Anchor Bay High School Reviews
Throughout my high school experienced at Anchor Bay High School, I've had experiences that I will remember for a lifetime. This high school is very big in size, with about 2,000 students enrolled! Because of this, there is so much to do and get involved in. One of my personal favorite extracurricular activities I was involved in was Careers in Education. This course offers the opportunity for students to become a teacher cadet for their desired teacher within the Anchor Bay School district for the school year. I enjoyed this because it gave me a chance to revisit my two past schools, Anchor Bay Middle School South and Lottie M. Schmidt Elementary, and work for the two teachers who've I've really appreciated all these years. I was able to visit their classroom throughout the week and help the teacher and their students, which further helped me see the work of teachers and their dedication to doing what they do on a daily basis. I developed a great role of leadership and an unforgettable bond with the younger students from the two schools. if I had the chance, of course I would re-live my high school days over again. High school is definitely the four best years of your life.
Anchor Bay High School adequately prepares students for continuing education through college and does a nice job pushing students to move on with their education. With programs such as college night or their career fair, it is evident that the school tries its best to encourage students to take the right path.
I overall had a great experience. Really great teachers, good ways to get involved in sports, clubs, dances, pep assemblies, etc. The food isn't the greatest and seniors are no longer allowed to throw paper or decorate caps on the last day of school anymore, but overall the students enjoy a lot of freedom while still having a safe environment and not too many distractions from learning. The Honors Academy and Early College programs are really great for helping students get ahead of the game before going to college.
