This is a school where you will find a lot of good things along with a lot of problems. There are limited resources, so the building is literally falling apart. Extracurriculars other than sports are not well supported, so they can easily fall apart if students are not completely dedicated to them. There are not enough resources for mental health counseling and assistance by any means. On the other hand, there are some amazing teachers here. If you find the right people and places to focus on, the experience of attending Athens High School can be pretty great.

I'm going into my third year of high school at AHS, and so far I've had an amazing experience. Wonderful staff. Great student environment. However, the downfall is the social class diversity in the school, which can lead to some issues as a student, but I've never personally had a problem with that. Overall, Athens High has a great learning and social environment, with many opportunities for students such as AP and CC+ class options, along with many fun electives and extracurricular activities. I've had a great experience so far!!
Overall I had a good experience at Athens High School. Most of my teachers were amazing and very helpful. Te overall environment was pretty good as well but everybody has their own experience. Something I would like to change is to have locks that work in the bathroom stalls, more interactive learning, and study halls that are in a classroom and not the auditorium. Another thing I would want changed, not just at my school but all high schools is quality and inclusive sex education. This also would include a mandatory lesson/ presentation on consent.
