I am a parent of 2 kids moveing to your area. The oldest is a 13 yr old girl who plays softball at the national level. Her travil team is ranked 11 in ASA Nationally . Her school team came in 2nd in GA. She is a pitcher . The other is a 11yr old boy. He is the # 3 ranked tail back in GA. has won 2 wrestling state titles, and catches for a travil baseball team . From what research I have done I love your little school , my concerns are how well do the kids their welcome new kids moveing in it being so small and how well my to will adjust coming from an AAAA to an A school. Will someone from the administration please e mail me and give. Me some feedback on. Their thoughts on the issue. Thank you.
