Athens High School Reviews

92 reviews

Although I loved going to school here and I wouldn't move to another high school if my parents tried to force me, I feel that some areas of the school could improve. The school doesn't have much money and often has many paper shortages, the lunches aren't very healthy, there isn't much diversity within the school although there are many diverse clubs. The school's building itself seems cheap and could use a much needed renovation, but I believe the school board is already talking about building a new school. The administration had problems with how they "handled" bullying and could use some work, but the teachers are wonderful. I love Athens and wouldn't move for the world, but I give it 4 stars.

Compared to surrounding high schools, Athens is great. Compared to other Ohio high schools, not so much. We are good at sports, and a lot of our attention goes to that. We lag behind in AP classes, resources, and college readiness. Administration at this school shows the minimal amount of respect or care for any of the students (excluding guidance counselors). As with the rest of Athens, this school is very safe, but not very diverse.
Athens High School is like any other high school. Some classes are challenging, some are boring. The school offerers many AP classes and great teachers to go along with them. The french program is terrific. There are also three categories of students: Student athletes, stoners, and rednecks. Athens is a great town but since the school is located in the Plains, about three miles from Athens it's a bit less exciting.
