Akron Central School District Reviews
What I really admire about Akron is the effort that the teachers provide students on their own time when they aren’t required to be teaching. Whether it be a lunch period, before school starts or even in between classes, the teachers always are accessible and ready to help. Akron although small, demonstrates what it really means to be connected with everyone and the community. The school is always volunteering and providing the community around it and it truly has been a pleasure to have grown all 13 years with this district. As my ending is approaching soon as an Akronite, I know that whenever I’m feeling sad or in a state of wanting to come back to my childhood I always can, because “once a tiger, always a tiger”!
Akron Central School offers a variety of resources. This year is the first year that the high school has had a full time Psychologist! Akron also has a lot of diversity and culture. The school is located relatively close to the Tonawanda Reservation. As a result, many Native American student attend Akron Central School. However, they don't just attend our school, but immerse other students in traditional Native American traditions. In elementary school, student attend a Native American Studies class everyday and in high school Native American is offered as a language! Sports and clubs are also a huge component of Akron. Men's Varsity Lacrosse has gone to states twice! Akron also offers a variety of clubs such as, Student Government, Gay Striaght Alliance, Interact Club and much more! Last but not least the academics. At Akron the teachers are amazing. Most, if not all teachers of all academic programs offer extra help and asisitance during their lunch break.
I had some teachers who really cared about educating us, but then they were let go. The school puts a lot of stress on being respectful and kind to each other, but doesn't do much about the lack of opportunities. In a small town, a few families rule. Popular girls would get a free pass when breaking dress code rules or badmouthing teachers when other students would get detention for missing homework. There wasn't a lot of opportunities for community involvement and administration was too interested in sports rather than the arts.
