I have a very good experience with Akron High School. Our former Principal, Mr.Lu, who retired last year was very caring towards everyone and was considered a "Father to all". Our current Principal, Mr. Ricci, is doing a great job of getting involved and getting to know all of the students and teachers. All of the teachers are very nice and caring. When they see students struggling, they will try to help that student in anyway possible to help them to succeed.

Spectacular teachers. Would like to see a greater investment into the English program over the science and math. Although both subjects have helped me and others in areas such as critical thinking, problem solving, etc., the English teacher(s) has instilled characteristics in students that will definitely result in responsible, wise, creative, and respectful people graduating every year.
Akron School District is behind in so many areas of athletics and academics. They are 10 years behind in helping children with disabilities and move more towards not helping them or any student of it is going to cost the district money. The teachers only teach to contract meaning they do not go above and beyond their basic contractual obligations. The students are the last to benefit from any advancement in education, growth and development. There is an attitude of this is the way it is and the way it has always been so they do not change or grow with the times as a whole. More families are tuning to home schooling or private schooling in this district.
