    "Baker County High School located in Newton, Georgia is a very small but good school. There's plenty of 1 on 1 help, and the administration keeps the school under a firm control."

    "This school needs help all around. You would think since it's a small town school that they would actually help the kids there but there are a lot of the so called teachers there who seriously need to be evaluated. They need to LEARN how to encourage their students instead of always giving up so easily. A teacher there told my son that he didn't care anymore and he gave up on him. That teacher should have been terminated! Our kids education matter and so does their future! A lot of the adults at this school need to get their certification snatched away quick!! I've also observed issues with race. It's just ridiculous! Another thing is the principal along with his staff need to keep their hands to themselves. Overall I know the town needs a school for the kids there but what's the point when they are not uplifting our kids and encouraging them that they can be and do whatever they want as long as they put their mind to it and don't give up hope! There is no such thing as " I CAN'T "."
