Archmere Academy Reviews

Archmere is not a school for the faint of heart. I like to describe it as the Ivy of the high school world. There are rigorous academics but wonderful teachers that are always more than willing and available to help. There are also so many things to get involved with here. I know that, if I had gone somewhere else, I wouldn't have had half of the opportunities I got at Archmere. I will say that the school spirit is definitely lacking and the school itself expects us to juggle a lot, which can push my peers and me to the breaking point. Although I feel like I've missed out on a typical high school experience, I know all of the hard work will benefit me in college, where I can make up for lost time.
Review Archmere Academy
I have had one of the most amazing high school experiences because of Archmere Academy. I feel completely prepared for college, and the students and teachers have created an incredible environment for individuals to thrive both academically and socially. As a student who struggled with school work and socially, I have thrived being at this academic institution. No other school in the area prepares a student for college like Archmere Academy does.
I believe that Archmere Academy not only prepares a student for college through its challenging academics, but also helps to build a student's character and personality. Archmere offers challenging academics, to strengthen students' minds, competitive athletics, to help practice team building, and creative arts programs, to allow students to express themselves freely. Archmere also contains the best teachers through their dedication to preparing students for college and teaching them to not only become brighter and more intelligent, but to also become a stronger person holistically.
