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.

I love my school and I feel as if it is definitely due to the school staff and administration. For one, our principal ensures we remain safe. Within the last year, schools across Gwinnett County were supposedly threatened by gun violence and immediately, our principal responded by installing a new security system; however, outside of all seriousness, the administration/staff ensures we enjoy our time at school. They host and plan ways students can all come together as one and demonstrate school spirit. They’ve created such a positive environment for each of us. I wouldn’t want to attend school anywhere else.
Archer is a great school with a wide selection of AP classes, electives, and student led clubs and organizations. The staff there is very friendly, and I became good friends with many of my teachers. Archer has a wonderful sports program placing the most emphasis and funding on football, basketball, and wrestling, but Archer also has sports programs for most well-known sports including but not limited to soccer, golf, softball, volleyball, etc. Archer is also a very safe school with at least 2 school resource officers on duty during the school day. However, while the school is very safe from outside threats, there are often several fights that occur every year, and Archer has recently been in the news for videos of student fights surfacing on social media. However, these fights are often ended quickly by staff, and the students involved are strictly disciplined. Due to Archer's great AP program and myriad of clubs, I would recommend anyone to Archer High.
