Alcoa High School Reviews
As a parent and a sub for the system, I have gotten a first hand look and the inner workings of the system. They are definitely top notch. The rooms have the latest technology, latest curriculum and knowledgable teaching staff. The sports are unbelievable. They community support and pride is evident! It's great to be an Alcoa Tornado
The teachers at AHS are for the most part amazing and will work well with the students with respect. We are a small school so there isn't much of a variety in classes. We have AP classes in English and Social Studies courses, but I think that the majority of students would benefit and prefer taking more AP science and math courses which we have none of. Administration is awesome and supports students and staff greatly.
There are some teachers that I really love at Alcoa, but there are some that really get on my nerves. Herr Brown, my Economics and German teacher, really tries to interact with the students and makes it fun. Plus he is very knowledgeable and is always available to talk to about anything. Mr. Daugherty, my Physics teacher, is extremely intelligent and continues to blow my mind with new things every day. However, there are teachers that shouldn't be teaching in my opinion. Coach Dunn teaches Theory of Knowledge, World History, and US History. He really baffled me the first time I entered his class. He allows kids to curse and we only have a maximum of 7 grades in a whole semester. The thing that really upsets me in his class is the fact that if anyone tries to argue against his opinion he immediately shoots it down. There are others like me in the class that don't agree with his teaching style and his opinions, but there other students who try and argue on the teacher's behalf and they say very outrageous things. Of course he will never say anything bad about them but as soon as I try and voice my opinion with reason and logic he shoots it down. Plus there is another teacher by the name Mrs. Gornto who's grading is very inconsistent. But overall the teachers at Alcoa High School are pretty good.
