So my children have been attending this school for 3 years now, and I have to say, all in all, it is not the worst,MUCH better than Hinesville. I have had numerous issues with bullying, and in some instances it HAS NOT been handled appropriately in my opinion, despite my being an involved, good parent. The Curriculum is lacking ( all of GA) and my kids are not being challenged enough( I give them extra work to their dismay to compensate). Favoritism is thick among administration and certain students, same goes with most small towns. They have nonsense rules regarding water, and bathroom areas, yet do not uphold rules that matter such as checking ID's , or not allowing parents to walk onto campus, as happened with my son who was approached by a parent who went up to him and accused him of hitting his child ( he apologized because it was the wrong kid, if that matters!) who you know is alive and thriving at this school. Bus situation is appalling. There are too few bus drivers, so children are crammed in 3 or 4 to a seat on some routes, mixed k-12 graders! Better schools than hinesville for sure, but stay involved! It will be what you make of it, and you need to be an active parent.
