Amesbury High School Reviews
Amesbury High School, although may lack in some things due to budgeting. There is a sense of pride, no matter the sports team, the game, or the opponent, there is a sense of student involvement, and pride. No matter the event, there is always a group of kids who are willing to participate and make new friends within their class. The teachers are very good at their jobs, they ensure that students reach their full potential and always give good ideas and inspiration on the passions that each student holds.
Attending Amesbury High School for the past four years has been a blessing. I have gotten an education that is equal to that of a private school and real word experience that is better than that of a private school. The unique sense of community that a small high school provides is gratifying and allows students to grow in their environment. The teachers at Amesbury are truly dedicated to implementing an education that goes beyond the classroom and allows students to make real word connections. Outside of the classroom, sports and clubs offer students a second home in sense, and nurture further learning in areas beside the fundamental studies. The only critical aspect of the school is the need for greater diversity. This, however, is not the school's fault, but a reflection of town demographics. The mascot as an "Indian" has raised recent student and faculty attention, reflecting the social and political understanding the students share.
There is an abundance of opportunities at our school. It's incredible! You can join clubs from video productions to Model UN. And at this school, everyone is welcoming and kind. You will easily fit in at this school.
