Greater Atlanta Christian School Reviews

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!

GAC offers a wonderful student experience with awesome faculty and facilities. The teachers are invested in making sure the students succeed. The diversity is getting better each year with new students and teachers from different ethnic backgrounds and circumstances. The classrooms and sports facilities are state of the art and aid the learning environment on and off the field to nurture student-athletes. GAC is taking the right steps forward in allowing more student involvement in decisions, and they seek to protect students from harm while on campus with round the clock security. The curriculum is challenging, but that is needed to be successful in college and life beyond high school.
I think the teachers overall are very high quality, especially those who teach the AP and Honors classes. The school is very diverse, far more than our public school. Parents of all ethnicities are involved in leadership roles with the parent association and the board of trustees, which lends a more inclusive feel to the school. The sports are stellar, and well-funded. The arts are stellar, but not as well-funded. This leads to my main criticism of the high school which is that the principal and deans are all ex-jocks or sports coaches. I think the high school administration needs better balance and would benefit from an infusion of stronger leadership. The longtime head of school is retiring this year. It remains to be seen if the new leader has what it takes. The college counseling team is a particular strength, far greater than any private school I’ve encountered. My older child was well prepared for college and I feel that my youngest is also.
