    "I am a senior at lassiter. I suppose it would be easier to separate into pros and cons. Pro: Great teachers who truely care about their students Pro: Supierior athletics and arts programs. They are better than any other in cobb, let alone the state. Pro: good academics, if your child is smart Con: if you are a football player, you receive immunity from pretty much any disciplinary action. Con: very cliquey. I have a good amount of friends, but it is hard to break into a friend group Con: lack of diversity. Pretty much all kids are from upper class families. If you do not fall into that catagory, you might be treated with disrespect. Overall, this is a great school if you are an upper class kid who is smart and gifted. But if not, you may be better off somewhere else, such as Pope or Kell."

    "My son was new and just started this year and for the first week he sat alone at lunch.None of the teachers or students stepped in to help him meet people. Also, on the first day of school he got an entirely new schedule so the Freshman walk through was for nothing. He had no idea where any of his classes were. I am not sure why that happened but I was upset. Besides that he is adjusting well to the academics i just wish the school wasn't so cliquey. It has been very hard for my son to make friends because everyone seems to already be paired up with their groups. I hope things improve soon for him in this area."

    "Lassiter is an extremely good school, and beautiful. It's mostly clean; the administration is absolutely proficient and commendable! The academic aspect of this school is exceptional. I'm not an extremely smart student, but i have a few AP and Honors classes and on the subjects that I struggle in I'm on level. If an on level class is too easy for you then you NEED to take an honors class to challenge yourself abit. The worst problems in this school is the drug use of the students. Practically half of the school, if not more than half, uses some kind of drug or drinks some kind of alcoholic beverage normally. And the social aspect... ufff... I wouldn't say people there are racist, I'd say MANY of the people that go there, of ALL races, look down on the other races. The school is made up of cliques and little/big groupies. The school is really very separated racially, but the teachers do a good job in staying neutral if THEY have racial issues."

    "The orchestra is fantastic. If you fit into the cookie-cutter mold, the school is great. "No bullying here"? Don't make me laugh. Even the teachers that wanted to help my daughter couldn't. She wound up transferring out instead of dropping out entirely. Instead of kudos for trying to help find her way back, she was questioned and ridiculed by guidance and her teachers. She found the other school, they didn't suggest it. Yet, the way the system is set up, she still has to get a Lassiter diploma. :( Teachers are on either end of the spectrum - not a lot in the middle; the principal that was there when she was concentrated on football. That the rest of it fell into place was luck, I guess. The PTSA is fantastic, and is the strongest point that the school has. So much potential wasted. Sad."
