The academics at Amity are very rigorous, and I've heard from those who have graduated from Amity and are already in college that they felt Amity prepared them well for the college workload. However, particularly in the higher-level classes, there can be a sense of competition among students to do better than each other. There is a warped perception of what failing is, as many students find a B unacceptable for them.
Additionally, although there are lots of extracurricular clubs at Amity, it can be difficult getting involved later on in your high school career. It is imperative that freshmen establish themselves right off the bat at Amity or else it can be difficult to seize opportunities later on.
Simply, Amity High School lacks resources to students when needed. Clubs and other student organizations are sometimes neglected, but the school focuses on sports without making changes that students want. Student Government almost has no use when it comes to representing the student voice since it is limited to the popular kids. Also, school guidance councilors are not cooropative when it comes to getting the classes that you want.
