Greater Atlanta Christian school is a positive environment. As it is a college preparatory school, this high school (at least the AP route) really does prepare you for college standards. Some alumni friends of mine have said that GACS is actually harder than their freshmen year college courses. Teachers are helpful if you individually make that extra effort to come in before and/or afterschool. Most of what grades are from is homeworks. Punctuality is seemingly more important than accuracy in some classes here. If you don't study, you won't do well. This high school encompasses a progressive atmosphere!

I started school here in 6th grade and will be graduating from high school. I love this school! I wish my family would have moved to Georgia sooner so I could have attended earlier. Everyone was so nice to meet. They treated me like family (especially the band). The academics were hard, but I feel I am ready for college. There are a lot of fun activities/sports and clubs to join. The teachers are great!
I entered GAC as a sophomore and have to say that the school is truly what you make of it. There are so many different sports teams, classes, mission trips, and other opportunities to take advantage of, however if you become apathetic towards the school (as many of my classmates had), the experience may not be as great. My only critique would be that GAC can be swayed by parents with superior financial situations. Close-minded teenagers are able to complain to their parents about any small thing and teachers are punished for it. Parents can also complain about the personal lives of teachers, such as posts they make on social media or things they may retweet on twitter, which I believe is very unacceptable. GAC attempts to censor the voices of their faculty who aim to speak out against political injustice and support activist movements and by doing this they're leaving students at a disadvantage.
