Forsyth High Schhool has now gone to all computers with no books at all. Parents are now required to pay yearly fees for their children to have the required laptops and if something breaks, Parents must shell out more money, a total of $500 if it needs to be replaced entirely. They cover repairs that they deem to be caused by everyday ware and tare, but that doesn't seem to be very much. If your child has to go without a laptop for a few days while it's being repaired they simply must suffer without it, which means they may not be able to complete their homework on time and be penalized. (Most homework must be submitted online) Internet at home is also essential if your child wants to pass their classes. So low income families are forced into buying something that isn't a necessity because the school has made it one. There is a McDonalds in town where kids can use internet, but then that also costs gas. It's also the main hang out for kids after school; so it's not a very good place to try to concentrate on homework. They've provided next to no resources to parents, making it very difficult to help your child at home. They seem to have taken no effort in educating the students what reliable resources are on the internet and how to find them. Most of the teachers do not seem to care if their students learn. They also do not believe there is any importance in their (high school) students being able to write legibly. I heard more than one teacher say of penmanship the year prior to forcing the laptops "We're going to computers so that doesn't really matter." More times than not, I am forced to do the teachers job for them. I believe they've taken a very lazy approach to their teaching methods and I am not happy about it. I hear my son say more often than I care to hear, "I really didn't learn anything from 'this'." They don't seem to be the kind of school that will simply pass you on, but then, as I said, they don't seem to care if the students pass at all. The standards are set very low for the students. It seems like the administration is living in the delusion that their school is filled with kids who come from rich families. However, a great deal of the families in this area are low income. The only plus side is that my son has been able to make a few friends of which he is very fond of. I would transfer him to a different school if I could.
