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 high school experience here was exceptional! The teachers here are like mentors, they always look out for the students best interests and are very understanding and caring. The staff always works their hardest to make sure everyone has their best experience. There are also many different clubs and teams, so everyone has an opportunity to do what interests them.
My overall experience with Amherst was very good, specifically high school. I spent the majority of my time in the music department. I loved the time I spent in the music wing and I learned so many life skills during my time. Academics wise, I felt very prepared for college and the workload was pretty streamlined. The only problem I had at the high school was some of the faculty. You can easily tell that there is extreme tension between faculty members and some teachers take that out on students. Administration tends to look away from this and this causes unnecessary stress among students.
