Teachers at my school really care about student success and are willing to do anything for us. In order to keep up with my rigorous academic schedule, I usually stay after school a couple times a week. My teachers have no problem with me and my class mates asking for help out side of school. In fact, if I'm doing my homework and I need help, I can simply email my teacher my question and they will email me back with assistance in a short period of time. My school doesn't have the best student body, there are more "bad kids" than good. I respect my teachers and staff at my school because I know they aren't treated with the respect they deserve. Even though our district has some down falls including old facilities, lack of adequate financial flexibility, and a large amount of students who do not care, I wouldn't change a thing about my education. Attending Atchsion County Community High School has opened so many doors for me. Being apart of National Honor Society and Kays (a serive organization) had allowed me to give back to my community. As a member of the student council, I've learned valuable leadership skills that will continue to help me later in life. As a member of math club and science club, I've been given the opportunities to extend my education by attending trips and competing in competitions. I was asked to become a mentor for a seventh grade student. As a mentor I meet with Gage once a month to look over his academics and to talk about any social problems that occur within the school. Being a mentor has evolved my "people skills" and has inspired me to do more for others.

I feel that here at Atchison County Community High School we are an awesome school. There's never any fights, there's not very much bullying. Every school eventually has problems somewhere along the line, but in my time being here it has been very easygoing. I love it here. The staff is great! The teachers are helpful in every way they can be, the nurse is such a caring person. The staff here in general is amazing. Everyone is polite. It's a great environment.
Most of the teachers are great, there is a few that aren't very good at teaching. At our school the teachers have to have grades in the gradebook in a ceratin amount of time, but some teachers don't follow that rule which could be stressful to the students. An occasional teacher that doesn't know what to do with the kids that are constantly disrupting class. But on the other hand, there is teachers is here that do care about the students and get after them for disrupting class, they enter grades on time, they go above and beyond to help the students.
