    "Altus high school is a wonderful school, with wonderful teachers, but I think they are way too focused on our test scores and not really what we learn or how we learn it."

    "I recently moved here in January and so far what I like about this school is that they provide the students with many chances to prepare for there future. They provide students with programs and activities that help guide students to become successful. Though, I would like to see the school expand in there JROTC program and tone down on there strict rules."

    "Altus has a great, small town feel. However, the school itself feels behind. The teachers teach so that the students can pass tests, not so that they may learn and remember. They recently went under budget cuts and the result was that many programs were cut. Also, because of the small town vibe, football is a big thing. This is great until you realize every other sport has less funds."

    "Altus High School stands together through the good times and the bad. On February 14, 2016, our community lost three wonderful teenage boys. While one of them was not from our school district we mourned and honored him just the same. Our school is a community full of caring individuals. Even through our rough times we fight through and come out stronger than ever."
