Anderson High School Reviews
I’ve had a very wild experience at Anderson High School. There’s been a few years where there were many fights. You rarely see any bullying, which is a good thing. The athletics change every year because either the coaching or the athletes just aren’t as involved as they should be, as far as their skill level. The staff and administrators are extremely strict and the school spirit/culture is definitely there. We’ve wasted money on flat screen TVs for the hallway that nobody really looks at, and a $50,000 digital sign for the front of our school. We could’ve used that money for a new track outside, or even better cafeteria food. I sure wish we had chicken strips, fries, cups of cheese, and regular chips instead of all the wheat/healthy foods. People can choose to eat healthy or not. There may be days people might want to cheat on their diet, nobody wants to eat healthy all day everyday.
Anderson High School is a good school, a lot as changed since I graduated from there. When I graduated from Anderson high school the school was in transition in changing the name from Madison height pirates to Anderson high school. I feel like the transition took a toll on the faculty and the students and it took a while for things to adjust.
Anderson High School has some cool teachers and it is not a super huge school so it easy to learn your way around. We need better food though, the food is not that good. We have a decent amount of after school activities so it is not super difficult to find a club you might like. We also have a decent amount of dual credit classes and career course classes for people to take.
