Amherst Exempted Village School District Reviews

Amherst Exempted Village School District is an excellent school when it comes to academics. They offer high level classes as well as a lot of ways to succeed in your future career choices. I happened to be a lucky student, I got into our medical program at our high school in which I got a good amount of my prerequisite classes for nursing completed as well as I earned my Stna license allowing me to work in a nursing home. The academics may be high, however, when it comes to sports, teachers, students, and administration we, as a community, lack communication and equitableness. Our teachers are exceptional, however, they do not focus on us learning the material, the teachers main focus is getting through their lectures (if they even lecture at all) as well as focusing on passing us. They want us to pass and not necessarily learn or understand what we are learning so they make the content easy and grade leniently while offering an abundance of extra credit to help our grades out.

This school system is one of the best around! They offer a great variety of classes, even specialty courses that provide college credit. The schools also have a plethora of sports, clubs, and other fun extracurricular activities.
Trying to get any help or questions answered from the administration is almost impossible. If your family doesn't have money to donate to the school and you don't have parents that can donate all of their time, then getting help or advancing is almost impossible. The district has the ability to be great, but it is in desperate need of a change in shot callers and administration. This applies for sports as well, which is why most of their teams are awful. If you can't buy your kid a spot on the team, don't waste your money on the $400/year pay to play fee.
