Ok, I know high school is pretty far off for our kids in Elem. right now. But we are thinking about moving in a year back to the area I grew up (northern suburb of Atlanta) so I started looking on great schools today to see some reviews of the High Schools.
I have been pretty disappointed. Yes, they have high greatschools ratings (10) BUT in the parent comments there are tons of comments about drugs, cliques, etc). I remember when I was in school there, drugs were becoming a big issue but now if feels like it is so much more prevelant.
So my question is....are drugs in HS everywhere and I will have to learn to teach my kids to deal with it. To me drugs seem so much more available and prevalent in schools in the south, then mid-west. What are your thoughts? What are your worries about HS? Do you have older kids in HS now...what is their take on HS (ie. drugs, cliques, etc.)?
Thanks...I am just not sure moving back to GA is a good idea. I swore I would never go back b/c I hated living there but the financial opportunity and the lower cost of living is hard to turn down.
Looking for any feedback ~ Jen
