FRL data from GaDOE for the current academic year - Lambert: 5% South: 9.7% West: 12.5% All three schools are solidly upper-middle class.

There is little difference in enrollment by race/ethnicity between South (68% white) and Lambert (72% white). The actual difference is due to the presence of more (110 total) hispanic students at South. West is 82% white though it's a safe bet that the white proportion of enrollment is going to decline there in the coming years. I have a child at South and redneck is not a word that I would use to describe the vibe there.

The new high school needed to be located somewhere in South's current attendance boundaries given current and near-term development patterns, racial gerrymandering accusations notwithstanding. South has the greatest immediate overcrowding issues. It's only March and the next year's freshman class is already the largest (846 students) in school history. Total enrollment next year will be 3k and it will be two more academic years before the new high school and the expansion at South will open. Lambert has overcrowding problems as well and it's going to be expanded too, but there isn't as much current or planned construction in Lambert's current attendance zone as in South's, or West's for that matter.

yes. the entire south forsyth area is very high income. there are only certain sections (south of the midway area, for example) where people live in poverty.

when you've got white students that hang a sign like this up for a senior prank, you've definitely got a redneck vibe:

No. You have an example of immature racially insensitive teenagers who, unfortunately, can be found everywhere. Redneck though not perceived as being as offensive as what the knuckleheads at South put on the banner, is a still a pejorative term itself.
