  • The school is utterly horrible.
    Many of the teachers talk down to their students, the school lunch is awful (and I mean AWFUL), most of the staff can't do their jobs (like the guidance counselors and attendance keepers). During the 3 years I've been in Thomas County Central High Scholl, I've experienced a lot of racism (and not only towards black kids- I've actually heard I black girl say "ew! it smells like white people in here!"-- and no one said anything about it). My freshman year, a group of boys tried to pull me in the boys restroom because they thought that I was the "freshest meat", and there was no on of authority to "witness" the incident. I just can't believe the things that happen in this school-- the staff members, the teachers, and even my fellow students are shocking. If you can, spare your child if this school. I truly believe that he or she will hate it just as much as I do.

  • This school, Is fun. Very educational. Your kids will love it. It is easy for your kids to fit in here, Because we base them on score grades so all the kids in one class get each other and are pushed to succed not slowed down by other students.
