I am currently a senior at Akron High School and from all the years that I have attended this school, I am very pleased with my experience. Akron is a small town and with a little over one hundred high school students. I believe this makes the whole experience seem more connected. I have never had a teacher that I did not like and there are a number of activities that students can get involved with. I also feel that thanks to my personal finance class and top-notch advice from our counselor, I am better prepared for college. My big problem with Akron is the bizarre decisions made by the administration. An example is that the school has shifted over to a four-day school week without school on Friday. The issue is that we have to attend school on Friday if we miss that Monday for a teacher in-service. I have heard many of people complaining about this and similar issues. Beside these hiccups, am grateful to attend this school and the experiences it has given me.

Akron High School is a fairly decent school, with the building being built just a short number of years ago. The teachers are fantastic, really being able to understand their students and do what they believe to be best for them - which isn't always a popular choice with some students, but what can you do?

There is a strong emphasis on sports at AHS. As of this year, there has even been the introduction of golf. For the majority of students, the focus on sports is a large pro. There are additionally other available activities and interests, such as art, music, and drama. While these may not receive nearly as much attention as sports, they are not necessarily neglected.
I was involved in clubs, organizations and sports at my school. Overall my experiences were all positive. My favorite experiences involved sports. It was great to have parents and community members supporting us at home and away games. I also like that I attended the same school as my mom!
