    "South Gwinnett is way too easy. Recently they have been pushing students to be in AP classes, so now AP teachers have to accommodate for the students who are taking AP classes and shouldn't be. I am currently in 4 AP classes and each class is filled to the brim with students (except my AP Physics class). Teachers give students way too many opportunities for extra credit because about half the class fails the tests they give. My classmates are failing because, I hate to say it, they lack academic capacity that is needed to take these AP level tests and classes. Even with the 10 points we receive at the end of the year, most of these students are still failing which in turn makes the teacher feel bad, so they feel obligated to give out extra credit. Therefore, with AP teachers giving less challenging assignments and tons of extra credit, students like me who have been in the gifted program their whole life aren't being challenged in class anymore. I don't even remember the last time I've done homework and some how I got all A's last semester. I found myself getting 101's in two of my classes at the end of the year and having a 101 in an AP class just sounds unrealistic."

    "I am amazed too about the last review that was written. Let me begin by saying that we are in the minority however, my son has done very well at South. He is currently a Junior. He takes AP courses and honors classes and he is an A student. He did awesome on the SAT and ACT and will start dual enrollment next year. He really has done well in classes. He does tell me about things that go on at the school with the kids.I do believe that happens at all schools. Some more than others. Administration had changed a good bit. However I do believe that most teachers and staff over there care about keeping the kids out of trouble and focused on college. The few that I've dealt with in the administration have been very helpful and fair. They stay busy and stay on top of their game. I would never give this school lower than a 4. I am pleased with the teachers and staff. They are not perfect, but they do a great job. As parents, we have to do ours too."

    "South Gwinnett is a terrible school. I think because it has gotten bad reviews in the past the staff there is now over the top with discipline. My child was a straight A student all of her life until she attended south then it was constant petty phone calls from the school. The nee principal Mr. Thigpen is clueless and their lack of proper communication will cause your child to get lost in the shuffle if you allow it. If you want what is best for your child choose Grayson or Shiloh or anywhere other than south Gwinnett."
