Anacortes High School Reviews

I started attending my sophomore year after moving from the south. My previous school had over 3,000 students enrolled, while Anacortes High School has less than 1,000. As a new student it can be hard to start getting involved as every one knows everyone. It can seem small sometimes as the town is small, but there are many benefits. The teachers and faculty know your name, and you will always recognize someone anywhere you go. All staff care about you as a student and as a person. Most people are involved in a variety of activities; most students enjoy both a sport and club. Our TigerHawk basketball game is looked forward to every year as well as homecoming week and spring activities. The community as a whole supports Anacortes High School students. Of course every school has its cons, and there are going to people you like or respect more than others, but my overall experience has been a positive one.

THe teachers are AMAZING however the students arent always great. The acedemics are very good however! The history curriculum could definately be updated but they are working on that now!
Anacortes is a great high school with teachers who are helpful and activities that you can get involved in. However, Anacortes needs to focus on listening to the student's voices and make some changes with leadership. Having been in an officer position for the high school. I have the first-hand witness of students' ideas not being listened to and just keeping tradtion from year to year. Other than that I feel like Anacortes is a great town that allows the high school to provide all the students with opportunities.
