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.
The teachers who teach honors classes were pretty good, but everyone else was mediocre at best. It was okay for me only because I had mostly honors classes and so the material taught was much better even though it was still very easy to me. They only showed respect to the honors students anyways, but the regular students were respected much less. The rest of the teachers really didn't help much outside of class.
