Every day that I attend Alleghany High School is an experience, not only is it calm and peaceful, but also full of students who get along so well. With teachers that become like family, with no fear to talk to them when you need it. As of what I can say so far, it’s been amazingly great experience for a small town like ours. I love how all students get along well, problems are solved and we have a voice. I wish there was a slight change, a change of teachers, if only there could be more, it would help immensely. The teachers here are capable of a diverse of things, a little bit of help wouldn’t bother
Alleghany high schools community is small and close knit making it an excellent learning experience. Most of the teachers grew up here and came back to give back. They care about us as individuals not just a group of students.
Lots of people will get bullied and the teachers wouldnt even notice or would do nothing about it. There is also a lot of drama and rumors going around and no one tries to end it. Also with the nurse she is only here for two days, sometimes just one, and lots of times people need her and she wouldnt be here.
