My child just graduated from North Atlanta High School and was admitted (early decision) to one of the top public universities in this country. I think that says it all.

We love the North Atlanta High School community -- wonderful students, parents, teachers, coaches and a beautiful new facility.

My son is in the IB Program at NAHS. It is definitely challenging but I never hear him complain. Not only do his teachers know him well, but also most of the staff at NAHS . He has thrived in the busy environment and has time for after school activities. I look forward to having my younger child go there because NAHS continues to improve every year!

This school is a hidden gem in the already strong Northern Cluster of schools. The principal weaknesses are the APS administration and the historic lack of breadth in parental involvement. Those two deficiencies are being addressed, thanks to a new school board and Superintendent, and a terrifically-engaged core group of parents who are changing the paradigm around parental involvement. I believe our child will be very well prepared for life after high school because of our decision to send her here. The teachers are fantastic as a whole. If your child wants and needs an engaging school experience, this is a very good option.

I am a parent of two children who have been in the aps northern cluster of schools since they started kindergarten. We have been very pleased with each of the schools, North Atlanta in particular. The teachers are wondetful and my children are thriving. I feel they will be well prepared for college and beyond, especially in the ib program. The parents are all dedicated and spend numeroes hours helping at school. We, as a community, are fortunate to have North Atlanta in our cluster .

I have 2 kids that are taking AP and IB Diploma Program courses. There is plenty of rigor to be found at North Atlanta. There is a niche for every type of learner and every type of personality. It's a large public school so come with a positive attitude and roll up your sleeves to help make it better and better. I'm an involved parent, so if a concern arises, I address it quickly and in a positive manner. I think that's the key to a satisfactory experience at any school. APS is making major changes downtown so that bodes well for our future. Another good sign is that my kids enjoy their school despite the ups and downs that APS has created for us. It's really all about the teachers---we have so many great ones. The kids will attest to that. I do think we need more administrative support though. Our big campus could use more staff!

North Atlanta is a school that is disorganized and segregated. If your child is not in honors classes or above, it's like the teachers do not care. They let the classes run with little prep, structure, or direction. I have one son who is in 9th grade and another who will be going to 9th grade and I'm desperately looking for another school. The school might be beautiful, but it is a clear example of why one should not judge a book by it's cover.

I had a bad experience at North Atlanta High School. My son attended the school for three years and Im not judging the school based off of him but based on the way the faculty handled problems, professionalism,lack of regard for parents, no control of students, etc..I feel the school needs more qualified office staff, more friendly officials, more order in the school. I liked the school when it was at the old location better. The new school is like an office couple, doesn't even seem like a school. The staff, the teachers seem to have no etiquette or friendliness at all to parents. I really am clueless to what a mess this school is in and what a waste of tax money.. I took my child from the school and will gladly pay $30k a year for a quality and caring educational environment at a private school.....Sorry I wasted my time and my child's time...Decisions about schools affect your childs entire life...........

I have a sophomore, senior (and a graduate who is doing very well in college) at North Atlanta High School. The IB program is fabulous and prepares the students well for college. Five years ago I did not feel comfortable sending my children to this school, but now I feel totally comfortable and it is due to the hard work and dedication of Mark Mygrant and the other team members that were ousted by Errol Davis and his cronies on the APS school board. Yes, we are excited about Dr Taylor coming and I am certain that he will make some positive well needed changes, but the way the transistion was handled was UNPROFESSIONAL and unjustifiable. The facts and figures Errol threw around have proven to be untrue,. His actions were politically motivated and he needs to GO. We must not let his contract be extended.

I am the parent of a sophomore. I went to the number 1 ranked public high school in the nation. NAHS isn't anywhere close. The teaching is mediocre, at best, and the administrative staff, up to now has proven to be below average. One of the most recent hires, a chemistry teacher, appears to be disinterested in her subject area and students. An honors English teacher was brought on a month after the school year began, despite the fact that the administration had many months foreknowledge that the her predecessor was retiring. There are frequent fights among students - particularly among the girls - it appears. The only light at the end of the tunnel is that the Superintendent of APS is finally cleaning house. But, the jury is still out. The new guys has a challenging job awaiting. He begins next week.

We decided to try public school after moving from S. Fulton, after reading some reviews about the programs offered. What a mistake, the students are divided totally along racial lines, with inappropriate language and respect issues unchecked. It's a shame ,but students shouldn't have to fend off constant harassment and clicks, let alone elements that are dangerous. Back to private school!

I am currently a Junior at NAHS in the Journalism SLC. I love the school and would recommend it to most people. There is a sense of community and diversity at our school that my private school friends dont have or understand. I think the classes are less challenging than some other schools in the area, but the IB program is very good and prepares you well for collage. Teachers at NAHS are just like at other schools, sometimes they are great, sometimes not so great. The International Studies SLC is the best SLC for a more serious student because most of the students have similar motivation. We have a very diverse set of electives including 4 languages (French, Spanish, Chinese, and Arabic), several art classes, dance classes, drama classes, guitar, music tech, newspaper, film, anthropology, and yearbook just to name a few. The best part of this school isnt the academics though, they are good, and students have proven you can get into a good school (last year a friend of mine went to Harvard), but it is the life experience. I met people at NAHS I would never have met at private schools in the area and I feel like because of that I will be able to function better in a normal world.

This is a horrible school where incompetent teachers are protected and communication with parents is greatly discouraged. Get your child in another school if at all possible.
