    "Personally, being a student at Arabia Mountain High School, it is defiantly challenging especially since all classes are accelerated. It takes hard work and everyday we come home with Homework and Homework And More and Projects. It's very difficult but then that's when you have to set your mind straight because at the same time us students signed up for it meaning it's going to be challenging and we have to put an effort into it. Myself personally also struggled at the beginning of the first semester and it defiantly hard to bring grades up because extra credit isn't more then 5points or lower. So I would have to ask for pets say different worksheets, more homework. Some of the test are very hard to complete only if you study and I promise that's a 100% on your paper. Also just going to high school is very hard then having to go home and do your homework for all seven classes then study for test that's has to be taken the next day is honestly tiring and it's very hard. But then once again we signed up for it. So we must put in the effort and we have to put in the effort. So being a student personally at Arabia Mountain High School is tiring, all sweat and tears, but all Worth It."

    "My child is ending his 9th grade in a few weeks. My opinion about the school Is the accelerated courses are challenging. However, when you have teacher(s) practically abandon their responsibility to teach as a consequence your child's grades suffer. For ex. One paticular teacher went on leave and my child was given printed packets to complete daily and ovet 25 on line assessments to complete within 8 weeks plus several projects no feedback was given etc. Also, my child had to manage his other courses most with weekly projects. I am furious this happened administrators appear to be clueless when you If I feel like this a parent I think a parent center would provide better support. The priority of collaboration among teachet will allow them to bettet plan workload for studentd talk e them. On the othet hand the children are bright and have put on wonderful weekend events at the school ex: Ramboree carnaval and health fair. I'm not sure my child my be pushef out the school."

    "This is a great career preparation school that focuses on medicine, environmental and engineering. The involvement of the parents are amazing and the school is completely diverse with student from all over DeKalb county who are enrolled. There is always something for the students and parents to get involved in together building the family bond. I encourage anyone looking for a school to prepare their son or daughter for college and the real world to look at the benefits of attending Arabia Mountain High School."

    "There are so many safety nets for our students- late homework opportunities, retakes on tests, recovery tests, remediation plans with opportunities to make up zeros. But there are absolutely no incentives for teachers. Most of the teachers are worse than the students- they don't follow the rules and don't come to duty. Many teachers gave final exams early, teachers don't ever post grades, it just goes on and on. Administration is not supportive. There are teachers who do their job well and help the students succeed and they are completely overlooked by administration. There are no consequences either for those teachers who do nothing. There are even math teachers who aren't even certified teachers! No wonder the EOCT scores are horrible. Administrators need to crack down on the teachers and it would trickle down to the students. Get rid of the horrible teachers who don't do their job and the great teachers might stay."
