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!

Great school! Most teacher are caring and do their best to genuinely help their students when they are struggling. Sometimes the administrators are stubborn and not helpful, but under perseverance they eventually listen.
One of the things that stick out the most at Greater Atlanta Christian School is that the teachers genuinely care about their students and that care is evident. While some teachers may not be perfect, there is a large majority of them that are truly concerned about the well-being of their students and seeing their students succeed. As for change, I would like to see a more open line of communication between the student body and the administration, specifically in the high school. As teenagers nearing adulthood, I think that it would be beneficial for the school to pay more attention to the feelings of the student body and offer more opportunities to discuss them within a safe environment.
