Appomattox County High School Reviews
Appomattox County High school was one of the worst things that could've ever happened to me. I went from being an honor roll student that hadn't missed any school days since KINDERGARTEN! When I entered this school environment, I immediately noticed the atmosphere of favoritism. Teachers and administrative staff members only cared to help or understand the student that were well known or "popular". I wish I could've had a better high school experience but Appomattox County High school's main focus was on the football team and keeping their winning streak going. That school is a place for only athletes to succeed and prosper, Not the average student.
Appomattox County High School follows strict educational standards! The school has AP programs as well as participated with Governors School, STEM academy and the community college! This participation allows students to learn in environments most suitable for that student! The school was great in working with the student and parents in making the decision of which route to pursue. I also appreciate the support given to the student athletes! I went to this school as a child and was prepared for college many years ago, the school has only gotten better since then! I know from my sons experience with Appomattox High School, he is ready for the next step!
I am going to miss the teachers at ACHS. They have done a lot for me and without their support, I wouldn't be where I am today. I really liked what I learned and honestly, I'm sad to leave. There are a couple of things I'd change, but other than that, the school is awesome. I hope the rising middle school students will have a positive time like I did. I'm excited to continue my journey, but, I'm sure to make a return visit to the place that built my love for school.
