Atkins High School exceeds in academics! The courses are challenging, but with the help of engaging teachers, I still maintain a 4.0 GPA. I am involved in FBLA, BETA, HOFNOD, Student Council, and Teens for Christ. Each club is involved in community services and fundraising. This makes our trips and conventions possible and fun! I am also involved in basketball (All State), volleyball (All State), softball, and track (District and State Champion).

Personally, I love the extracurricular activities available at Atkins! I am currently a member or a part of: band, F.B.L.A., Beta Club, Student Council, Student Advisory Board, AHS Softball, and AHS Volleyball. This is just a few of the clubs and organizations! The advisers of each of these all work very well together, so you can balance your time in order to participate in as many as you want. At the beginning of the year, several teachers and upperclassmen encourage club membership here.
I love the small town atmosphere of Atkins High School. With only about sixty-five students in my graduating class, I know them all pretty well. Our school has great "Red Devil Pride," and it has always been a comfortable, fun environment to learn in. Something I would change about Atkins High School is, I wish the school would advance in the opportunities of each student to learn more by offering more classes.
