Ansonia High School Reviews
The teachers here are amazing, but the resources lack. The SAT prep class is designed for students who need help reaching a 1000 - 1100, but do not help students score a 1350+. Our labs are okay, but many of the tools used are old or broken. The food is nothing to be crazy about, it makes you full and that is it. Our football team is great, as well as the support around our sports team. What should change is the support for academic excellence. The sports teams get all kinds of benefits, such as assemblies for them and celebrations year round, while academic excellence gets a pat on the back and never mentioned again. This is a big flaw in the mindset of Ansonia High School.
Ansonia High School, located in a small town in Connecticut named Ansonia, has many opportunities to offer students. Ansonia High does a great job of encouraging a successful transition by having a "Freshmen Academy". This two week program gives the newbies a chance to tour the school and start their academics without any distractions. In the beginning of sophomore year, students are able to take Advanced Placement (AP) classes. This is a great way to prepare students for college-level courses they will experience in the future. In addition to the great courses offered here, the spirit of the student body is very strong. A staple of the town of Ansonia is their football team, which currently own twenty championships. Overall, Ansonia High School lacks in the area of diverse activities offered to students, however their academic load and college readiness succeeds tremendously.
In 2012, I moved from Lowell Massachusetts to Ansonia Connecticut. My freshmen year I made friends very quickly. I talked to people and soon got invited to a football game; something Ansonia is known for. The pride this town has is truly one of a kind. Not only in football but just the town itself. However, one of my favorite experiences was back in freshmen year. It was a freshmen baseball game and I thought I'd support the boys in my class. it was the last inning and we were down by 12, my friends left and I was with the parents because I wanted to stay for the whole game. We ended up winning and I celebrated with the parents and the boys! The parents are extremely involved, between planning events, raising money, and supporting the students at their sports and academic events. If I could do it all over, I would. I have had some of the best experiences and memories at this school and in this town. I have also made true relationships that I am so thankful for.
