This school is exactly what you would think it would be....full of fake people. I was surprised at how little the parents cared about their child's education. The parents are more concerned with appearance and what car they drive. Some of the kids are very snotty and rude to others. Bullying is a major issue here both in school and among the football players. I pulled my child pretty quickly as I was not impressed. Don't be fooled, there are drugs at this school and it is due to parents more worried about traveling than taking care of their kids. Avoid this place.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

They really care and are very involved with the students both in class and after school.

I wish every child could experience the level of encouragement and support the children at Wesleyan receive. It is truly a learning environment that encourages young students. It can seem intimidating at first but you will find the people (parents, faculty, administration) there are the nicest, most straight forward folks you will meet.

This school is all about appearance. There are great families and some great kids at this school, but faculty is hit or miss, and faculty kids get obvious and nonrefutable preferential treatment, as the people making decisions are their parents' friends. They also hire a lot of kids right out of college, and no one paying this kind of money wants a brand new teacher faking their way through their first few years. The headmaster is so removed. The wonderful retired headmaster knew every child. Really! The new one knows the kids who matter. And he makes decisions without feeling the need to explain to the customer, i.e. tha parents and families, why the decision was made. This school has been a mistake for our family, and most graduations families are not happy they stayed.

I attended Wesleyan from 6th to 12th grade and wish I had taken up my parents' offering to transfer schools. While I received a good education, the school plays "favorites" and turns a blind eye to bullying and other social issues. It's a homogeneous school with little effort placed on challenging students' worldviews or even exposing them to different cultures. Bible courses are strict and rigorous and teach flat and misguided theology. Some bible teachers, while steadfast in their views, will encourage discussion and debate, but most shut down opposing views immediately. I was recklessly teased because my Christian values weren't "good enough." As one other reviewer noted, most students aspire to attend UGA or other SEC schools. Little emphasis is placed on trying to get students to broaden their college options beyond the southeast. Wesleyan falls extremely short when compared to other Atlanta and metro-Atlanta schools.

Lots of entrenched faculty and staff members at the school. Who can blame them when they receive great benefits and free tuition for their children?

Amount of homework: Disagree

The headmaster has made it part of the school's branding to oppose homework. Students at Marist, St. Pius, and Lovett instead engage is a rigorous course of study that will propel them to post-secondary study at some of the leading institutions in the country.

How can you learn to work with those who are culturally different and have a different faith when all the faces on campus look like you (white)?

I know parents often have to make school decisions based upon geography and private school decisions depending upon the local school system. However, Weselyan is not worth the investment on a number of levels. The lower school enrollment has been in decline for sometime as parents opt for a good public school system in the area, and quite frankly opt-out of a education that will provide your children with a limited world view. Students may be drug tested and faculty and staff must sign a statement of faith to be employed by the school. If your are of Jewish, you need not apply. And while other Atlanta public schools send their graduates to colleges around the country, most Weselyan students aspire to the University of Georgia, a good school but academically no UVA or Duke.

Amount of homework: Agree

There are times when there is a lot of homework, but usually there's just enough for me to adequately learn the material
