Most of the staff is very friendly, yet how the way their jobs are handled is absolutely horrendous. When giving packets on time for graduation, they gave them late so many information for scholarships and grants did not apply to the students anymore because they were past deadline. When it came to another student that was stalking another student, nothing was done about it and the student continued. Another student had issues with their ACT, because the school has their grade incorrectly printed. Many of the counselors do not have the information that we need for college. Also, many do not have degrees in order to properly help the students.

With being an adult education, there students that are over the age of twenty years old that are trying for their High School Diploma. All organizations, however, only take students that are twenty years of age and younger. This is unfair considering the other students (twenty one years and above) have to play in order to receive their diploma, yet we are offered no organizations that we can join. However, we do have a chess club and running club which is nice. We do not have any organizations that are that of a traditional school (track club, football team, soccer team). The teachers are very involved with helping.
The teachers try to teach us as much as they can in the time given. You can tell that many of them would like to teach us more than what they are restricted to. They break learning down and will you help you when needed. The thing that is amazing about teachers at Asher is that they also give you "real world" help, translating the work that we learn into how we can use it in our daily life. When I went to a traditional high school, I never received an education like I have here. My math, for example, has jumped over four grades with only one semester at the school. I am proud of the teachers that are there, and they will push you to do your best. They listen, and they will help you learn. Many of them also allow you to express yourself in the best way possible. Sadly, we do not have any AP/Honour classes at Asher, which many teachers want. The workload is evenly spaced out. What is nice about the Academics is that we have two hour classes twice a week, which prepares you for college and it makes it easier to get your work done. The only reason why I do not given the Grade an A is for the fact of how restricted the teachers are on teaching, the lack of AP/Honour classes and some school books are outdated due to the lack of funding (IE: We have math books from the late 80's for some classes).
