I enjoyed my time as a student attending this high school, but I can't say it was perfect. There were times when I wondered why I had to go to a school that had such little culture. The diversity is there, however it is very divided as a student body. That is something the students do, but the climate also has a lot to do with what the teachers say about it. As for academics, it depended on what class I was in to determine the resources I was given. The math resources have not been the most available to me as a student whereas english has always been a strongly resourceful environment.
Review Anoka High School
Our school is full of school spirit! Most people attend games of all sorts and we are pretty creative when it comes to doing something to leave our mark. At one of the football games in the fall we all brought baby powder and streamers and wore white and then at one of stoppages we all threw the baby powder in the air and started chanting for our team! It even made it into a local newspaper from an alumni!

For fitness opportunities our school has a lot to offer within the school day as well as after. You can take endless amounts of gym classes that all contain different material such as team sports, aerobics, individual sports, power volleyball and much more. After school and in the summer you have the opportunity to use the weight room and you can also join what is called tornado force. Its a program that allows athletes to work with someone who knows what strengths each sport needs to work on. Therefore you are not just mindlessly working out but working towards benefitting your game.
The faculty often boast a sense of familial ties between every member of staff, and the students as well. When they say "Anoka Family", they aren't joking. I couldn't have asked for a better High School experience; the teachers are more than eager to engage students, and I feel I've made important ties, and friends, at that school. An enriching, memorable school experience.
