    "I think it's interesting that the person below has a masters degree and thinks public school is free. the school rates higher because it takes only the smartest kids in the district- and if you read the comments the student discusses the poor state of the building and the high incidence of student sickness-" so do your work" - really? While most teachers at this school are fabulous there are still some major problems here that the administration continues to not address It's also interesting how so many negative comments about this school are deleted"

    "This is an amazing school. My daughter has attended for the last two years. The teachers are terrific (with of course, a few exceptions). Its the best college prep school in the state and one of the best public schools in the nation. Its not easy to get in - have to meet academic criteria and go thru an interview process. Look it up - its ranked in the top 100 public high schools in the nation and for very good reason. My comment to the negative comment below - do your work, get help if you are struggling, attend classes and you will have great success here. It might not be to best public art schools (remember its public and free) but its one of the best overall schools for education and college prep. These students are getting an amazing education at a public school. It's rated higher than nearly every private school in the state and nation. I am a state school product with a master's degree. I can only wish I would have had an opportunity to attend a high school this good!"

    "Savannah Arts acadamy is a complete disaster on almost every level, people who don't pass their courses are thrown out of the school and there is no room for redemption as one of my good friends was thrown out at the begining of the year. Many teachers only put in grades when there jobs are threatened and usually well after progress reports are due, and an overall lazy staff makes students suffer. The students are suffering from teachers that think they are right on, in all levels and on all subjects. A lack of bad money placement has led to broken windows and a school that can under no circumstances pass a health inspection for a teaching instituion. Overall this school has fired the teachers doing their jobs, has kept those that don't and is harmful to a students well being. They force Conformity and a lack off compassion for students can lead to unhealthy mental stress and with unhealthy working conditions, thus in turn leading to people with low immune systems. Don't attend this school unless you want to be sick with a cold all year struggling to catch up with teachers who don't care if you learn the material, because they can just throw you out to keep up their school rating."
