    it appears to me that "respect" only goes one way. Teachers are a product of administration and there lies a problem. it has been our exp that the school is the bully. sad when we see so many good schools and I stuck my kids with this. respect is easy to spell but hard for "adults" to do. You get what you give. never to late to change unless you do not see the truth. truth is we can always get better if we are willing to pay the price. what I have seen is blinders on admin and why change when we are so good attitude. no accountability=who cares. policies need updated teachers need evaluations accountability is gone teachers and "teens" ..

    I have 2 children that are in the Gilmer County School System. I am extremely pleased with the education that they have received. They are both in honors and AP honor classes and are nationally recognized for their academic abilities. This is accredited to the great teaching staff and educational programs with have been made available to them throughout their schooling experience.

    Something is terribly wrong with the review of Gilmer County Schools. How can we be told our schools are great and our teachers are great when we only come up with a 4 out of 10 a 3 out of 10 in ratings. The Gilmer Middle School isn't listed in School Digger's rating lists. I don't feel as though our students are going to be prepared to go to the next level. I have 2 grandchildren in Gilmer Schools that hardly ever bring homework home. Night after night - no homework - English - Science - Math - Social Studies - why not - each teacher should have homework - not a happy grandparent.
