    I rate this school a ZERO.. This is my childs first year at this school and with any luck we wont even finish the school year out. My child came home so upset and stated that they would rather be dead and kill theirself than spend another day with any of teachers and staff. One teacher went as far as to call my child "Supid" infront of other studens and began a discussion on just how "stupid" my child is. My child was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome (a form of Autism) and a couple of other mental disabilities. My child is NOT stupid actually the total opposite. When you go out of your way to "pick on" a child just to feel superior you then become the STUPID one.

    We just moved here from another state our son Is a special needs child. We have found that the Atchison school district and the high have been Been very welcoming and expecting of our Son. The students and staff are very friendly. We have found that education is wonderful Being the test scores are better than we thought They would for a small town plus they are on The cutting edged being every student is given a iPad .

    Atchison High School is second to none. We have a great faculty that is more than qualified and capable of leading our children into a great future. We have many programs that help each and every student succeed. You can't get a better education anywhere. Go Atchison.

    Atchison is the most wonderful school in the world. The teachers have been there for years and really care about their students on more than just a professional basis. The school offers advanced courses in music art and drama. They have state champion debate and forensics team who have banners hanging in the cafeteria. I went to this school and feel as though I received the best education possible. The parents are involved tremendously chapperoning events such as prom homecoming and regulating afterprom. The only quib about Atchison is that the principals have a tendency to leave. In my four years of high school I've had four different principals all of whom worried more about failing students than watching them succeed. The material is new and up-to-date allowing students to get the best learning possible. There are new computers and laptops available for students whenever they need them. It earns A+.
