    "Overall, all of the teachers are knowledgable about the subject they teach, however, a small few do not effectively communicate the curriculum to the students. Nonetheless if a student needed additional assistance with comprehending a subject matter, they could seek help from their fellow pupils or a teacher."

    "As far as going to a main-stage production, this school is the best at it considering the minimal budget given from state and federal dollars. It is a great, professional experience for any age group, young to old. The talent is superb and the crew is professional."

    "Should be better. If you audition and screen your students, you should get better results."

    "This school has so much potential. They audition the students, and they teach fewer than 400 kids in the entire school. There are teachers in the same county who teach that many students without a staff and get better results. This school has an entire staff of people who are dedicated to teaching students they've auditioned and screened and who want to be there and yet they can't create art that gets recognized outside of their building. Something is up with that. Are the test scores high? Sure. They should be. They kids are screened and the parents are invested and required to give time. Do some of the kids have a good experience? Sure. They should. It's the ideal set up. ...but not enough of them do. Who knows why this school hasn't cut through as a national leader in the arts. It should be one, and it has all of the ingredients. It's a missed opportunity."

    "DeKalb School of the Arts teachers do the best that they can with the small amount of resources which they get from DeKalb county. Our school is incredibly underfunded but the teachers still manage to make classes engaging and ensure their students' success. I especially appreciate the history department at my school because I feel that the teachers in that department truly care about the subjects that they teach, and the students which they are teaching. I think that if my school had more money, we would be able to accomplish so much more. However, we are doing an impressive job considering the circumstances. I love the majority of the teachers at my school and I think that they are not recognized enough for the work which they put into their lessons. Additionally, many of the teachers at my school sponsor after school activities like Mock Trial or NHS, and they put in tons of extra work to make those sorts of clubs available to us. I am very grateful for my incredibly hard-working and supportive teachers, and I wish that DeKalb county would notice their dedication and give us some more resources."
