Athens Area High School Reviews
Athens is a great school with very supportive community. There are several upperclassmen privileges not a lot of other schools have, such as open campus: being able to leave on study hall/ free periods. The teachers, faculty and administrators all just want the students to succeed and give them every tool possible to achieve that.
When looking back at my high school career it was very enjoyable. Some things that I would change about the school would be having more teachers help me with getting help with scholarships, collage applications, etc.
Face same problems as schools across the nation.
the teachers set up pretty good class options that offer a variety to the students
the student culture is not very diverse at the school. there is not a lot of peer pressure that goes on and most are accepting of decisions.
there are extra curriculars available but the students are not encouraged very often to join them. it has to be decided at their own will to want to be a part of them.
it depends on the parents and the situation on how they contribute to the school over all and their attitudes toward the teachers as well as the other students.
the majority of the teachers make learning worth it
I am in both Rho Kappa national Social Studies Honors Society and National Honors Society. I am proud to be in both and other people often think its a great thing to be a part of. The school presented my opportunity to both of these so I thank the school for these.
The teachers that are available to me are always willing to give advice and help on things. They're also very easy to talk to and have a conversation with when you have something to talk about. They often give real-life examples and explain why we're learning things so we understand the importance. And also they're not only knowledgeable on the topic they teach but can also be help with many other things.
Seems that most everyone are typical middle class, that have a problem with judging anyone that isn't the areas normal.
Overall great, but I wish there were more optional courses.
Overall good, but there could be better measures taken to ensure the safety of the students and faculty.
lots of activities, and so much to do outside of school.
This school is full of really nice people, such as the teachers, and staff. The students, however, are very rude. They are really good teachers, but the students are disrespectful.
Great course options,and many chances for college credits. Most teachers go above and beyond to help their students. A few issues that should be addressed, but it is over all a great school.
