Appalachian High School Reviews

Appalachian is a very small 1A rural school, it is wonderful in the fact that everyone knows everyone and there families, teachers treat the students just like their own children. However I do feel like we sometimes lack the readiness of college sometimes it is doing a wonderful new program of college preparedness. My mom also went to the school as well as her brother. My grandmother taught here until her retirement and my grandfather was a principal. It is all combined kindergaten through 12th grade. All students can participate together in some events and somethings for specific classes. It has given me a well education and I am looking forward to graduating in May and pursing a degree in pharmacy. Appalachain has been good to me and I would recommended it to anyone.

The campus and overall atmosphere of the surrounding town of Boone is an inclusive environment with lots of opportunities. While the weather can change drastically at times, the average cooler temperatures and possible snow are welcome sights. The difficulty of classes and the work load will depend on the student, the classes they are in, and what the intended major of the student is. Most of the course work is manageable though as there is plenty of time to interact with other students and staff both on and off campus.
My experience in Appalachian High School is good because the teachers push you to do the best to have a better future. What I like about Appalachian is that since we are a small school we get to be closer with each other. What I wish to change is have a better team for sports, I know this depends on the team but I'v always wanted to have a winning team.
