The guidance secretary helps so many students and teachers alike. She makes sure students are directed to the help they need and she keeps teachers informed of scheduling changes, posting of grades, and student needs.
Teachers are knowledgeable in their specific area of study. Students have a great variety of choices in classes including the arts, CTE (career and technical education), advanced placement, and honors courses, etc.
I have found that many students just don't have the time to do homework. Today, students have jobs, extra-curricular activities, and sports. Many classes do not require homework if students are present, or homework is utilized as enrichment. AP classes are the exception.
Faculty members do their best to develop respect among members of school. Although there will always be times when students are not respectful (let's face it; they are kids and may not understand the consequences of their actions), when issues are brought to the attention of adults, action is taken. That doesn't always mean punishment , often it's a learning experience.
One specific example of compassion, caring, and empathy shown among Antigo High School students occurred at the local Antigo Idol competition a few years ago. One special needs student entered the stage during the voting process to sing a song. Cheers of encouragement and an abundance of clapping after the performance showed how wonderful the students at AHS are. Moments like that make any member of our community proud.
Antigo High School utilizes PBIS which helps guide students to a better future. With the motto "Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Here," faculty members promote the values of our community and society.
Antigo High School is an excellent school for students to learn through the use of technology, small and large group interaction, and teacher guidance. Students in grades 9 and 10 (with future years planned) are given chromebooks to aid in keeping track of assignments, books, and homework. Many extra-curricular activities are available to enhance student experiences.
Great school for great students. Unfortunately it bypasses average or below students often losing track of a students progress and not contacting parents of poor grades or attendence before it is too late. Only a good school for the above average child.
this school is ok as far as achooling goes, but is it realy necessary to have police officers and probation officers in the school. I do not think so. it is a small town. we are just wasting tax payer money. shouldn't the principle handle disipling the childern, like back in the old days. they are treating these childern like they are adults. the are just kids. treat them like kids. do not go around giving them criminal records for things that tend to do. having to go to court for a fight at school, or some other childish act is wrong. this is just so the courts of this small town can make money. if you love your kids you do not want to bring them here. its just the truth.
