Altamont High School Reviews
This school has allowed me to be very involved in numerous activities. In a small community like Altamont, our high school thrives on building relationships among peers and teachers alike. I have had some of the best teachers in the world from this institution.
My school takes sports extremely serious, especially basketball. All the students have pride and spirit for our teams and love to make sure they know they are supported!
The academics offered at this school are pretty good. I like most of the teachers that teach in this school. My math teacher is the perfect teacher for her job, and I think she fits perfectly for dual credit classes she teaches. Also my chemistry teacher is very devoted to his career and will stay after school with you for a student to understand a concept. My english teachers have all been wonderful and they are very helpful, and nice!
