Gotha Middle School Reviews
Gotha middle school is a awesome middle school. I went their from the six grade all the way to the eighth grade and it had a little ups and downs but the down never top the ups. Many say their gangs and drugs(which is about 25% true) but you will never actually see it .it has a myriad of classes to choose from and a great staff, I would recommend your children to go their if that's a possibility.
This school has been dealing with long standing issues related to bullying and apathy. The solutions implemented year after year merely are of form, but not of any real substance. Although there are some really good teachers working there, I have seen a hostile learning environment even in the classrooms where a teacher belittles, embarrasses and ridicules her honors math students, year after year. Go ahead and believe the cheerleaders if you want, the truth is very different if you have ongoing contact with many students from GMS.
We are starting our first school year in 2010. I've heard great things about the school. My son's looking forward to playing for the school and showing his team spirit.
