Athens High School
#122 Best Public High Schools in Ohio
- Athens City School District, OH
Senior: Athens is one of, if not the best, high school in the county academically, partly due to its proximity to OU and intellectual student body contributed by university faculty. It offers significantly more AP classes than others in the region, and has high achieving students each year. That said, it is the "best" relative to the other schools because the region is very poor and there is a socioeconomic divide in the student body. In many ways it still cannot compare to the richer schools in the mid-Ohio region. But the staff is genuinely dedicated to education, even if the students don't always agree with their decisions.

Senior: I have attended University School since I was in Kindergarten and now find myself in my Senior year. I have seen the school evolve and thrive under our former Headmaster Steve Murray. Diversity has improved dramatically from my early years.
Under the current administration, socioeconomic diversity remains an opportunity but the school is very much aware of its need to continue its focus there. The values of the school, “Responsibility, Loyalty and Consideration” are applied more consistently than at any time during my attendance . And, the connection to the community is stronger than its ever been. I am proud to be a student there.
I find the school committed to getting to know me as a person and teaching me as I learn rather than applying a cookie cutter approach to education. The school remains committed to erudition and I have received a great education.
