Amherst Central School District Reviews
I like how open minded Amherst is. There, we are taught not to conform, but to be different. The people at Amherst make it great too. Out of all my years of going to school, K-12, the past four years in high school have been the most enjoyable and seemingly the easiest simply because the people, including the faculty and the students, are easy going, agreeable and fun to be around. It makes you look forward to going to school. It is a very comfortable environment. I will miss it next fall when I am not a student anymore!
Overall I had a good experience at Amherst. Academically, I felt they allowed me to be placed into classes that prepared me for college by offering numerous AP opportunities. Our teachers were engaging , and there were numerous clubs and activities to suit a great variety of students. Our music department is second to none. It is a safe environment with little concern for bullying, etc. my overall experience at Amherst has been a positive one,
The school seemed to be indifferent to their students. The culture amongst the students is very toxic, and this also true between the students and teachers. Honestly it only feels as though the only people that matter were the kids that were in sports. The Art programs were horrendous and treated the art teacher herself terribly.
