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!
I have had a terrific high school experience. The staff and students are friendly and helpful. There was never a moment in high school or entering high school when I felt scared to be there, or a feeling that I would be lost. The support systems at the school offer students many opportunities to find a place to fit in. In fact, there are faculty members who are there specifically for school morale (the legendary Duke McGuire). Amherst is not a huge school, yet it still has more clubs than larger schools. The academies for business are tremendous for students as well. For myself, who is majoring in marketing, I have been supported and inspired from the teachers in the Academy. They have helped me network, and even start my own club.
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,
