Being smaller than DeKalb and Fulton Counties, Fayette is absolutely fabulous! The staff seems to really care, (from the administrators down to the teachers). I'm impressed with the academics and the athletics are improving, especially after having a former Olympian graduate from a Fayette County School. My family and I have only been in Fayette since the start of the 2017-2018 school year. My son has blossomed before my very eyes and is thriving at Bennett's Mill Middle School.

My biggest concern about the schools here in Peachtree City is that not all of the teachers seem to care about helping the students to understand the assigned material. My child has been in the gifted program since 1st grade but has struggled this year because it seems the teachers are not effectively teaching the required information. Requests for explanation seem to fall on deaf ears and emails go unanswered. This is a frustrating situation for both students and parents. I also do not understand that if so much of the class work/homework is to be done online, then why can’t all teachers post the necessary information about assignments online as well. They require the students to use Blackboard but then fail to post the assignments on there. It is very difficult to keep up with the work if they aren’t sure exactly what/when assignments are due.
As a student alumni from one of the Fayette County High School, I would like to say that Fayette County Public Schools are more academically inclined compared to other county's I've attended high school. The schools are highly diverse which didn't make me feel like I was an outcast because I am usually considered a minority. The majority of teachers do prepare students for college, but there is just a handful of teachers who doesn't seem to care enough. If you or your child want to be prepared for college, I recommend taking AP and honor courses or even trying dual enrollment.
