Athens high school is not the best school. There is metal detectors in the library, drug dogs once or twice a month, random drug test, and you get sent to in school suspension for every little thing. They only care about the football team that is not even that good. there is roaches on the floor, walls, and ceiling, bugs everywhere, its just gross. Also the dress code is strict for no reason. We cant wear jeans or anything that looks like jeans, we have to wear a polo with no logo, we cant wear hoodies and our jackets have to be unzipped, and were a public school. I would understand if we were private but we're not.

My experience was a great one! What made it a great experience for me was being involved in many extra-curricular activities, like band, theatre, choir, academic teams, and student council. You have the power to make going to high school here the best or worst time of your life. This school is unique because the invisible boundaries of "cliques" seem to be torn down by the student body. We all talked to everyone. If I could do it all over again, I would go to AHS, but I would make sure to do all of my homework.
Athens high school has a fairly wide variety of extracurricular activities, such as band, various sports, cheer, and drill team.

Band is a widely regarded popular extracurricular activity, and the band participates and excels in competitions and events each year. Everyone in the band is committed to continuing the built excellence and execute all actions with pride.

The administration greatly supports the band, as the Athens superintendent attended the band's UIL Area Marching Contest and the assistant principle attended the UIL Region Marching Contest.

A wide variety of sports are available, such as track, swimming, tennis, football, baseball, basketball, volleyball, softball, soccer, powerlifting, etc. All members of the sports teams are dedicated to their work and participation on the teams.

Various clubs are available as well, like fishing, recycling, key club, bible study, debate (team) and likely many more I'm not even aware of!

Then of course there are all of the UIL Teams students can become a part of, and as far as those go, the list is far too long to try to tackle.

As a whole, Athens High School has a good mixture of well-loved extracurricular clubs, organizations, and sports teams for its students to participate in.
