    "I wouldn't say it's the worst, but it definitley isn't the best. A lot of the kids that I have met have no manners and seemed to have no clue what respect is. I see countless kids always pulling out their phone and/or eating candy during class which distracts me from learning. They do not offer French, I was lucky enough to be able to take it online, which really doesn't help kids learn the language that they want to learn. (Most of the kids that I have interviewed would rather take French than Spanish or Latin.) At thsi school it's a warzone. You either make friends with the popular kids or you're shot dead. Most of the clubs that we have are for highschoolers or for Spanish and Latin students."

    "It's actually quite decent. Of course 1 teacher will ruin it all, but that is with every school I suppose."

    "Most of the teachers I got were amazing, but some of them weren't, A few were just my personal preference, but the others, who weren't at AHS that long, were awful. They barely taught the class. My whole class, except me and a small minority, failed the SOL test we had to take in that class one time."

    "Depending on the subject of the class some teachers go out of their way to help students. Some teachers have after school sessions to help students who are struggling in their class. Another way the teachers help students is by having study groups before tests or quizzes."

    "Altavista High School is a school with only around 500 students. At Altavista High School, everyone knows everyone and everyone has respect towards one another. The administration at the school cares for everyone in the school. The principal knows every students' name and says "Good Morning" and "Have a nice afternoon!" Every afternoon before leaving school, our principal gives the announcements and at the end he always says, " In your #1 Colonel Country". Those five words will always remind me where I came from. If you go to Altavista or an alumni of the school you will know what that means and how special it is to be an Altavista Colonel."
