Athens Area School District is an awesome school! The teachers are so friendly and helpful! We have great teachers, principals, and staff who are always willing to give up their time to help you out with whatever it may be. I'm a sophomore in high school, and plan on attending a 4 year college to get my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I love school and everything about it, and with great teachers at my school district, made me decide what I want to do for my career! I will then plan on getting my masters eventually! Again, Athens Area School District is a great school, and they've helped me make up my mind on what I want to do in the future!
