    "I think Garrett is a okay school .. I've been here since the 6th grade and i've been in the advanced placement classes sine, but in sixth grade we had 3 wonderful teachers but when we were in the 7th grade they were all gone we had 3 teachers. They are still here in my 8th grade year we want them all gone they dont teach us anything , they are very rude , disrespectful and dishonest. I am looking into going to Lindley or East Cobb for the rest of my 8th grade year. im just being completely honest."

    "I honestly think that Garrett middle school should have some changes done to it, I don't like the way how students act during school hours and how there aren't any expectations and/ or organization. What I'm trying to figure out is why isn't there any signs in the hallway to tell where what class is where?"

    "Garrett is the best school you can ever go to because everybody is supportive to the needs of others and to the community. I remember, in 6th grade I was having a hard time with math due to Autism in 2011 . I was definitely falling behind. Luckily, I asked for my friends and caseworkers help and now I'm an honor roll student thanks to everybody. Did you know that there's a Men Of Destiny group that shows you how to be a gentlemen, role model, and shows you how to complete goals without messing up in Mr.Perry's classroom in 8th grade. Also, all of you parents that still think teachers and administrators worry only about their pay checks are wrong. Why because my 7th grade teachers Mrs. Tatum, Mr.Fields,Mrs.Jenkins, Mr.Mcgahey,Mr. Taylor, Mrs.Shivers, Mrs.Dabrio, Mrs.Howard, and Mr.Howard all care about the students education. Also, Mrs.Amulet, Mrs. Singleton, Officer Meeks, Mr. Parker,Mrs.Carter,Mr. Defreezer, and our principal Dr. Harris always make sure that everybody's behavior is in line for the entire school year.~ Caleb Pierce"

    "I would never recommend this school for anyone! I am aiming hard to have my children away from this district before the beginning of a new school year. The teachers amd some administration is very unprofessional! My child grades has slipped and his whole outlook has changed. It has been told to me that the school is flooded with drugs and gangs . The administration so busy trying to make themselves look good they make complaints and suspend the kids who are really no big threat! They should take the time and effort to find the bigger problems and correct them. They should also make some of those teachers go back and take some refresher courses maybe the students would do better academically! Don't get me wrong there are some staff who are there cause they love their jobs but there are also those who are just there for a pay check! Horrible school low grades, low budget teachers, administration and no extra curriculum activities..."

    "This school is horrible. In sixth grade I was bullied,and when i went to the consular she did nothing.The 7th grade administrator will give you OSS (out of school suspension) for any reason (even over things she's not allowed to do). Before I came to this school I was an A/B student,now because of horrible teachers I'm now a B/C student with the occasional A..I have all advanced/gifted classes,and there are only a few high quality teachers at this school. Some of the teachers,are very disorganized,and do not know what they're teaching. There are also a lot of fights monthly. In February there were 7 fights alone. The lunch and breakfast are actually very good,but very greasy. We have a very good principal. Overall I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone.I cant wait till I go to a different school for 8th grade."
