Amherst Central School District Reviews
I have been a student in the Amherst school district for 10 years. As a graduating senior this year, I would rate my overall experience as unforgettable and exceptional. Not only have a created incredible bonds with both the students and the faculty, I have learned so much about myself, others, and the world around me. Amherst takes time In giving each student the proper education and learning environment suitable to them. It is a very inclusive school equipped with sports, clubs, and extracurricular activities for everyone. Although it will soon be my time to leave Amherst high school, I am glad that I had the opportunity to receive my education from such a wonderful district!
My favorite aspect of Amherst Central High School is the community that has been established during my four years of attendance. The school 's diversity gives students different perspectives that help us to understand each other more than the average high school, which also leads to a closer-knit community. The combination of community and diversity has made Amherst an incredible place to attend high school.
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!
