Druid Hills Middle has many great opportunities but it's lacking in many areas. I was a student there and I found that I wasn't being challenged at all. I've moved on to a magnet school that is ranked second in the state and it is so much different. At DHMS I wasn't having to work hard to maintain good ...  Read more

So far, I am happy with this school. I do drive out of district to take my son each day, but so far, it has been well worth it. The teachers seem to be up to par & passionate about teaching. I do understand that there is 1 teacher that can't really handle disruptive students, but nowhere is perfect, ...  Read more

So far, I am thoroughly pleased with this school. My daughter is motivated to earn straight A's. Majority of her teachers have over 15 years teaching experience. The diversity makes the school what it is.

If you want ...  Read more

If I could give this school a rating smaller than one star, I would. I can't because then it won't post my review. I was a student here, and I had to leave mid-year to be home-schooled. Although there is a gifted class, the only difference between it and regular classes is the amount of homework, and ...  Read more

This school used to be called Shamrock Elementary School until last year. It's in a decent neighborhood, not great, but decent. It feeds from Briar Vista, Fernbank, Briarcliff and other elementary schools that were affected by the new re-zoning plan that took place last year. The truth: 1. A lot of diversity. ...  Read more

This school is a joke. The administration is ineffective, choosing to focus on minor issues (such as an untucked shirt) while serious issues (bullying, threats of physical violence) go without notice. The principals don't bother to get to the heart of any problems. They simply dole out punishments and ...  Read more

One mission that this school fulfills well is the excellent International Bacalaureate program. They take language instruction seriously (exploratory Spanish and French in 6 with Carnegie in 7 and 8). Diversity and tolerance are welcomed -- and the kids come from all over the world, the US, and metro ...  Read more

Not allowing students to condiments and other foods to banging on the roof of the parent's car when they're there for pickup... Like one of the reviewers said, this sounds like a prison to me.
