    "In the past four years, this school has really taken a nosedive academically. test scores are down, teacher respect is nonexistent, and behavior problems (i.e. drug usage, fights, and bullying) are on the rise. Football players are given immunity, and chaos often ensues because of it. I know several of my favorite teachers left (two of them even took a pay cut to go somewhere else) because they were fed up with the administration and plummeting standards. I've compared my education with those that I went to college with, and the differences have been astounding. I had to do so much extra work just to get on their level my freshman year. I would tell anyone living in the area to drive a few extra miles and go to a neighboring town's school."

    "I find nothing, except perhaps the football program, exceptional about the school. Though there are some great teachers, the majority are forced to turn a blind eye to any misconduct of football players. The admin. is very poor in my ipinion."

    "I was a former studen at gilmer high school and graduated there in 2006, the best experience i have had at a school, they had alot of clubs to be apart of and alot of extracurricular activities to be in and you were never bored there, the teachers cared about your grade and you as a person, and the students were friendly and careful also, i am happy to say i graduated there."

    "Terrible school system. Academically unacceptable. The schools answer to children not doing well in school is to send the child to summer school. By miracle, the child passes classes in a short number of weeks that they could not pass before in months of study. I pulled my child out of the school system because of this. Child could not do the work when I tested them. Superintendent had the same answer. Send to summer school. Maybe someone needs to clean the house at this place and start over. I know many parents that have had the same problem."

    "My daughters previously attended a Christian school, with extremely strict academic values. Although I strongly agree with the Christian values of Gilmer High School, I am disappointed with the academic and teaching structure. I feel much time is wasted in the classroom."
