This year we got a lot of new students because one of the other middle schools shut down. Because of all the new students we don't have enough text books for everyone, the hallways are a nightmare (I have bruises to prove it), and over all it's hard to learn when you're shoved in a small room with 32 other kids!!! Oh and dance is NOT an extracurricular activities . I think the school has taken a turn for the worse. It was a great school, but now it's something out of my worse nightmares.

I agree with the poster that stated transferred students are treated poorly and not allowed to be in advanced classes. For all the hoopla about Peachtree City schools, this has been the worst let down. The administration could not care less about transferred children. I send some teachers emails and don't receive replies. I am extremely disappointed in this school.

Don't expect to be treated equally if you transfer into this school. Transfer students are placed at the end of every list. Deceptions, blocks, misdirection, untruths--all of these behaviors will keep you from being able to have your child placed in advanced classes. We had heard about the "Booth" attitude--Southern elitist. Sadly, the gossip was true.

The leadership of the school is outstanding, and so are the teachers. The school applies the latest philosophies in training and instruction.

Booth is a highly rated school in Fayette County, GA. The school is well organized and feels much smaller than it is.

This school is amazing! The teachers go above and beyond for the students. Academics are incredible, and students are pushed to be the best they can be. Three of my children have gone there and i have one there now!

My daughter started 6th grade at Booth this year and the teachers, staff and the principal have all been outstanding in helping all of the kids transition from elementary into middle school! I have seen the teachers provide so much positive reinforcement to the kids, a nice change from the constant negativity I saw in so many teachers at her elementary school!

My son spent 3 years at Booth. I was very satisfied with the quality of teachers. I did have some concerns with the way administration handled the bullying my child encountered.

Posted February 28, 2006

This school and its administration are an embarasment to Fayette County. We had an 8th grader last year and a 6th grader this year- we won't have a student there next year! The principal does not have the skills needed to deal with students or parents in a professional manner. There are some very wonderful teachers who are being overshadowed by an administration that lacks control and direction.
