Anderson High School is a clustered yet very welcoming school. During my time here, I had a very lack luster of an experience in some areas. In terms of education, for the most part was average. You have some amazing teachers that care for you and are supprortive and want the best while some didn't care.
Anderson lacks diversity, even though we have a "diversity club." There seems to be a lack of culture within our community. But we care for each other and seem to have great camaraderie.
We have great sports but also have some grey areas. What makes our athletic department amazing is our A.D. he's outgoing and just an amazing human being.
Anderson's been under construction for quite some time, and during this period of chaos, our facility has been a mess. With wires hanging out the ceiling to excessive amounts of dust in the air as well as construction workers everywhere, this made me feel both unsafe and uncomfortable.
I love Anderson High School. The teachers are kind, caring people who want the best for every student. The amount of love the teachers show for the students is astonishing! The faculty will go out of their way everyday in order to ensure the learning, safety, and general wellbeing of the students. The Orange Heart program is unique and allows students to have private one on one conversations with their teachers about any topic. The link crew helps incoming freshman become aware of the events and opportunities that Anderson has. One thing I would change is the buildings structure. The school is old and with a few upgrades could enhance the learning even more!
