Athens High School Reviews

From the moment I walked into Athens high school, I knew it was the right place for me. I absolutely love Athens with a passion, it has helped me grow and become a better person in general and academically. I'm involved in so many activities. There is a lot to do at athens, I would recommend anyone to go there. Sadly, I'll be a senior next year and I have to go off to college, but I will take all that I learn from athens and put that in my daily learning and daily living. Athens will forever be the best high school ever!
Review Athens High School
The principal, Dr. Scrimsher, is focused on giving students a proper education. Most teachers at Athens are experienced, especially the Honors and AP teachers. The selection of classes is broad and provides various opportunities for students to learn what they are interested in. There are also a wide variety of clubs, including Student Council Association, Spanish Club, and Students Against Destructive Decisions.
I enjoyed my high school experience at Athens High School for the most part. I made personal relationships and connections with many of the teachers, which I believe is a large part of learning in high school. AHS had many options for challenging classes, which greatly prepared me for college, and I think that has a lot of value. If I could go and change something about my high school, it would probably be the administration. A lot of the staff other than teachers did not seem very approachable and welcoming to me, which ruined some of the environment around the school. I think that everyone experiences their high school differently, but I think that Athens was an excellent school to prepare me for college.
