I love going to Atherton. We are a very inclusive and diverse learning environment. There is something for everyone and there is no way to not make friends because everyone is so loving and crazy it's hard NOT to find someone with the same interests as you. We offer international baccalaureate, AP, and honors classes, with helpful teachers so ensure your best education. A better selection in foreign languages than most schools; including, Japanese, Spanish, Arabic, French, and German.

Atherton is the most inclusive and diverse school you can find. Everyone has a place in the school and no one is left out. Bullying is non-existent because everyone is accepted. Also because they offer great academics such as IB, AP, and honors courses I was super prepared for college. I’m one of the best essay writters in my freshman class thanks to Atherton.
Atherton High School is an inclusive, diverse place! The AP and IB courses will definitely prepare you for collage.
