The teachers at Athens High School are very diverse. For example, I have a couple teachers that I can easily communicate with and I sometimes go to their classroom in my available time even if I do not have that teacher currently. On the other hand, I have some teachers that are not very approachable and I have a hard time in their class because of the lack of communication. The consistency in grading is also diverse between teachers. Some have the grades posted immediately, while others wait until the day of progress reports to post any. Like I said, the teachers are diverse and have different ways of doing everything. But because of these teachers, Athens High School has a great education system.
Athens High School has not been the best experience for me, but it could be worse. Sports games are very popular here and can be very fun. This school has a great education system, but the people here can make going to school difficult to like. Many students are very judge-mental and stuck up. On the other hand, there are many nice and humble people here that make attending school easier. If I could do it all over again I definitely would not because school has not been the best experience for me. If I could did it over again having the knowledge I have now, I might so that I could have a better outcome.
