    "My overall experience in Amherst County High School started off fine my freshman year and then everything fell my sophomore year. The school is disgusting and needs repair. I seen a rat in the vocational wing and also in a math class. The teachers are not supportive and the term "No student left behind" doesn't apply anymore. It's like they don't care about our education. The school could be improved by repairing the building (while we are not in school), giving better food options, allowing for students to get help, and etc."

    "Amherst County High school is a great school to attend. Are there things I would change? Yes. But overall, my experience has been great. I had many outstanding teachers over the last 4 years. I am looking forward to graduation, but it also saddens me a little. Simply because Amherst County High school has given me a great experience. I have learned a lot over the past four years. I even earned my Emergency Medical Technician Licenses. I am proud to be a Lancer!"

    "While I have enjoyed my time at Amherst, it could be much better. The Board doesn't have enough money to fund the school like Lynchburg does. However, the teachers charisma and friends can make the school seem better. Most of the detrimental characteristics of the school are that of any high school. Drugs are common among the more mischiefous and foolish students. Many of the students are not worried about college or even their high school careers. Despite the apathy of many students, a good one-third of the student body are very competitive about their grades and each student in this group are close in their classes and their class rank. I have fallen in with the better crowd, as I am number eleven in my senior class of just over three hundred. I have enjoyed my time at this school as it will prepare any student for the real world, where many people do bad things, and few prepare for their own future."

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