The schools are set up to be professional, yet as you continue it's just as all mindless prison like schools following the rules without thinking having rules that make no sense for the purpose of keeping order in the schools and have you finish all the required classes for the sake of them being required.
Both of our son's graduated from Northside high school, in Houston County Georgia. Academically they both did well and had a good relationship with all of their teachers and administration. They were both involved in several clubs and extra curricular activities during their fours years attending Northside.
