Amelia County High School is a nice school with understanding staff. I would like them to have more options in which students can choose from to pursue their career. They have options but not a lot! I wish it was more availability for the students to have one-on-one time with a career coach to help all us pursue our dreams.

I am in all honors classes, so my classmates are generally focused and committed to learning. While I've encountered a bad teacher now and then, I have been pleased with most of my classes and I feel as if I've learned something from each of them, but I'm not quite sure how prepared I am to be in college and away from pretty much everything familiar to me. Overall, it hasn't been too terrible an experience, but I'm glad to be graduating.
There were limited extracurriculars available and the school administrators did not possess or advocate for an inclusive environment. The school is unique in its ability to get away with oppressive statements towards racial and sexual minorities. I would not attend this school again, or recommend it to others, for the aforementioned reasons.
