Appleton Area School District Reviews

I started in the Appleton area school district in 6th grade. I went to Highlands Elementary and I had the best teacher which made things 100 times better. Middle school was very tough for me my parents were getting a divorce and I started seeing a counselor that would come in once a week to meet with me I truly believe that helped me tremendously! And I'm very grateful that was offered for me. I am a senior at Appleton West High school and I've been there for my whole high school career and they have been some of the best and worst years but the counselors, teachers, and students have made my experience a great one. you can truly tell they care about your future while still showing they care about your personal life too. i's a very good balance of discipline and enjoyability.

I have met some great students, coaches, directors, and teachers in the Appleton Area School District. Specifically, West High School is where I have spent my most recent years. It is full of diversity and life-changing experiences. There are clubs and activities for every student to participate in. As a school, we pride ourselves on being inclusive and being able to treat people fairly without judgement. No school is perfect, but there are many that come close. I was fortunate to have spent a majority of my schooling in the Appleton Area School District. There are endless things to say about that community.
The Appleton Area school District was a great school district. There weren't many problems and the very few that there were, were fixed almost immediately. The teachers truly cared for their students and wanted the best for them and their futures. I personally felt comfortable and welcomed in the Appleton Area school District. It was a district that excelled in quite a few areas that allowed students to follow their career pathways and progress. There were so many opportunities in the district to help a student grow and learn especially in High school.
