Altus High School Reviews
At Altus High School, I feel like we are a family and everyone always comes together as one. Our school offers so many great opportunities. All you have to do is always keep an open mind and the doors will be wide open. I love being an Altus High School bulldog , Once a bulldog always a bulldog!
TBH the educations not that great and there is lots fights, The teachers are probably the best part of school and even their not great.
I like the environment Altus High School has. We are definitely involved with the community and making everyone feel whole.
I love the school spirit here at Altus High School. It’s a fun and challenging learning environment. I love the history courses offered here at the high school too.
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.
I loved the sense of togetherness when it came to helping one another through a difficult situation or during a sporting event... the only thing that i would say that i would like to see changed is the clique situation that develops as the students progress through the years, everyone kind of separates and falls into cliques and if you don't fit in with them, you don't fit in anywhere.
I feel Altus High School is great at preparing a student for college. They offer many programs that allowed several of my classmates to finish their Associates Degree within 6 months of graduating High School. I feel the school need not focus on how much good the football team is and focus on providing programs that will help kids succeed in the future.
I had the best 4 years of my life at Altus High School. I never woke up dreading to go to school because it was such a great environment with amazing staff and teachers. The thing I loved the most about Altus High School is how well everyone got along. Everybody excepted everyone. Nobody was left out of anything.
Overall, AHS was a great place to grow up and discover myself. I entered my freshman year with no friends, no hobbies, and no clue who I was going to be. Now, four years later, I have had the opportunity to travel, perform, and grow with the guidance of amazing directors, teachers, and coaches. Altus High School, while struggling due to lack of funding, does its best to embrace every type of student and help them grow.
I am a military brat and I have attended Altus High School all four years. My experience has been amazing; everyone welcomed me with open arms the first day I came here. I have been able to be really close with my teachers who work hard to make sure all their students are ready for the next level.
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!
I had an amazing time. The faculty and staff are very friendly and helpful. I’d like to see more options for students who need help with school.
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.
I enjoy the different things they have to offer. I especially like how we were able to take both AP classes and concurrently enroll at the community college.
They could try to actually teach a child how to do a thesis before they tell her to make an essay. Especially if the thesis is the more points than the rest of the essay.
Altus high school is a wonderful school, with wonderful teachers, but I think they are way too focused on our test scores and not really what we learn or how we learn it.
Altus Public Schools helped shaped me into a wonderful, educated, and driven young woman. It is a place where students can reach their full potential.
