    "I am a student at Druid Hills High School class of 2015 currently enrolled in AP classes along with many of the clubs at Druid Hills. The three main issues at Druid Hills discipline, and lack of qualified staff and the community. On the topic of discipline its not uncommon to witness 2-4 fights a week or kids walking down the hallway with ankle monitors and when its comes to punish kids for there actions its just a slap on the wrist. When it comes to the staff there are good teachers but they are few and far between due to budget cuts and rowdy kids you fail to be disciplined many just leave and the ones you stay just don't care and could care less about your education. I find myself having to reteach myself because the teacher decided that playing solitaire or updating there Facebook profile was more important and if they do teach its so vague no one learns the information. Lastly the community of Druid Hills, surrounding Druid Hills are million dollar homes and evolved parents but they've all left because the county would not listen to there input (like becoming a charter school) letting the school degrade so they just left. Druid Hills sets students up for failure."

    "My school is kinda sad. There is little discipline, students wear whatever they want, they talk back to teachers, some have ankle monitors on, it's really sad. If your kid is going to attend DHHS make sure you do a school tour first. My mom said almost no coaches attend the athletic fundraiser. Ask the school for information on how often the police are called to the school. I am often scared for my safety at DHHS. If you are new to Dekalb, be sure to go online and read about the school board, and how they turned down the charter cluster that the parents wanted. It's really sad."

    "Druid Hills is an outstanding school. I have one child that graduated in 2013 and went on to university with a full scholarship. She was truly prepared academically for the college experience and is doing very well. My second child is graduating in 2015. Both have been given a rigorous curriculum and outstanding access to AP classes. The instructors, with the exception of one, has shown they truly love what they do. If you have students that are ready to learn, the opportunity for an excellent education is there."

    "Druid Hills has had a great past. Unfortunately the future looks bleak. Discipline continues to be a problem at my school. Many of my classes are overcrowded, and frankly, many of my classmates don't try at all. I'm really tired of all the backtalk and disrespect shown the teachers and staff. The next two years are not going to be fun."
