Students have many oportunities with athletics and extracurricular activities. Amherst has cheerleaders that have represented our school in the Disney world parade, one of which I am. We have had students compete in national contest, like FBLA and FFA.

My experience has been great. I've been going to Amherst since I was in second grade and it's been great. Something that could change is they could try to get more speakers here to talk about bullying and or depression.
Amherst is a very small and safe school, so we do not need to have police there frequently. However, the doors are locked for the safety of the students, and students are rarely left unattended.
