School was okay to attend. I wasn't properly prepared for college. Teachers were there for the money, more than to teach a decent lesson. I lacked the skills and materials needed to graduate. My counselor that was there didn't actually put me on the right core to graduate high. Senior year. I was informed i might not graduate with my class. I was still considered a Sophomore with 15 credits. Was given 14 Online classes for credit recovery. Managed to finish 12 and the other two I completed 75% of it just to graduate. Talk about a stressful year.

I love amite high school. I love all my teachers and they support me. They teach you so much, i am going to tenth grade this year. Leaving the school with all A’s. I even love the staff all the people in the office, janitors, everyone!
I enjoyed my years at Amite High was the best experience of my life. My parents are also graduates at Amite High. If I had to do it all over again I’ll still chose Amite High. The faculty and administration personnel are awesome. I also was on the football team and basketball team for 4 years I also did baseball my freshman year. The Coaches was so supportive and I loved playing for them. The care that they showed is no more than amazing. The teachers were there to educate us and they did just that but it’s up the the students to learn what they were educating us in the classroom. I learned a lot at Amite High School. They prepared me for the next level that I will be experiencing in life. So I want to thank the staff at Amite High for being the best in my book.
