Ayer Shirley Regional High School Reviews

Ayer Shirley Regional High School is a school with a brand new building. There is a beautiful auditorium, gym, and lunch room. All the classrooms have interactive projectors, and all the science labs are very adaptable for any class being taught in the room. The one problem is the lack of teachers. We always have great teachers, but many of them have not stayed with the school in recent years, which is very unfortunate. However, we always find great teachers to replace them. In addition we just lost the majority of our administration. I am sure the new administration will be great, but we are starting almost from scratch with the administration.

Ayer Shirley Regional High school although holds a rather accepting facade it is in every way possible just like every other school. Throughout my four years at this school, I've experienced relative support from adults with the acceptance of a few teachers. The few teachers I have truly felt supported by I have developed a great connection with and help me through anything.
When one enters the school, the rules of the real world cease to apply anymore. Students are not given consequences for their behavior, teachers do not teach and are not punished, and administration overlooks the school's flaws. First, the problems have to be acknowledged. Then, an answer has to be suggested.
