  • "Snobs Mill" indeed.

    Starr's Mill is wonderful for academics and sports. Their fine arts program however, is neglected. All the teachers and students who take part in the programs are wonderful teachers, or are very talented students.

    But the programs recieve little to no support from the rest of the school. Sports teams are allowed to conduct themselves as they wish (failing grades, wild parties, skipping class...) do not recieve proper punishment. As long as they make goals, they are honored.

    Starr's Mill also has no cultural influences. The "multi-cultural" meetings are a joke, as they either contain African Americans singing a song, (Being a regular African American is not "cultural. Such as one who's grandparents lived in England would not be expected to walk around with a British accent.) or consists of large men breaking things. (That sent out the message that in order to do well in life, you must do sports. Wonderful Starr's Mill. Just great.)

    Being a southern school, it is considered strange to not be a Christian, and too many Christian beliefs are being displayed. It should not be considered strange for a student to not know a Biblical figure in English class, if they are not a Christian.

    This school focuses mainly on sports.
    A large percent of the students are used to having stuff handed to them on a silver platter.
    The students all tend to be really talented and you can learn more from them that the teachers if you 'fit' in their group. Huge Cliques if this school was loctated in hollywood we would have our own T.V. Show.
    No Shop Class
    No auto class
    Fine Arts classes are getting cut ever year with a dwindling art program even though over 50% of students that take fine arts all 4 years tend to get into the high industry of art and design of some sort. A large percent of these students end up attending S.C.A.D.
    Small technology program.
    Has lots of Clubs for just about everything down to Hackysack Club.
    Students literally don't get a chance to get into any AP classes being very limited they are usually only open to the top 10% GPA earnign students of the upper classes.
    If you transfer to this school you will NOT get into ANY AP classes.
    The administrative staff is very nice. The Vice Principals are funny and know the students.
    Getting into the sports teams are hard if you transfer to the school. The coaches choose the teams before they even hold tryouts.
    Lack of students cultural diversity is a bit nerving sometimes. There are groups of students with high end artistic talent that don't fit in because they don't play sports or fit in with the rich kids.
    Th school has no shop or auto class but if the school wasn't designed like a spindle they would have enough room to put the classes in.
    Also if the school wasn't designed on a spindle shape they would have room to make the parkinglot larger for golfcarts (an alternate form of transportation that the students would use)
    The parking lot is poorly designed with only 2 exits and it takes a long time to get in and out when picking up or dropping off students for events.
    The school's schedule is 6 classes a day when they are aware block schedule would make much more sense especially during exam week.
    Durning exam week the really mess thing up. You show up to school for 2 to 4 hours a day (depending what classes you have to take exams on) then you have to find your own ride home. OR you can wait until the buses come for the middle school and sit in the cafeteria for 4 hours.
    A lot of people in peachtree city either don't work or work very seldom. Jobs like Delta Pilots tend to be the most common. So parents can pick up their kids ar any time because they aren't working. While everyone else is inconvienced.
    If you don't have to take the first exam they don't even want to see you on campus so you have to arange for a ride 2 hours later than your usual morning pick up.

    As I have mentined above transfer students don't really get anything out of this deal. I transfered to Starr's Mill at the begining of my softmore year and they would not let me test out of a class i had already taken but I knen of freshmen later that had just started up from the middle school and were allowed to take the exam and go on to the next math.
    This school is terrible to students unless they are extremly special in sports or outstanding in academics. Otherwise you have no say so in very much.
