    The biggest bullies in this school are the police chief and vice principal. The teachers can't or won't teach ~ and that is when there is an actual teacher available for a class. There have been times when my son showed up for class only to be met with an empty classroom with the lights off. We have pulled our son out to homeschool so he can get a real education.

    If there is a worse school out there I would love to see it. The princiapls and most of the teachers have their priorities all messed up. They worry so much about dress code which is the main problem anyway and worry less about teaching the kids and the principals don't give a rats behind either. And they woner why everyone is misbehaiving so badly. I'm glad I only have one more year here

    i go to this sorry school every day. every day that i go the school makes me want to drop out more and more. if i was going to rate this school i would give it a 2. i mean ; you're supposed to go to school to get a good education rite?? at this school the the teachers don't really teach because almost all of the kids are thuggish, wanna be gangster, and could care less about getting a education that could make their lives allot easier in the long run. i hate this place!!

    I am going to be a freshman at Athens High School and even though I am not yet enrolled, the school is very excellent. They have expanded their foreign language to two choices now. Those are French and Spanish. The music program is growing and I am in the band. They are planning on splitting up the band. That's how big the program is growing! The teachers there are terrific anf they do help individual students who need it. They have added more choices for students to pick from for their schedules. The school is terrific and I can't wait till I'm an official student of Athens High School. Home of the Hornets.

    This school is just not cut out to teach students, I have been very dissapointed in the learning, i dont like it, no one does, several of my peers are either switching schools or graduating early next year. no one enjoys the day to day experience here at AHS. I hope in the coming years they can shape this school up.

    I am a new hiree at AHS and, so far, am really enjoying the experience. The new leadership is experienced, helpful, and friendly and my fellow teachers seem to really care about the students.

    Athens rules! I love this school... It is the first school I actually feel at home with. Sure you have to get past the moderate 'clicks' but overall I'm having a great hs experience! Go hornets!

    I have been very disappointed in this school,they do not give help to the kids that really want to learn yet have problems. If a students not doing well in a subject you should do everything you can to help. Yet we have teachers who will only help if the student will do it at the teachers convenience.

    We're very disappointed in the quality of education at this school. Mediocrity & 'good enough for them' is the attitude of the district and town. They feel there is no world outside of Athens, so why progress? It's far from a college-prep school. We've had enough & are moving out.

    I have been most disappointed with Athens High School. I can only describe the campus as a day care center for teenagers. The lack of emphasis on education is so obvious and seems not to bother the administration. It's looked upon as the norm here - a child is not expected to receive an education at Athens High School and if by chance a former AHS student achieves some level of success in life it's viewed as wow - how did that happen? The drama dept has had a few years of success - largely due to the prior training students have received from the community theatre.

    Athens High School is a school with opportunity. The academic program there is good, and it has a great music and art program. Though parents are too much involved, if you were looking for a small town high school to go to, Athens is the place. I loved my days a AHS.

    Severly lacking in the academic programs. Only one foreign language to pick from (Spanish). Dangerous bullies. Nearly zero support for the arts or music. Football is practically worshiped, and Coaches do double duty as sub-par science teachers. Extreme predjudice of anything out of the ordinary. I love learning, yet I HATED this place.
