Coming from another school, where the expectations of graduating were very low; this school has exceeded my expectations with the rigorous course work and college prep! The teachers are very well mannered and well spoken. The students are very respectable (with the exception of the select few that act out). The school overall is very clean and very up to date with all technology and teaching standards.

Archer High school provides students with a well-rounded general education and an all-around fun experience. Its teachers truly care about each student and want to see the succeed after high school. Particularly the college-readiness program is especially helpful to students during their college search, providing assistance in deciding where to go to college, scholarships on the national and local level and application tips. The athletic departments at Archer High School are unparalleled. Coaches really push athletes to be the best on the field as well as inside the classroom. The music, theater and art programs at the school are top notch and exemplify the creativeness of the students. Various clubs and activities available to students round out the emphasis placed on academics, athletics and creativity. While the administration is a bit lack luster, they really do try to provide student with an encouraging and challenging environment.
The time i spent at Archer High School has been some of the best times of my life. The teachers there are amazing, both in regards to academics and personality. AP teachers prepare you heavily for the exams almost always guaranteeing a passing scores. Archer offers many different clubs and activities in order to have a stimulating academic and social life. However, one thing i would like to see change is how much students have control over there student activities. Having a more active and involved student council system would help greatly with this.
