    "just a couple of normal day to day things: - keeps bathrooms locked all day, only unlocked in between classes. WE CANT CONTROL NORMAL BODILY FUNCTIONS??? - use of many trailers which contain roughly 30 students, 30 desks, 30 chairs, all in space that could comfortably fit about 15 people with no equipment. - sexist in terms of dress code BY FAR (females always getting the short end of the stick) - unhappy office staff, especially principals. they never seem positive and it makes you feel like school should be exactly like their facial expressions - teachers are under MUCH stress in terms of what they need to teach us, and the stress easily transfers to us. - councilors don't even try to view anything from a student's point of view. they'll say whatever benefits the school. - If you're not an athlete, do you even go here? - students only care about how rich they're parents are. if you don't have the nicest car or the most expensive clothes, then why even go here?? - DIRTY. chewing tobacco between bleachers... need i say more? we're actually having to move because of how bad the schools are. All henry county schools are pretty much the same anyway."

    "Hidden and blatant racism is more than evident at this school. I was saddened when my daughter came home and said children choose to segregate themselves at lunch (and the principles not addressing this) and racist remarks as well as disparaging treatment from teachers often occur. The fact that this school is 15min from the heart of our diverse city of Atlanta is simply appalling."

    "I graduated from UGHS in '05. I have moved on to earn a B.S. I didn't receive much attention at this school. I taught myself nearly everything. I don't know if the teachers that I had are still working at this school, but the ones I had really didn't show any attention nor did they try to help. I received more help from professors at the University I attended. I really hope that it has changed."

    "I think this school is very overrated. It's superficial. I came from a disadvantaged school towards the end of the year knowing the good status and high standards expected of me and was ready to be pushed to better my GPA. However, when I arrived nobody gave me any information. I never met any of the staff, never got a rule book or agenda, and was constantly scolded for things I knew nothing about. It was a complete shock and nobody made me feel welcome. The students looked down on me, or just blatantly ignored me. My grades plummeted and thanks to no help from the teacher, even when sought out. I was made to feel stupid and inferior to everyone. Disgusting and disrespectful."
