Allen County-Scottsville (AC-S) High School Reviews
Allen County-Scottsville (AC-S) High School lives up to the small town hype, all of the students are pushed to join extracurricular activities and excel in their academics. Every students future is the priority of Allen County's faculty and staff who are focused on ensuring that every student is college and/or career ready.
During my time at ACSHS I received a wonderful education from teachers who challenged me at every turn. I took it upon myself to take rigorous courses and I had plenty of support, resources, and guidance open to me. Individuality and personal college choices are something I wish I could change. Instead of pushing dual credit hard let students enjoy their last years of high school and then after they graduate and move onto college, enjoy those years of their undergraduate. Another item I wish the school created in my time there is green study spaces, utilizing the courtyard inside the school and the spaces outside of the school. Painting the white walls would also be a nice change and make the hallways much more inviting and a happier place to be. I take pride in my school but upon entering my senior year I see many improvements that could be made for the next classes to have an even better experience then my own.
I liked ACSHS because you got to know the teachers and principals and if you needed something they tried to be their best to be there for you.
A lot of high school students are quick to assume their high school "sucks" because of a few problems. Allen County-Scottsville High School is not a school worthy of the word "sucks". The faculty and staff focus almost entirely on the students and not only preparing them for the future, but for what they can expect throughout the four years of high school. The school is clean and very well-maintained, which is, unfortunately, not a normality for all schools. In my four years there, I felt welcome and cared for at all times. There is always someone to help you.
Allen County-Scottsville High School is a very good school in terms of pleasant people and a dedicated team of employees working toward a common goal. The staff are very effective in helping students in any way they can, and the constant work ethic they display is nonetheless remarkable. The down-side of this school is the lack of extracurricular activities and sport team variety. If I were to wish a change upon Allen County-Scottsville High School, those are the only two notable things I would recommend seeking change in.
All of the teachers and counselors do their best to make sure you succeed in their classes and help you do your best in whichever field you want to pursue in the future.
I loved that the class sizes weren't very larger, and teachers took the time to get to know their students.
I liked the closeness of going to a small school. Everyone knew each other and tried to help each other. I also liked how most teachers would sit down and help students if they asked or it. I did not like the class schedule, I would change it if i could.
This highschool had a decent atmosphere, a community. Which made us look out for each other and build school spirit. But also a few other students and myself, feel like we were never challenged and that we were wasting our time there, feeling like we didn't learn a lot of valuable skills.
My experience at Allen County-Scottsville High was and still is bitter-sweet. There are a lot of bad things about this school but for everything that's bad there's also good. The teachers are mostly great teachers, there are a few that just hate their jobs but there are a lot more that wake up every morning ready to help us better ourselves and our futures. Our curriculum may be mediocre but overall we're a pretty intelligent group of "kids". If I could change one thing about it here, I would change the close-mindedness of everyone in this county, there are not near enough people that don't have their heads set on a certain way or thing and I feel like being open-minded is a great start to being successful. Although my opinion of this school varies greatly from time to time I still feel like I can honestly say I wouldn't want to have to endure high-school any where else.
The teachers are amazing and really try to help their students. I believe they could have more chooses in sports like soccer.
I have met and had many good teachers at this school, and you can tell they truly care about you. Although, the acedemics and content that teachers use need to be worked on more. The timing when we take the Cert test is not thought out too well also, I myself made a bad score just because the teachers had no time to teach me what I needed to know.
This school is overall below average. There are a few standout teachers, specifically within the science and history departments, but aside from that, the school puts more into sports than academia.
I've gone to Allen County Schools since I started school. Overall my experience has been very well but as I have gone through high school I do not like the fact that our test scores base us on everything. If we are not benchmark on our ACT subjects then we are pulled from all of our senior activities. This makes being a senior not fun. Especially for a border line student like me who may be only 1-3 points from my benchmark level. I would like to see my school base their academics on our education instead of just test scores.
While this school does have a few outstanding teachers and students, it's mostly a sea of mediocrity at best.
There are not distinct social groups. Yes, some people hang out with each other over others, but the more popular kids still talk to and have friends in the less popular groups. The teachers do anything they can to help their students succeed.
I wouldn't choose this school again because of the lack of student acceptance of diversity.
