Altamont High School Reviews
The education system and athletic system at Altamont High School have a lot of effort put into them.
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 teachers were very kind and approachable and helped when they saw I needed it.
I always brought my lunch because I was not a fan of the food.
The guidance counselor is the best around. As for other administration it is average.
I loved most of my teachers. They really knew the information they taught and were very friendly and caring.
Through the extracurriculars I was involved in I was able to host a 5K, play basketball and develop a passion for high jump.
Being from a small town allowed me to find out about more opportunities. I was able to be involved in multiple things, so I found what I liked and did not like.
Although our school offers quite a bit of electives, I feel like there are certain classes that we should have that don't. One, for example, being a business class.
The condition of the building is very good. Our school's technology is very advanced. Each student has his or her own chromebrook that they can use for their classes. This makes it very easy to do homework and research.
Our administration isn't the greatest. I feel like they put things out to do at last minute, but they are very friendly. Our guidance counselor is easy to get along with and talk to, but also isn't there a lot. I don't think our school is very strict on attendance, they will let people leave for basically no reason.
My overall experience at this school has been great. Our school has a very good education system, and a lot of activities to participate in outside of school.
Most of our teachers are very good at what they do. There are a few teachers that are not good teachers, in my opinion. All of our teachers are willing to help you if you ask them, and they all seem to truly care about their students.
I would like to see more options or a bigger salad bar. It gets old eating the same thing every week.
Our school has a great set of rules, all the students know how to behave well, and know the consequences if they dont. We first get a warning as verbal then after that, we either get detentions or suspended.
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!
I'm better learning by hands on. Some of our teachers prefer just to read straight out of a book or just take notes and thats harder for me to understand and actually focus. A few of our teachers are great at their work, letting us engage with projects or websites or even going on trips to give us the real world experience.
