Anderson County High School Reviews

Personally, I'd say that Anderson County High School is the same as any other high school. I do have a school to compare it to as I went to Woodford County my first two years of high school. I do like the teachers at Anderson and I really do feel like they want students to suceed, which is always a very good quality in any school. However, while I feel like the teachers do care for the students; academically, I feel as though administration can grow and help better their school to help students. Moving from Woodford to Anderson I could see a big change academically and the administrations role in helping further the students education. This is something I feel like the school should grow in. However, this doesn't make it a bad school. They have strengths in other things-like all schools do. Anderson excells in sports and has a great selection of clubs as well as a diversity of classes to help students determine their future career goal-I have found these very helpful.

Anderson County High School is filled with amazing teachers as well as students. I have had an amazing time participating in many clubs along with multiple sports. Overall I have had no problems with anyone. I have passed all my classes with flying colors. If I am struggling in a particular subject area teachers will willingly go out of their way in order to help me. I have never been made to do anything I was uncomfortable with. Our school events are fun no matter what they entail. Our staff is very well trained and suited for whatever the task may be. I feel completely prepared to step into the real world. I have made so many amazing memories I will never forget. Most importantly, I have been molded to have the personality it takes to go far beyond my comfort zone and still succeed.
Anderson County High School is, I assume, like most high schools. The teachers are usually kind and there is a nice variety of elective courses. There are many wonderfully smart and talented people; however there are quite a few annoying rednecks. They have some truly wonderful teachers that are kind and helpful and like to get to know their students, The school system also offers co-op for students who are working and many classes that help with students who are up for a challenge, such as their AP and BCTC classes.
