Anderson High School Reviews

Some of the teachers at Anderson give teaching it there all! They always try to give a hundred and ten percent to try to make class more enjoyable while giving us usually advice; however, for the most part teachers barely care. They will do what is required of them and teach to the "test" so to speak, which is the STAAR test in the state of Texas. Textbook work and lectures are a regular occurrence at school, but teachers have to understand that not all students learn the same. Perhaps if they varied activities now and then, all students could be engaged. Anderson staff are almost all very knowledgeable in their field and are willing to provide extra help for those who are struggling to understand.

Through my experiences at Anderson High School I have developed into a competitive student athlete and a capable young adult. The classes I took, both standard and accelerated, taught me crucial skills in time management and focus. The teachers at Anderson are skilled and influence a positive and energetic learning environment, which makes experiencing new subjects and topics far more enriching. LC Anderson High School prepared me culturally, socially, and academically to succeed in college and throughout the rest of my life.
What I liked about Anderson High School are the many opportunities given and how involved and dedicated the teachers are to not only teaching the curriculum, but also to knowing the students and learning how to teach them in the best way possible. What I would like to see change is the AMOUNT of curriculum because it's quite demanding, the amount of time we spend sitting in a class room since most students don't get home until about 5 pm, and I'd like to see the school be more honest with it's students and staff about real life situations rather than sugar coating the truth like they have done this year.
