Anacortes School District Reviews

Anacortes High School is a great experience for those who like to be leaders. They are given the chances to do so at every opportunity, however those who are not inclined to stand up and lead others, will be dragged in the dust. The small town vibes create a social environment that can be very dramatic- and favor the bold. AHS is extremely focused on sports, and doesn't fund or recognize smaller groups. This year the drama department didn't get a single penny for their show while the football team was graced with extravagance. Like many other schools there are liked and disliked teachers- but in anacortes school district maybe more so. Elementary schools were so great, middle school is bad for everyone (no matter who or where you are) and high school just left many wanting to escape. In anacortes school district, prepare to know everyone's business, strengths, weaknesses, and opinions, and prepare for everyone to know yours.

Good sports, but academics are somewhat lacking, namely foreign language. In the foreign language department, there is one language offered, Spanish, and two of the three teachers do not teach the language, they supply vocabulary and grammar rules, while the third is always different.
Overall I have had a great experience here. Sure there are some things that could be improved such as the facilities, but my teachers and peers have been exemplary. I was lucky to have wonderful teachers for most of my classes. I refrained from a five-star rating because though there are a number of amazing teachers this school district has to offer, there are some that are not so great and leave students confused and unable to understand the material.
