Newton County Theme School at Ficquett Ratings & Reviews

August 17, 2017 Submitted by a parent
We've been at this school for several years and we hate it more every year. But when the school district is #92 of school districts in the state, you don't have many other good choices. This school is run as a dictatorship. Parents are treated like they're students. We have zero opportunities for input in anything other than the PTO. There's absolutely no attempt to engage with parents in a meaningful way so that we can work together to create a school a more positive school environment and relationship. Other than support staff, there's virtually zero diversity among the school administration and faculty. If you think it's important that your kids see adults that look like them and understand their culture and history in the classroom, you'll be sorely disappointed at the Theme School. The principal is on her second year at the school and I've come to believe that she's there to thin the herd, so to speak. The policies that she's chosen to make stricter are policies that studies show negatively impact the learning outcomes of primarily working-class and minority students. She's nowhere near as concerned about ensuring the academic needs of students are being met as she is about ensuring 100% compliance of rules that have very little impact on student learning. The attitude here is that if your child is not doing well academically, it's the child's fault. The problem is never internal. Always external. This is the way the school district operates as a whole so it's not really a surprise the Theme School follows suit. Except the Theme School has the ability to dismiss your child for poor performance. So, why should they care if a child is failing?If you contact the principal about an issue, she'll call you back saying she needs to follow up with her staff and then you only ever hear from the staff. She doesn't take personal ownership when issues are presented to her. And then, will have the nerve to send home a letter that says issues shouldn't go beyond the school.As you can see from all the reviewers that attack people who leave negative reviews, there is enormous pressure in this cliquish Theme School environment to comply and conform. If you decide to send your kids to this school, get used to stifling your voice and opinions. There are far too many people actively working to maintain the status quo and the power structure at this school.

We have attended NCTS for two years and love it. My child has been lucky with two great teachers who really appreciate her and push her to be the best student she can be. I am so involved in her learning and always able to come into her class, whether it's reading or helping out with a project. Being able to watch her grow in such a great environment is a great feeling as a parent!

My kids love this school and so do I. We are just a big family there. The educational level is beyond my expectations. I love being involved in their education as well and I feel welcomed every time.

Both of my children have attened the Theme School and have done well and enjoyed it. The teachers are some of the best and it is a place where parents and teachers care about a quality learning environment. We love that it was K-8th and expect it to only get better each year!
