Looking back at my High School career I can't complain a bit. With great memories of Harris's at Lunch hour and teachers like Mr. Shirley I will always have fond memories. I was a Hammonite and was accepted with open arms. Barely graduating was a blessing and I am also gonna be proud of my roots there at AHHS Rajahs Forever!!! Kris(DunkMan)Binder

As alumni of Atwood-Hammond, I would like to say that I am very proud of where I came from. The community is a excellent place to raise a family. Although the school currently lacks a strong administration their are some excellent young teachers on the staff. Granted being a small school you are not provided with all of the opportunies in Curriculum and extracurricular activities that one can get at say a larger school. However, I can assure you that when I attended college I was much more well prepared for what was to come than most of my fellow students. Furthermore, the biggest problem with Atwood-Hammond Schools maybe that there is too much parent involvement. As a coach's son and brother of another coach I have seen this first hand. However, the positives greatly outweigh the negatives and Atwood-Hammond is a school worth attending.

As a graduate, parent, taxpayer and supporter of A-H, I find the Administration, Teachers and Staff to be dedicated individuals who give their time and talent towards the educational advancement of our youth. As a life-long citizen of Atwood and as a current school board member I find our educational curriculum to be average considering the financial condition of our district. The district has outstanding facilities and the students have a great school spirit. We have a 100% graduation rate. I find that those who bad mouth their local school district based upon wild accusations and believe that the total worth of a district is based upon whoever is Superintendent or Principal is lacking in common sense and credibility; especially when they are willing to put their name behind their comments.

This school is very close minded and I have to say that I did not enjoy anything about attending this school. Atwood Hammond High School is slightly reminiscent of the Salem Witch Trials, at least much more so than it is of a decent Public School district. Besides all of that their two best teachers are gone. Most of us former students long for the days of former principal Todd Pence. Fortunatly for him though, he's moved on to bigger and better things. I would rate A-HHS with an F -

I do not believe that Atwood-Hammond fosters an intellectually or emotionally diverse environment, and this school is not particularly open to exceptional students
