Ames High School Reviews
Review Ames High School
Ames high school is a great high school to attend if you plan on going to college. The teachers and faculty care for their students and prepare the students for college. The teachers always put student success first and give all students the opportunity to be successful. At Ames high school, all the students are also very close. There is also a lot of diversity. The teachers teach in a way that all students can learn. If a student does not understand something, Ames high school provides an after school tutoring for extra help. Overall, Ames high school has a great learning environment and is a great school.
Ames High school is one of the great school. Being a Muslim and immigrant, I was scared to go to school at the time when Donald Trump became president; but Ames High School posted a post on Ames Community School that, "It doesn't matter what your religion, race or nationality is. We are glad that you are here at Ames High school. They also post the same thing all over the Ames High halls; which encourage me not to be scared. I am an ESL student and sometimes it's hard for me to catch the work that we do in our class like my other class mates. Whenever I ask help from my teacher, they always help me. If I still didn't get any problem they find an easy way to help me. Ames High School is not a good school, it's an excellent school.
Besides the usual high school social issues, Ames High has a really good environment. There's always lots of activities going on outside of the school day and students get very involved in those things. Parents help sponsor and they also attend events like our athletic events. If I could change something I would change how our principal is so deeply involved with out football team and not other events. Our principal likes to stress athletics, especially football, but not other activities throughout the school. The music and art departments are doing really great things and in return they get almost no recognition.
