Altoona High School may be a pretty small school, but beware of how well it does its job.
The staff members are fantastic! The lunch ladies are fun to talk to, the custodian staff are pretty neat if you get to know them and the teachers? They're amazing. They're not just teachers; they're your friends. They're always there whenever you need extra help with schoolwork and they're even willing to spare extra minutes, even hours, out of their life to listen to you and help you get through whatever it is that's bothering you.
The overall atmosphere in Altoona High School is pretty great!

I liked that Altoona High School's educations genuinely care about their students, and yet they do not 'baby' them. They are more than willing to help, but a student needs to reach out to them first. Through this, teachers encourage integrity and hard work from their students. I wish that Altoona offered more specialized classes, especially where the arts are concerned. They also do not have a home economics class-a class that I believe my generation desperately needs.
Overall, Altoona is a great school. I have enjoyed going here for the previous four years. My teachers have prepared me for college, and I feel ready to go out into the 'real' world. I was very happy they offered AP courses, too, so hopefully those will set me apart in college in terms of credits. I should be able to register before my classmates.
