I am currently a student. The high school is academically unacceptable. Its all about the sports. The band program is wonderful and its a welcoming environment. The band placed 5th in the state. but everything else is centered around sports.

I am an alumnae of Atlanta High School and the main focus there is athletics. I was in band and was in the FFA there. The FFA program was a good program but the teachers did not teach you anything, it was just a come to class and do whatever you want to. The band was great too but the uniforms were very old. My years in high school was good and would have been better had the school not put so much into athletics.

Atlanta High School is a great place for students to attend. There is a wide variety of emphasis in athletics, academics, and band. Atlanta High School is an award-winning secondary education institution. If you want your kids to attend a school that is dedicated to their education, this is the place for them.

Well I am not a parent but I am a freshman. What I seen so far that it is mostly about football and sports. I think that, thats all thats going on right now is football. The band uniforms are sort of sorry though. We do have good teachers. Our teachers are smart and fun to be around. Ms. Kemp is a good teacher. She knows what she is doing everyday. Well over all I think this is a good school.

As a former student of Atlanta High School, I must agree that there was too much emphasis on athletics. The athletic department only reaches to a few dozen kids a year...what about the rest of us? There were never enough books for the AP classes for us to have one for ourselves- we shared. There were always enough basketballs, always the greenest grass, and fresh, crisp athletic uniforms- how old are the band uniforms? The predominate feeling in the classrooms were- the smart kids can get by without our help, focus on the jocks that can't read, or put our money into finding the kids who couldn't care enough to attend. What about us? Those lost in the windowless halls, showing up everyday hoping one day we'll be noticed for something?

I'm a student at Atlanta High and I must say that the school itself is not the most attractive. However in that school are teachers who truly care about their students. Take Mr. Doug Saffel for example, he loves to teach history. He is a young and intelligent person who wants to get the students involved in learning. Also, Ruth Trumble who is an excellent English teacher. Their main goal is to better the students to be the best that they can be.

My daughter attended Atlanta high school last year. It is a great school if your child is in football. Atlanta's primary focus is on athletics. They have a weak honors program and very little academic encouragement. Overall I found the educators unqualified to teach many of the core courses.
