school that truly cares about educating students and helping to develop young men and women who desire to be contributing members of society.

I attend Lithonia High School and I am ready to leave it. i hate this school with a passion. The whole idea of discipline is absurb to the students who attend here. Fighting is all they know. The whole school is set up for failure. Its hard to enjoy your high school years at this school because it does not feel like a school.
