I loved Amite High because of the people, but it did not prepare me for college at all. Nearly every department is lacking, especially academics. There is also a limited number of sports options for females. It was either basketball or track. We did not have a volleyball team, softball team or soccer team. About 3 or 4 of all the teachers I had while I was there actually cared about teaching.

By attending this school, I've learned many things. Beginning my freshman year, I made the cheer team and I've remained on there until my senior year, which is currently. Also, I've taken all honors classes since I've been there. Being a 4.0 student & a cheerleader at Amite High School is fun. If I could do it all over again, I probably would choose this school again because it's what I'm familiar with. Nothing or no one is perfect, but overall it's a great school.
Its cool, but the classes are limited, like there's not alot of electives. Plus, we don't have any clubs, not even Beta .
