I like the honors and AP teachers, the art teacher, and the computer science electives. I wish there was more encouragement to continue foreign language past the first two levels, or at least offer levels 3 and 4 online. I wish there were more specific art classes, like painting, ceramics, sculpture, drawing, etc., instead of just "advanced art." I also wish the senior only classes were actually in the senior hall so locker access will be easier. I do think there need to be more clubs that are more fun.

Anchor Bay is a great school so far. Most of the teachers are very caring towards the students and very good at teaching and making sure everyone understands. There is also a great sports program with great coaches. And the academics here are good. The helping for getting ready for college isn’t there too much, I think as students we could use all the help we can get and it is not all offered at anchor bay. Otherwise it is a great school with great staff and students.
Anchor Bay High School for the past 3 years has been a place where I have learned, grown, and developed myself as a student. I have learned how to time manage as well as the definition of hard work. The teachers have been supportive and have prepared for my future in college. Though the Honors Academy has been a work load I feel as if it has prepared me for my college course. I have created new friendships and established connections for myself. Anchor Bay High School has been a very important part of my life. I would not change my experience here because it has established myself of who I am as character.
