Anacortes High School Reviews
Anacortes High School is a small school in a small town. The teachers and classes are all fun and there are quite a few advanced classes as well as a few classes geared to help slower students. The students are not very diverse- pretty much everyone is white, and there are a lot of rich kids. However, the school doesn't have that many cliques, in fact pretty much everyone is involved in multiple activities and friend groups. For the most part it is actually a very liberal mentality and everyone is pretty nice and accepting. Good special needs program and club scene.
AHS has excellent clubs and activities that captivate the student body and fill students with passion and drive to go forward. The teachers and faculty are so supportive and willing to help. I do wish more AP courses were offered and taught a little better in some circumstances. Our school culture is at times nice, but at other times awful. Drinking/drug use is unfortunately pretty common.
Anacortes High School was an environment that both served my passions and fueled my education. The community of staff and faculty are outstanding, supportive, and a distinguishing part of what makes this high school so great. There is a clear passion for learning in and outside of the classroom, and a plethora of opportunities available for students to pursue their interests. A number of different classes are offered that appeal to a variety of topics and subjects. Students are given the encouragement and education needed in order to achieve their academic and personal goals. Anacortes High School is a place of potential, progression, possibility. It was the perfect setting to discover my interests and establish a foundation for my future endeavors.
