I guess you could say I have the average/classic experience. I've had some good and some bad, but doesn't everyone? There are teachers that are great and some not so much, I think everyone can agree on that. I had a teacher who made me feel like I belonged and supported me, yet I had another who made me feel so small, dumb and exculded which I one-hundred percent believe that ALL teachers should be like the first one. There will be classes that will be hard thats to be expected, but you should have teachers there to help you make sense of things and make you have a good high school experience. This school should work on the way teacher can make there students feel. Bullying is a issue in every school even this one, but that shouldn't be the case. Students need to be aware of the effects that bullying has on a person. All in all the school is good There is just a few things they should work on.

My experience at Adair County High School has been great, It has gave me a chance at meeting new people and all some teachers. It has also opened my eyes as to what career I would like to go into, because of their programs that they offer. There is not much of anything that I would like to see change at Adair County High School, except having better food. Over all ACHS has been great to me and opened very many doors.
Adair County High School is a great school to go to. My experience at Adair County High School has been a great experience, during my high school years, Adair High has helped me choose what i want to do when i get out of college, and also what i want to major in, in college. Adair County High School offers many things, such as clubs and organizations. They have also started offering many Vocational training classes, which i really enjoy, because if it wasnt for the vocational Training classes i probably would not know what i was going to major in, in college or what job i want to pursue in after college.
