Atascadero high school is great because since it is such a small school, everyone knows everyone and people are a very inclusive. Our ASB Leadership class is amazing and puts on events throughout the year that make everything more enjoyable and brings everyone together!

The schooling overall was very effective if kids were enrolled in classes like AP or honors. However, the basic classes with no advancement had very little expectations. Teachers in charge of those classes expected nearly nothing from those students and thus made a very lackadaisical learning environment. Also, sports teams that weren't football or boys' basketball got little to no attention from the athletic director. Coaching staffs for many of the sports need to be revamped.
My experience at this school has been pretty tame, they don't do a lot in terms of school spirit, but nobody really cares, however the teacher and classes are where this school really shines. The teacher are always helpful and do their best to make sure that every student leaves their classroom understanding the materials, and all teachers are friendly and, even if you don't have their class, there are a lot of opportunities to get to know them and develop close bonds with the staff at Atascadero High School.
