Excel has been great for my kids. My oldest just graduated and because of his strong background and test scores in math he has exempted his math requirements in college. Not only has Excel provided my kids with a quality education, it has also been a place where they have been able to grow in their

Leadership is the problem here. I feel the principal has a very haughty spirit and treats people very condescendingly, parents included. I am leaving my child there for now, because academically its a superior school to anything else in Cartersville, and I am hoping for a change in leadership SOON. It

Several of my childs' friends are transferring after this school year, for this very reason. The parents can't accept the principals' way of treating people. If your purely about academics, this is a great school. If you don't like being talked down to, then stay away. They should realize that we are not sup par achievers as parents, and most of us are in the top levels of our workplace, otherwise our children wouldn't be at this school. From a parent hoping Dr. Nelson and Mr. Deems make a leadership change sooner rather than later. Read less

I'm an alumni of Excel. I loved my time there, however everything I hear now about the school is horrible. It is a fact that they can't seem to keep teachers and the turnover rate is atrocious. Grades have fallen because many of the teachers that they do have(particularly in math) are not quality. I
... Read more knew that when I graduated, I was prepared for college in most areas(especially in history!), but now I hear students worrying they won't be competitive in college because they aren't receiving an adequate education. And they aren't students just wanting to gripe but students who have been there from a young age, have loved Excel and fully expected to graduate from there. Students can't seem to transfer out fast enough now! When a school has to hire a math tutor who is not a part of the school to come in and help the kids understand concepts that they aren't getting in class there is a problem. The majority of the issues seem to stem from the current leadership who is more concerned with acting big then being a true leader. I'm worried if the Board doesn't step in and correct the leadership problems, there won't be a school left. Read less

This is a GREAT school. The elementary and middle school staff are loving and supportive and are always available if a student is in need of extra help. The highscool teachers are great people, but this highschool is very demanding. I would not, however, recomend this school for students who are in 11th

They failed to inform me of my true GPA (without Bible and elective) and I graduated without HOPE. This is a MAJOR error on their end. Read less

My child went to ECA for two years and although the school strives for academic excellence, they seem to forget about the student along the way. They are not accepting of students who do not quite 'fit the mold'. If your child is a non-conformist, I would recommend you continue looking.
