Algonac community schools have one of the closest communities I have seen. I always feel at home when I go to school, and have felt that way for the passed four years. My school offers so many opportunities and lets the students put together what they please to feel comfortable and voice their opinions. The building has many problems, but the outstanding sports programs, college readiness steps, and teachers make up for it greatly.

I enjoyed how close everyone was. If anyone needed something the community would come together and help people who were at low points. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. It is like having a big family. The teachers do care about you and are always there to help. I liked the IB program because it has really helped me succeed in college.
I was very blessed to have attended a school that had such dedicated teachers and staff. Algonac High School offers International Baccalaureate (IB) classes and as someone that has taken five of those type of classes in my junior and senior year, I was very prepared for my college classes in terms of thinking critically and writing essays. I managed to get an A- average in my Biology class because of the two year IB Biology classes I took. The school had about 600 students total, so the smaller classes sizes allowed the teachers to have more one on one time with students. The teachers really care for the students and worked very hard to help them succeed. Many students are involved in the community and their school and help organize events. My graduating class even helped host several blood drives and charity events.

Overall, Algonac High School prepared me well for college with rigorous classes, and caring teachers.
