    "My son transferred from Roswell H.S., GA as an honor student 2 years ago. Now he is failing. I have encountered an enormous amount of apathy and outright hostility from teachers and administrators at Baldwin H.S. One administrator stated, "Well, Roswell is much easier than Baldwin." WHAT A JOKE! Roswell H.S. sends kids to Ivy League and prestigious universities such as Emory and Duke on a regular basis! My son's "F"'s are mainly due to classroom participation and days he missed because of suspensions due to dress code violations. An administrator argued with me that his maroon shirt was not a shade of red! His I.D. card was once flipped over backwards without him noticing. One science teacher failed him on a research paper because my son stated that Stephen Hawking 's work often overlapped philosophy due to questions about the origin of the universe and the nature of consciousness. The teacher chided, "You don't even know the difference between social studies and science!" I went to an administrator and was dismissed because she apparently couldn't even fathom this debate. GOOD RIDDANCE BALDWIN! I found a new job in a different county."

    "My daughter has been at B.H.S. through ninth grade. She barely passed. We transferred from Orlando, FL, and one of the assistant principals had the ignorance to predict, "Your daughter may have trouble here. We are a lot harder than Florida's schools..." HUH? Georgia is usually 48th or 49th in national ratings. The administrator informed me that good behavior and compliance were heavily weighted in their scoring procedures. Once again...HUH? The BHS mission statement says they are primarily there to prepare kids for college. Where does it mention good behavior and compliance? My daughter barely passed and is going to summer school. I am thinking of enrolling her in Georgia's Cyber Academy. I can't move right now because of work and can't afford a private school. In addition to constant teasing , bullying and profanity used by other students, the teachers and administrators act like they don't care what happens to the kids or how they perform. Teachers regularly don't show for 5th block and then give kids a zero for not completing the work scheduled for 5th block. The last straw was when my daughter was suspended for wearing a belt with a Salvadro Dali design."

    "I graduated from Baldwin High School. I took all of the AP classes that were offered at the time and participated in the joint enrollment program with GC&SU, so I was able to graduate with some college credits already under my belt. The majority of the teachers I had at BHS cared about creating a challenging and engaging classroom experience."

    "I had thought that BHS would be an adequate school until my daughter attended there this year. Out of contact with about 20 staff members, I can say only 2 or 3 seemed devoted and professional. I often found no front desk personnel available when I arrived for conferences, and I would be confronted curtly after waiting 20 minutes and trying to walk to a different office such as the counselors' center and told to go back to the front. Mainly, I have been disgusted with many teacher's comments such as, "What you want me to do about it?" when I explained that my daughter was struggling and that I wanted to help or devise a plan of action. One example involves a period called "fifth block" when teachers are supposed to be available to give individualized help. I rarely found the teachers at school when we scheduled these, and oncemy wife and daughter saw the fifth block teacher leaving when they arrived for fifth block. The teacher scawled, slammed her car door, stalked into the building and yelled, "I don't know why she even comes! It's not helping her!" My daughter has a 504 plan. Only one teacher met with us all year for a scheduled conference."

    "As a student at BHS in the nineties, I loved it. I felt like I left prepared for college and I really enjoyed my four years there. Now I have a child there. The administration waits at least a month before informing you that your child has received an ISS day. You never know about any discipline problems or potential problems with grades until much later. If it wasn't for me being a very involved parent, and going after the information I want, I'd never know what's going on up there."
