My experience at Ardmore High School was incredible!! I have nothing but love for that school! It along with my parents has shaped me into the young adult that I am! I think the thing I like most about Ardmore is the attention the teachers give you, if they see you struggling or if you just need help they are always there!! Something I hope gets better about Ardmore is, the extra curriculars! We have a lot of them but no one really even knows about half of them. For example I didn’t find out till this year that we had a chess club and apparently we have had it for about 5 years!! All around though Ardmore is a wonderful school.

As a four year Ardmore High school student Ardmore high school has treated me great. I've had help from teachers and couneselors when I ask for help. I've created new friends and met a lot of new people. Ardmore has offered me to be apart of programs such as upward bound, National honor society, health corps, and leaflets. I would like for the academics at Ardmore High School to be more challenging and for the teachers to engage more with the students.
Ardmore High School was a great school to me. It was definitely not the most diverse school or the best school, but it was the type of school that makes you want to come back. It was not because it serves the best food, has the most lenient rules, or because the work was easy. It was because the lunch ladies always told me to "Have a good day , sweetie," the faculty who always told me to "calm down" before I actually get in trouble, and the teachers who always tried their best to help me. The work themselves were not impossible, but gosh do the teachers know how to pile you up with work. However, I managed to turn all of my work in time because I knew that if my grades look weird, I could always ask the teachers what my mistakes were and improve further. Ardmore is just a very small, loving town. We have the best sport teams. Some of them might not win as much as the other, but we have the best sportsmanship.
