    "I cannot speak for every child at my school. However, I can speak for myself. My mother is extremely involved in my education."

    "Most of the teachers at my school are great. However, a few of them are a tad unapproachable. But overall, I love Amherst County High school."

    "The teachers at Amherst County High School are overall adequate in most scenarios when dealing with students. However, the largest issue in this school system is the lack of trust teacher have for their students. While i realize that not all students are as trustworthy as others, it is disheartening to those of us who do value the truth. It makes it appear as if the school system doesn't value students opinion as a whole. That being said, there are several teachers at my high school that are willing to listen to me and trust my words, and for that I am very appreciative."

    "Yes, if I had it to do all over again, I would choose ACHS. Living in a rural town my entire life, has had both pros and cons. Many of the students I go to school with I have known since elementary school. We have grown up together and will soon be graduating together. While we have our cliques and groups, we all defend one another. It may be okay for us to poke fun at being from Amherst, but we all defend each when its needed. Bottom line is that coming from a small-town school has left me with dozens upon dozens of bonds I would have never had otherwise formed."

    "The majority of students pray for snow days so we don't have to come to the school."
