    "I've also noticed a slow drop-off in school quality. Lambert's opening drained a lot of great teachers and more affluent students from SFHS, which is probably why other parents are also noticing a change in the school. The increased diversity in the student body, however is nice. We are an African American family and our kids definitely feel comfortable attending this school. Not sure that would have been true 15 years ago."

    "I am a currently a student here and all I have to say is, this school is awful. The teachers couldn't care less about the students and the on-level material they teach is like an advanced course at any other school. Socially it is even worse, the school is very cliquey and not the best for new kids. The students are not accepting and very judgmental. I cannot wait for the day I graduate."

    "We moved here a few years ago for the schools and unfortunately it seems the schools have gone down a bit recently. My children are not in the IB program (prospective parents need to keep in mind this program is a BIG reason overall test scores at this school remain high) and I sometimes feel the teachers are teaching to the lowest common denominator and are not challenging students enough. My children have mentioned discipline/disruptive students as being an issue as well in some classes. In hindsight, if we could redo our move, we'd probably have moved to West Forsyth or even Milton instead..."

    "South Forsyth County's demographics have changed dramatically over the last couple years and unsurprisingly, this trend has had a huge impact on the South Forsyth school clusters. With increasing diversity has come new opportunities and challenges for the school. My daughter, for example, actually has picked up a great deal of Spanish outside the classroom through her friends, many of whom are Hispanic. However, she also did say that in some of her on-level courses, some of the non-native English speakers made it much more difficult for the teacher to teach. On balance, though I think the increased diversity has been a net positive!"

    "Great School. Phenomenal Faculty and Administration. Challenging Program for bright students. If you want to challenge your kids then this is the perfect school. I am so happy my daughter attends SFHS."
