I wouldn't change many aspects of the school. It's diversity, the teachers' passion, the ability to take IB and AP courses, all of these I didn't trade for any other experience.

Excellent school nestled in a wonderful community. The students enjoy going to the school, and teachers enjoy teaching here. Students come from a great elementary schools and an AWSOME middle school. I thoroughly recommend sending your children here.

Rich academic experience with socio-economically diverse student body. I would not recommend if sports is a focus, but if you want an academically rich environment (steps to Emory), I'd recommend

First, I want to say that the profile, rating, and test scores listed for this school are old and inaccurate in some cases. Some of the most important statistics like awards for recent AP test performance and number of International Baccalaureate candidates receiving the diploma are completely absent from the school's profile. I have multiple children who attend this school and one child who graduated from this school in 2015. All but one of my children were in the gifted/AP/IB sequence, so I cannot speak much about the "on level" classes. My child who was not in gifted, seemed to be adequately challenged in his classes and was allowed to take AP classes when he wanted to do so which may not have been allowed at a school that has a selective admission process for AP Classes. My child who graduated in 2015 was accepted to UGA and received the Zell Miller scholarship. He had a lot of credit hours for college from his AP and IB test scores. He had wonderful, dedicated teachers throughout his education at Druid Hills. In addition to a good education, this school is one of the few places where your child can experince true diversity. This school has a wonderful mix of people from all over the world, every socioeconomic group, many different racial and ethnic groups, most major religious groups, and people who are part of the LGBT. The faculty also reflects many of these diverse perspectives. Students can take classes like AP Physics from scientists at Fernbank Science center and do dual enrollment with area colleges. This is a great school for students who want academic challenge.

The teachers literally do not care. They can take a talented kid and turn them into a demotivated depressed egg. As for attendance my kid would rather not go than be late. It was raining cats and dogs yesterday and my kid refused to go cause we had to stop because of zero visibility. My kid thought she was smart and has the test scores to prove it, now she has stated that she is incapable of doing multiple choice. Think psychological torture.... It's been five years since I've complained on this site, if i say it's bad, you better listen. As for the administration they are handling the discipline problems complained about below with people who are the same ethnicity of my child. My kid can be on the property on time and still be cited for being late and it can lead up to expulsion the smartest kid in the county.......
