Most teachers are great but some of them are lazy. They make u watch a video and answer the questions which they like to call "study guide" a lot of people there are untouchable. If u say something to them, expect to get punched in the face
I love all that this school has to offer each child. Children who wish to have an accelerated path can do so with Athens extensive AP courses, STEM Program, and Medical Science academy. For those with specials needs, they have a strong program. The school is a fit for children from diverse backgrounds. The teachers truly care, the band program is excellent. Excited for the new football stadium in Fall of 2017. So much to offer and you only know about if your children attend! Great parents involved at the school!
We have been very pleased with our sons' experiences at Athens Drive High School. I have a Master's Degree in Education and am currently a Realtor so schools are very important to me for personal reasons and for resale and home value reasons. The STEM program at Athens is exceptional! The teachers are truly caring and supportive and bring out the best in every student. Take the time to truly explore the school and programs and interview faculty and parents. We are fully confident that when our sons graduate, they will be very well equipped and ready for the real world!
I can't say enough about the excellence of this school. Do your research and learn more!!! STEM and Health Science Academies, 20 AP courses, award winning music and arts programs, SMART Lunch, involved Jaguar Club and PTSA, 60+ clubs, teacher presence during the day and easy access to administration. Caring teachers that engage and challenge students. Don't believe what others who don't know anything about our school say. Do your own research. Your child will be ready and more than prepared for college and life! It was and is the best choice for us!
Our son joined Athens Drive High School his Junior year-which could have been pretty difficult for a high school kid. To our great pleasure he was welcomed with open arms. There were no "clicks" to deal with and he slid right in like he'd been with the students from the beginning. The academic aspect of the school is very impressive. The teachers and administrative staff are there to support the students reach their full potential.
Athens High provides an education that prepares children for wonderful future endeavors. The teachers genuinely care for the students. The extracurriculars offered here are better than many others. My children thrive here and are setting goals for college.
While there are some hardworking teachers, many are demoralized and insubordinate! This school is not safe...areas that are in serious trouble regarding safety are the lunch room, and school grounds during lunch period, there are fights and the staff can't supervise. Partly because they have one lunch time for the whole school. Also gym activities have quite a bit of violent behavior that is overlooked by staff.
ADHS is a hidden gem of a school in WCPSS. Incredible programs such as STEM, Band, Orchestra, Theater, Special Ed and incredibly supportive booster clubs make Athens a great community school. Teachers communicate and offer many opportunities for help outside the classroom. Perfect choice for our children.
