I love everything about Atlee. I'm a senior here. Everyone is friendly. The administration make you feel comfortable and you can talk to them about anything. The teachers are amazing and they'll help you with anything you need. We have several AP, IB, Dual, and Advanced classes that'll have you ready for college. Academically, Atlee is the best high school in Hanover County, ranking at #32 in Virginia. The "rage cage" is one of the best parts of being a raider. Atlee has one of the most supportive student body. With 26 Varsity teams, Atlee has had 13 state championships. We also have many clubs that anyone can join! The only thing I'd change about Atlee is the food, the new food program isn't the best. Other than that Atlee is great. And I'm blessed to have had the opportunity to walk these halls, cheer in the rage cage, win multiple state championships, and just be a raider. Thank you Atlee for the best high school experience a girl could ask for.

As a Junior at Atlee I have come to appreciate the strong academic standing and wonderful teachers that are the backbone of our High School. The school takes great pride in supporting our community and the parents and community return the favor by being involved in our activities. I have enjoyed Marching Band and the opportunities for leadership training and travel that the band has provided. Further, the school encourages growth regardless of your level of strength in different areas. No one is left behind, and there is a strong culture among students of lifting one another up.
The best thing about Atlee High School isn't the facilities, it's the people who are in it. I like this school because of the great arts program. This makes up for the lackluster food, bathrooms, and classrooms. The academics are really strong here with an IB and AP program.
With teachers, it just really depends on who you get. You could have one of the best teachers one year, but a horrible one the next year. Some teachers also play a really strong favorites game with the students. The students who are their favorites get away with doing certain things and don't face punishment when they do wrong. This contributes to some of the student's bad attitude.
This school also lacks diversity. Over 90% of the school population is Caucasian, with the rest being minorities. This lack of diversity reflects in topics discussed in class sometimes. Overall, this school is what you make of it, it can either suck or go really well.
