10 Parent Reviews for King George High School

The school has come far in the last 6 years. I'm a teacher at the school and the former reviews are irrelevant at this point. The school building is new, the stadium is new, the kids are enthusiastic about their school, and their test grades are high. For a school of only about 1,300 these students have ...  Read more

Actually the complaints about the grading system were entirely correct. KGHS was on the 7 point system through the 2008/2009 academic year. They went on the 10 point scale in 2010 due to an enormous push from parents and (some) faculty due to the inequity of the 7 point scale against other schools with ...  Read more

Overcrowding is a problem. Some teachers don't even have their own classroom. In some cases teachers are reduced to babysitting because of one or two students acting up in the classroom.

Administration does not respond or is slow (days) to respond to queries. School is absurdly overcrowded. 14 trailers. There are almost as many students in trailers as there are in classrooms. School bus system is a joke. Some kids are picked up at 6 AM to be at school at 7:30. The same buses are ...  Read more
