    "The best and worst part about Athens drive is its diversity. I love going to a school that is not homogeneous because the world we live in is not homogeneous. However, with so much variety in socioeconomic class at Athens you have the a large variety in the parenting style which translates through its students. Some higher socioeconomic parents are very involved in Athens coming to all athletic and academic events. You also have students whose parents seem too busy to be bothered with their child's education. Failing a academic class, or the lowest level course, is unacceptable yet students fail all the time. I know this is not Athens fault but teachers should reach out to students like this. Students should have many opportunities to get involved in school and show how failing just one class effects your life and likelihood of getting into college."

    "I think the sense of community at this school is pretty strong. It has a lot of diversity; not just one race or ethnic group dominates the population. I would choose to go to this school again if I had to do it all over simply because of the teachers and the diversity."

    "Over all the school is very split. There are many different racial and religious groups. I think this help some students break racial stereotypes but for other students it reinforces stereotypes."

    "My experience at Athens drive high school has been interesting to say the least. I have had teachers who would go the extra mile every day to explain and and help their students, but I have also had teachers who could care less! I have been on only one field trip after three whole years of attending Athens. That is unacceptable especially because students learn from real life examples as well as traveling! On top of that, there are no medium level classes, either you take AP level courses and metaphorically die because you have no time for anything but school, or you take academic level (lowest level) classes where you also metaphorically die because the majority of students in academic classes do not have the ability to read!! The honors classes which are the true medium level classes are always mixed in with many academic level students which hold back the medium or honors level students. As if this isn't bad enough teachers are afraid to truly teach in fear of anything they say which is slightly controversial will get back to our principle who will then fire them! life is controversial and students should be taught how to think through harder topics and form their own opinions! Although I recognize that many of these problems stem from the school system my teachers and I are stuck in, some of these problems can still be approached and solved on the lower level!"
