The academics at Amherst Regional High School are rigorous yet the teachers care for their students so that they will be successful. Amherst Regional High School attracts a very diverse and accepting community where all our welcome. For example, I have always felt comfortable talking to my teachers about sensitive topics. Teachers are after school all the time to make sure students are successful and they are very supportive when academics become difficult for kids. I've had an amazing experience.
Amherst was such a great place to go to school. I felt as though the teachers I was working with really cared about me and the work I was doing. They would urge me to struggle with hard concepts in order to eventually learn them, rather than give up or stay complacent. They understood that my school life was not my whole life and tried to understand me as a whole person. My teachers knew me and would congratulate me on things related to swimming, theater, art, music, and plenty of other activities that had nothing to do with my the academic aspects of high school.
