Archmere Academy Reviews
Archmere Academy has had such a large impact on my life. Never before have I met teachers so dedicated to the success of their students and genuinely concerned with the well-being of each individual. The community aspect of the school is easily their most defining as it provides an unparalleled emotional and beyond academics support system. Archmere teaches students to live with compassion and integrity, stressing community service and concern for others at all times. Additionally, the faculty itself is phenomenal. AP teachers, such as Mr. Klinge, are renowned in their fields and provide challenging and stimulating classes for students. Students are provided with opportunities to travel to France, Spain, Belize, and many other places around the world to experience new cultures and further their academic pursuits. This school leaves students with a holistic educational experience that will continue to shape their lives beyond granduation.
The designated curriculum Archmere has created will not only help me be prepared for college, but succeed in college as well. Most teachers at Archmere are oblivious to the amount of work we put in and like to think that their class is the only class in the world, so they assign ridiculous amounts of homework. The social situation at Archmere is very well contained and Archmere, in my eyes, is considered the model for an "ideal high school". Since the school is so small, word travels fast and it's hard to avoid people you don't like. Also, the school spirit is really lacking compared to other schools and the administration does not realize that. Lastly, since the curriculum Archmere bestows on us is so rigorous, it makes the students very invested in their grades (and other people's, too). In AP classes, it's hard to escape the ridicule of others for performing poorly on a test, which is pretty lame. I wish Archmere did a better job of making sure test grades were kept private.
When attending Archmere Academy, I enjoyed all the people I was surrounded by and the stellar education I received along the way. Thanks to the school, I have developed a better work ethic which will much better prepare me for college!
