Athol High School Reviews

The major extracurriculars are the music departmant and the sports teams. The Music Department in particular has won many awards for their performances, yet lack in funding compared to the sports teams who, more often than not, struggle. The drama club and music department put on many great performances and shows, yet lack support from the community. This is not to say that the music and drama clubs are bad, but they simply are put on the back burner behind the sports teams. Many students find their closest friends and make lasting memories in whatever extracurricular activity they choose (with many students engaging in both). There is also a variety or smaller clubs as well, such as Chess Club, Video Game Club, Gay Straight Alliance, Student Council, NHS, to name a few

I have grown up in the Athol-Royalston districts, and they were all good/average. Although some teachers aren't the greatest, the good out does the bad. Every student has Raider pride, and shows their school spirit. Teachers prepare us for college and push us to do better, so we can become successful and active members of the community. The school may be old, and the food isn't always satisfying, but the education you acquire and the community within the school is worth it.
The school is great. Just recently there has been a huge amount of renovations and improvements to the building. Not only the building, but also the staff. The halls have been redone with new tiles, the auditorium is getting new seats, and the locker rooms are getting new lockers. Along with this the school itself has always been more than adequate when it comes to staff and extra help. Overall just a really great school.
