    "The general feel of the school is extremely diverse in most aspects of the student body. Looking at each grade level, the top 25% of each grade is extremely competitive, which can be stressful for those who fall in that range. About 70% of the student body is engaged with extracurricular clubs and teams, which creates a feeling of school pride. Everyone is generally pretty accepting of everyone else and people do a good job of keeping an open mind. Student leadership emphasizes looking out for peers, so after school tutoring on a peer-to-peer basis is strongly encouraged in order to ensure the graduation rate stays high."

    "Overall, this school excels greatly in academics and even clubs/activities. The majority of the teachers are encouraging students to take AP courses and helping expand our capabilities. They believe we as students can surpass any advanced classes, as long as we work hard and give effort. Whether we pass our AP Exams or not, the teachers will still encourage us to take them. Regardless of the AP courses, the teachers at this school are very knowlegeable. Every teacher has its own teaching method, including grading practices, which improves the work performance of students. The workload may be hard on the students, but it helps students understand what they're learning. As a result, the students become knowlegeable because the teachers are knowlegeable. As for clubs/activities, there is a variety that can relate to a person's interest, including art, foreign languages, history, games, and even one for anime. There are also national organizations, including National Honors Society, DECA, Habitat for Humanity, Red Cross, and Future Business Leaders of America. Overall, this just shows that academics are important to the school for the students and that there are many activities that we can enjoy and experience."

    "There is a lot of pressure at the school for students to take AP classes, which is both good and bad. For those who need to be pushed a little, it is useful, however those classes are not for everyone, which is an attitude that needs to be shown more. The advanced class teachers seem to be of a much higher caliber for the most part when compared to some of the lower level classes, with a few exceptions. The workload is manageable, especially if not taking AP classes, but there will always be nights which have a lot to do."

    "While attending Peachtree Ridge high school, I loved all my teachers because they genuinely cared about my education and gave me the individual help when needed."

    "Overall, the teachers are very knowledgeable and do their best to keep students engaged. There are a few sub-par teachers teaching lower level classes, but the vast majority care about the success of their students. There is a major push with all of the teachers to incorporate more and more technology in the classroom, especially when using project based, real world learning."
