I am a junior at AC right now, and who better to get a perspective from than a student? As a child I always attended Knox County Schools. They were always top notch and very focused on education. AC, however, seems very focused on football. More so than education. I am in the band and we haven't gotten new uniforms in 10 years. The school only pays for one of our three buses we have to take to every game. Mr.Brown, the band director, is an amazing man. Best teacher I've ever had. Not to mention Mrs.Watson (French), Mr.Ortstadt (science), and Mrs.Perry (english). They are some of my favorite and most inspiring and devoted teachers. But as for most of the rest of the teachers, they are also coaches. And are much more focused on their teams than their class. Anyway, I think the band deserves more attention! We have HUNDREDS of trophies lining the band room that nobody seems to recognize, despite our lack of support we've always been an amazing, headstrong band, thanks to Paul Brown!

The college retention rate of Anderson county graduates is extremely low. There are a few exceptions, but for the most part this school lacks in passionate teachers. I would not recommend this school to any parents who want their children to be successful. I would consider a private school in Knoxville before sending my child to school there.

I had two sons graduate from AC and went on to become very successful. They credit the teachers they had there with the success they later had in college. In addition they both played football and will tell you that the commitment that is made to athletics there did not deter from the academic mission of the school. I highley recommend AC as a place for a challenging and well rounded education.

Anderson County High School has a great atmosphere for students. My daughter enjoys going to school there, and that is one thing that I couldn't say about her school before we moved to Tennessee. But I am concerned about the quality of academics. There seems to be no one watching what's going on in the classroom; I can't count the movies my daughter watched in the 2nd semester of school, many of which had nothing to do with the content area. The academic challenge is not there.

My child is a sophomore at Anderson county right now, and she loves it. it's the kind of school where every one fits in somewhere and where you cna just be who you want to be. she is in the band, and I must say, it is extraordinary! all the other extracurricular activities are well put together and provide and opportunity to learn and have fun. I find that I can be very involved and kept up to date with everything. their academic programs are excellent as well. as long as the child stays focused and actually tries to pay attention, then they will receive a top notch education. I would recommend this school to any one who wants to give their kids a quality education and a great chance to experience life.

This school is too football oriented and lacks academic achievement. With the exception a small handfull of teachers, the quality of the education received is poor.

My step-daughter goes to ACHS and she seems very pleased. She comments daily on the great Language Arts and Spanish teachers and classes. ACHS has taken our children and made them into leaders. I plan on sending my children there as well. -Diana Moser
