Going into my high school year the teachers and administrators were very welcoming. My teachers taught me everything necessary to know for SOL's and life in general. "No child left behind" was always put into effect as many teachers went above and beyond to make sure everyone passed the class even those who needed the little extra push. Altavista had issues just like any school would with certain students acting up, but administration enforced rules that were fair to everybody. I can say without a doubt, anybody would be beyond blessed to call themselves a colonel.

Altavista is one of the best schools I've ever attended. It has a great faculty and administration that does a amazing job at keeping people on track and getting their work done. This is an caring environment that makes you feel like you're safe, and in great hands. Altavista has the best education system and make sure everyone gets there education done on time enough for them to graduate.
We have many different clubs offered at Altavista. We have Robotics, National Honor Society, National Junior Honor Society, Future Business Leaders of America, Spanish Club, and Latin Club. There are many people who are in National Honor Society and also National Junior Honor Society and those two groups are based on academics which is very impressive. Robotics is a club offered to many, but only few people join because it is very technology based. Future Business Leaders of America is offered to people who take a business class or have taken a business class. In FBLA, they take on multiple task and activities.Spanish Club and Latin Club are offered to those who take the language, in these clubs it gives people an opportunity to get more in depth with the language.Many sports are offered at Altavista, we have: football, volleyball, cross country, golf, cheerleading, basketball, soccer, track and field, baseball, and softball. Administration is willing to help in any way to make those clubs and sports successful. I happen to be apart of Future Business Leaders of America and National Honor Society. I was apart of National Junior Society in ninth and tenth grade. I also managed the volleyball and basketball team.
