    "The academics are great, teachers really work their tails off. My kids attend and I am pleased with the academics of the elementary. The high school is very political. It is all about who you are related to or know that gets you on teams, or not cut from teams. I am surprised that kids who are profiled as poor students are pulled from elective classes for extra preparation specifically to pass the EOCT. That may increase test scores for state rankings, but it kids are missing 2 days/week of classes and are supposed to be either responsible for the work or it is not supposed to count against them. Are we worried about student learning or test scores and state rankings?! As a teacher I have been told that I need to pay attention to important parents kids, and make sure I realize they all have the principals personal cell #. My kids will not attend BHS while the leadership continues down this path."

    "After paying tuition for ten years my child got kicked out for not passing one semester! Never been in trouble for anything. Maybe if they were a star football player, my child would still be there. Your child's best interest is not what Buford has, if you pay tuition,"

    "I have had many issues with this school system. In the beginning, it was great, then Geye Hamby took over and implemented mandatory uniforms (aka: dress code) without an opt-out solution (like Long Beach City schools in California), which has been inconsistently implemented throughout each school (Elementary, Academy, Middle, and High). The best point has been Dr. Banks Bitterman at BHS. He's a good principle, fair-minded, and listens to the parents, no matter their ethnicity or economic background. Any issue I have had these past few years, Dr. Bitterman has handled without hesitation; his solutions, in my belief, are always presented with what is in the best interest of all parties, but most importantly for the student(s). Buford City School system is like Cuba... You can't get out of the school system unless your child drops out and goes to college early, (or) the parents hand guardianship to someone else outside the district, (or) the family moves outside the district boundaries. I wouldn't recommend BHS to any one. Lanier HS has newer facilities, good teachers, and class options. I've tried to transfer my daughter twice, but Gw. County said no - not enough space."
