I have grown up in the AFC area. I have been going to this school my entire life and am going to graduate this year. There are not that many school activities that students can participate in, in high school. Our school is based on our sports and other things such as music, arts, or FFA get left out. Our FFA is probably the club that most of our school is involved in being a rural community. Things that could be hanged include the things are school bases off of. Such as sports many things get looked over because of that. Majority of our school are athletes and also in FFA.

The small town environment is great! We have excellent teachers, who know all the students and form a bond with them.
I really can't say there's anything wrong with AFC. The teachers are all passionate about the subjects they teach and always try to give help when it's needed. For the most part, the only problem I have had during my time at AFC is that I've found most of the other students to be difficult to deal with. There is no shortage of obnoxious and offensive jokes to be heard in the halls. Aside from that, however, I really don't see why AFC would deserve a bad review.
