28 Parent Reviews for Alcovy High School

This school lacks leadership and accountability. I do know the principle is new so I will give her a chance. This school is full of hoodlums and not because it's quite a few African Americans but because of the mentality. I am African American and I don't want my son at this school. Also some of the ...  Read more

My 4th child graduates this Friday. Her entire career at this school, all spent in AP classes, she was assigned one ridiculous, elemntary-school project after another. Building dioramas and making scrapboooks in her senior AP Macro class, yet she was never ONCE assigned to write a RESEARCH paper. The ...  Read more

I had a great high school experience here. Class of 2013. I'm really going to miss it. Most of the teachers are amazing, although a few fell through the cracks. Ms Boyim is the greatest math teacher in the history of math! If you struggle in math, try to get her as your teacher and you'll soar,

This school is horrible!!!!! Do not move here or enroll your teens if you care about their future. The kids are beyond control and are a bunch of hoodlums. I am here but trust we are moving. I thought it was a good school, especially since its new but Newton county redrew the school lines so now ALL ...  Read more

I have a senior who made honor roll this year and also honor roll for 9-12 grades. Her teachers really made it possible for her to really be something when she graduates. I have a junior son who is doing well in his classes and loves his teachers. On the other hand, I have a 9th grader in which I ...  Read more

i feel that majority of the teachers are failing at their job terribly. the school is more concerned with phones than drugs.

Both of my honor roll children seem to be getting a great education here. They both have been honor roll students since they began 3 years ago.

There are alot of issues that the teachers dont deal with. Behavior or grades. I have a teacher that everytime i go to ask her about my grades she blows me off completely and tells me that she isnt talking about it right now. But then again she never wants to talk about it. The teachers are not willing ...  Read more
