23 Parent Reviews for South Forsyth High School

I've also noticed a slow drop-off in school quality. Lambert's opening drained a lot of great teachers and more affluent students from SFHS, which is probably why other parents are also noticing a change in the school. The increased diversity in the student body, however is nice. We are an African American ...  Read more

I am a currently a student here and all I have to say is, this school is awful. The teachers couldn't care less about the students and the on-level material they teach is like an advanced course at any other school.

re: the last review, "My current 2 attending are doing mostly AP and honors classes because even though the school has downsized, the diversity has changed and there are maybe even less expectations in regular classes." - and also in regards to previous, so what are you saying? The divers kids (i.e. ...  Read more

SFHS is a great school if you care about education and, therefore, have instilled that into your children. I have 4 children... 2 have graduated, 2 are currently attending.
