Anchor Bay School District Reviews
Rating 3.9 out of 5 51 reviews
I was part of the Honors Academy at Anchor Bay. I loved that we had a small “school within a school.” Even though we took honors courses, and AP courses, that were offered to other students throughout the school, it was nice having a place of our own and being able to make friends that had some of the same goals as I do. I enjoyed almost all of the teachers. Most of them cared greatly for us students, and went out of their way to help us with any extra help we may have needed. Anchor Bay hash great sports program and offered lots of activities and clubs for us to participate in.
Anchor Bay is a one of a kind school. The building, though large and intimidating to some at first, is neatly organized and usually clean. The programs are a bit limited, but there is a good variety of extracurricular and academic activities.
Anchor bay nourished a positive and fun environment. Everyone has their own ups and nos, but the teachers provided support when people needed them. The coaches for school sports are amazing and kind, as well as most of the teachers.
I'm sure everyone's opinion about school is different. However, for me, Anchor Bay School district was a place I looked forward to going to every morning. I loved the atmosphere and being able to socialize with my classmates. Many of the teachers there were so welcoming and have taught me well. The teacher always tried to connect with their students and make learning enjoyable. I've recently gratuadted from Anchor Bay School District and I can honeslty say I miss going to school every weekday.
It is in a very remote location and that reflects in their academics. Very nice teachers, but the areas of concentration were badly prioritized. Some sports teams were very good and went far, but others never got off the ground. There was a sense of high school culture.
I am very involved with the band program, which is one of the best ones in the state. I am extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to grow up with so many amazing people. It provided me with leadership opportunities and self- improvement. I was also in many advanced classes, which obviously have some of the best teachers in the district. They treat you like any other human being rather than a kid. I really do not have much to complain about other than the stories from friends about other less impressive aspects of the school that I never got to experience.
The teachers I’ve had at this school are very nice and helpful. The school has a nice gym and athletic fields.
I like how we have a variety of different cultures at our school and not one kid is segregated we all get along and we’re all very involved along with the parent participation with everything from school activities to sports even though school has been discontinued for the year and a lot of us students missed out on precious things like softball or seniors missing out on graduating and prom they are still keeping us informed and trying everything they can to celebrate those students
My opportunities to be involved in groups and activities. I also enjoyed how much my parents were able to be a part of my school years
I would really like to see there be more involvement in the academics instead of all the money going into sports. That’s not why we go to school.
We switched school district and it was the best thing I could of done for my daughter!!!! The principal and students at middle school North went over and beyond on making her feel welcome!!!!!
Administration is trash , and absolutely self-centered. The overall animosity is hazardous and horrific . My experience here has been cut- throat i feel unsafe and outright disregarded as a human being . ABHS has put a dent in my self esteem and worth. This school has no sustaining set of morals and is inhumane beyond measure . The level of racism and scrutiny i faced is demeaning and revolting .
Anchor Bay High School taught me a lot about life. The school culture that the students and teachers created made me feel at home and made me feel like I had a second family. We lost five students from my graduating class over the course of middle and high school, and these students were loved by everyone. When these students passed away, this made everyone closer and everyone was there for everyone. We had support groups and everyone would always check on each other to make sure that we were doing alright. Due to us losing so many of our close friends, we never took anyone for granted and grew together as a family. Anchor Bay will forever have a spot in my heart.
There is a variety of classes to take. The academics are great. There are some great teachers, other teachers could be better. About two thousand students go to Anchor Bay, so there is a variety of "clicks" so you are bound to fit in with one group. I really like that we have 50+ foreign exchange students, which started about two years ago. Despite this, there is not as much diversity as my old district. I have been in the Anchor Bay School District for three and a half years, and so far my experience has generally been great.
I would like to see more opportunities offered to student to do dual enrollment at anchor bay. It was not easily attainable to get information on this. The administration was reluctant to give info on this subject to a student who wanted to better themselves.
My experience was overall good are sports teams are very inclusive which is great. Are math department needs some work and I would like to see more involvement of administration. I see not a lot of diversity so i'm excited for college.
Our Teachers are very interested in making sure that we as students are well prepared to enter college.
