AWESOME!! My family moved to Sprayberry dist from Walton dist and I must say it was the best move I could have made. More diversity, great teachers, just the right size to stand out in and all in all made me feel more comfortable than the larger school Walton and my grades dramatically improved because of this. I loved it!!
The worst of the East Cobb schools. So when researching the schools and you're directed to East Cobb, just act like you don't see Sprayberry. If you are accustomed to professional, efficiency and overall positive experiences, you will be greatly disappointed. However, if you want to have fun, and only care about sports, then Sprayberry is your school.
Great school. Great diversity. Good sports program. Kids love it! Best in Cobb County GA
I am a senior at SHS who will be graduating this Friday, May 27th, 2011. I moved from NY and thought it would be hard to adjust to a new school, state, and friends. However, SHS made everything so easy. The teachers were all so friendly and helpful. They were there whatever I needed weather it be school related or not. I am the first in my family to actually graduate so this is a big deal and I have SHS to thank for that.
Sprayberry is a prejudice school. The teachers at sprayberry would tell the kids they need to go back where they came. I hope after speaking with the school board, I hope they will not let Sprayberry be involved in the no child left behind. I don't hear nasty comments from students at other schools. My step son went to Hillgrove and he never had problems with the teachers saying nasty comments to students.
great sports teams and a great principle this is a greayt place to go to high-school
I love Sprayberry. I went there and now my daughter is in the 9th grade there. The school really makes it hard to fail. There are so many ways free of charge to get extra help if students need it. I have been extremely impressed with the teachers and staff at Sprayberry. They encourage parents to get informed and involved with the students education. It almost seems like we parents can get so lost especially now in high school. The staff guides the parents and gives them a super support system. I feel so comforted by my daughter being at Sprayberry. I honestly would not send her anywhere else.
Sprayberry is pretty ok the AP and Honors classes are really good and challenging. But there IS a sort of devision at the school that I've noticed. It's between students who take AP/Honors classes and students who take regular (or 'on-level') classes. I've noticed that there are many (of course not all) people in AP/Honors classes that look down on people in the regular classes. I'm not one for cliques and devisions so of course this really stood out to me and pissed me off (if you excuse my language). Overall it's a pretty good school, better than my last anyway. I'd rate it as just a normal school though, nothing really spectacular that changed my life forever lol.
Sprayberry is an EXCELLENT school. It may not be the newest school in the area and partly because it is landlocked, but I am from up North and used to older buildings. My children are performing beautifully there and the band and football teams are to die for. Parental involvement is key and there is an abundance of parental faces always present at the school. Now, I did email the principal once and she never responded but I am going to be positive and attribute that to her being busy with supporting her students and all of their many activities. Overall, I like this school over some of the other schools I've come in contact with in Cobb County. Get involved and watch your childs experience here enhance!
Sprayberry is a fantastic school. The teachers are outstanding and keep parents up to date and involved with their child's progress at the school. Academics, Fine Arts and Sports programs are all above average.
Sprayberry a really great school. As a graduated student, I'm addressing posts below. Many are accurate, but some appear to be a result of a parent getting mad and flaming about a certain dept. What many people don't understand is that the guidance (counselors) have one of the hardest jobs in the school because it is their job to not only help those who need actual counseling, but to arrange thousands of schedules and help each and every student get what they need to stay on track. It is sheer arrogance to say that they are at all lacking based on one bad experience because each and every counselor does their job to the fullest, so just because you may not get everything you want, it doesn't mean the guidance dept. is 'lacking.' The guidance dept. does an excellent job, and deserves proper representation!
We moved to Georgia in October mainly because of Georgias schools, my daughter spent her first years in Catholic Schools in New York and I was scared to try a public school, but let me tell you, Sprayberry is an outstanding school, I can talk to the teachers during the school day if needed, when they have a free class if I have have to leave a message they get right back to me at there next free minute. The office personnel are great, even with well over 1000 students they still know my daughter.My daughter and I love the i-parent she constantly checks it to watch her grades and work on areas that need help. She is constantly encouraged to reach higher standards.I love the computer generaed calls giving us important information and notifying us if our child is absent from a class.This school is definetly ready for the future.
School has gotten better and better each year as new houses have gone up around it.
My son has been attending Sprayberry since 2005. I had nightmares about this school mainly due to the bad publicity and reviews that it has gotten in the past. Much to my surprise, it has turned out to be an excellent school. My son has had excellent teachers, except for 2 or 3. His guidance counselor, Mrs. Robinson is excellent. The rest of the guidance department is lacking and could do a better job. The focus in on academics NOT athletics which is where it should be. I love the diversity of the kids. It is an old school, but looks can be deceiving. It is a great school!
Sprayberry is an alright school. It has it's goods and it's bads. All in all, I like it, I think it is run pretty well, I feel pretty safe, I like a majority of my teachers. The school food is not great. Bullying is another issue, but it isn't as frequent or severe as it used to be in other schools. I guess no school is perfect.
Steer clear of this school! Though a few good teachers, the administration and new principle are worthless! Emloyee turn over is huge. Already had one child graduate from there.
I am a recent graduate of Sprayberry. i have been to other schools in different school systems and in Cobb County. I can say only say extremely bad things about guidance staff and couselors, but Sprayberry has by far been my best experience. of coarse, i only had 1 year there, i have to say that it was a really good place and i wish that i had more time there. Academically rounded, great teacher quality, not a sports person, but it was great! It was extremely cool to see parents, teachers, and administrators (the good ones!), on the same team! i felt safe at all times and i didn't mind being there...so what it was school and I had senioritis! Thanks Sprayberry!
Sprayberry was the worst school I have ever been too. The school is obsessed with sports, instead of focusing on Academics, like it should be. The staff members seem to hate the school as well, since most of them are unpleasant to deal with. If your a parent and you are thinking about moving to North Georgia, try to avoid the Sprayberry district as much as possible.
On his first day of high school this year, my son came home and said 'mom, at Sprayberry everybody is different, so nobody gets picked on.' This is the beauty of attending an ethnically, racially and socio-economically diverse school. So far, his teachers have been excellent. His Spanish teacher last semester was awesome and his algebra and geography teachers were very dedicated and willing to go the extra mile. My son made it on to the j.v. soccer team. They may not be the best soccer team in Cobb County but they accepted just about everybody who tried out. This would never occur at the other East Cobb schools were winning is everything and players who are not shining stars do not make it on the team. The other thing that I like about this school is that the parents are 'down to earth' and the principle is approachable and caring.
The quality of the program varies greatly with the teacher. We have had some excellent teachers and some not so great. Sprayberry offes plenty of sports but facilities are limited. Thay have an excellent fine arts program. Parents seem to be very involved with most extracurricular programs.
