    "Overall is a great SMALL school, sure there are some flaws with going to such a small school, like having to go to Grady for sports or a packed school. These kind of things don't make this a bad school though, it is all on the students, whether they decide to pay attention in class or not is on them, not the teachers. The teachers do their JOB as best as they can."

    "This school is great! I'm very happy that I'm here. Rachel Carson is very small school and everyone is friendly to each other and we're like a big family. Teachers are amazing, they always help you out if you need anything!"

    "WORST SCHOOL EVER!!!! Absolutely no organization or communication between anyone! The students are rude and can barely pass anything. The Admin doesn't do their job at all! The teachers are the only decent thing about this place. -_-"

    "I could go on forever, but don't send your child here unless you're used to a mediocre education. Sure, the teachers are funny, but the other students are confused about things I had no problem with in middle school. The English teachers let them get away with poor literary skills, math teachers are way behind, there are classes that aren't necessary that no student wants or takes seriously and end up failing. The teachers degrade students and call them names when they're mad and the students still consider them their favorite. There aren't many programs or classes you can take to try and put all the faults behind you. Do yourself and your kid a favor and don't let them attend this school. There isn't much of a good crowd for your kid to fall into anyway. Academically and socially your child won't be getting anywhere. A last resort at best."

    "The teachers are super funny & know how to make learning a gift rather then a bore. And the possibilites for a scholarship are much higher due to the low number of students, it feels like a huge family rather then just a building with students. There's no highschool i'd rather attend"
