    "A majority of classes are accelerated, making it very difficult for an athlete to keep up. There are eight classes in a semester versus four classes at the area schools. Some of the teachers/staff are perceived to be professional and are very much the opposite. My daughter, an athlete would be finishing homework at 2-3am in order to keep up. The school will nickel and dime you for everything. My total cost for senior year, including, senior dues, senior trip, graduation stuff, senior pictures, sports fees & gear costs, prom fees, tests fees and college apps were approximately $2000+. I originally had two children who started at Arabia; however, my son was transferred back into the home school after his sophomore year. He is currently a straight A student and his self-esteem is no longer broken. Both of my children struggled with 9th grade Algebra of which no books were made available. The teacher was horrible. Lastly, my son has suggested that because of his light complexion, the male chemistry and biology teachers treated him and other male students differently. On a good note, parents care about their students education, the wardrobe is set and the students are focused."

    "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."
