Altus High School Reviews
I attended Altus high school as an international exchange student last year. It is my first time to study in the American high school. I still remembered that I was so nervous at the beginning of the first quarter because I didn't know anyone in that high school. So I was eating lunch by myself in the cafeteria of the school. However, Suddenly, a bunch of students came to my table and tried to talk to me, they were so nice and helped me to adapt my high school life. I was touched and fully thankful to them!
It's a modern high school stuck in behind teaching. Most teachers are old and don't care for teaching anymore. They're more involved with coaching football or another sport. There are a few wonderful teachers that do a great job but most just don't seem to care. They offer very little challenging classes. It's a school for average kids who don't care much for learning. They offer a variety of sports but football is where it's at if you want to be any good or recognized. Although academics seems average, they have great budgeting and use of grants. The whole district uses Ipad for students and Macbooks for the teachers. The High school has renovated the whole school with the exception of the cafeteria. It looks good.
Overall, attending AHS was really good for my college applications. It's incredibly easy to become involved, whether it be sports, clubs, or music. However, while it's good for college applications, it's not good for actually learning. For those of us that put in hard work, it's frustrating to see others surpass you in class ranking because the selectivity with which they select their schedules. Also, for many, hard work come second to grades. Considering diversity, on the surface everything seems fine, but the student body has problems with microagressions.
