    AHS was great. I just recently graduated and can say that I had a great experience over the four years. I was engaged in sports extracurricular activities and an Honors student. Most of the teachers I had were good at what they did and went above and beyond. However like all schools there are a few teachers that aren't so great. Also AHS has steadily become one of the best schools in the state (test score wise) a commendable achievement given the limited resources. The school has several fields of study all of which are pretty rigorous. Lastly a few suggestions and comments. Being outgoing and friendly is important in any environment AHS included; that was one of the factors of my own success in my opinion. On the same note I believe that those who write scathing reviews and hate Attleboro are those who are the disruptive and uninvolved students and parents who do not engage themselves in the education process. Finally the school could definitely do with a cosmetic do-over AC and to get rid of a few of the dead-weight teachers. But in all it would be foolish to give less than 5 stars for the educational experience. Thank you. Blue PRIDE

    Excellent school with top-notch caring teachers. Plenty of extra-curricular activities. Students can take graphic design culinary arts and advanced placement courses for college credit.

    This school has been a wonderful experience for my children. We all know at public schools you can't help but accept the students and parents that just don't care about their children or their education; but if you are an involved parent with children who know the importance and seriousness of education this school has an excellent and diverse curriculum that will more than prepare them for college. I have found the teachers administration and coaches to be very involved and really care about their students involvement success and readiness for the next step! Go Big Blue

    This school has performed wonderfully for our children. Of course we are also heavily involved in our children's education which I believe makes a difference.

    Attleboro High School is a PUBLIC school. By that I mean it is what it is. If the student wants to succeed then the programs available to the students are great. The honors program is a rigorous program that pushes the students to the limit. It is intense. If you do not do the honors program you can still take honors and AP classes and get a great education. The college prep courses do a good job and are good for every student. BUT if you would like the push yourself and try to better yourself take honors and AP classes. The teachers are what you make them. If you are kind and respectful they will be back. If you are rude and disrespectful it will reflect. They will always help a student if the student comes to them. Many will ask you to stay if you need help but...

    Okay mediocre school in ratings but it's definitely what you make it. Excellent teachers (care about the students unique teaching styles) and opportunities.

    I like this school even though I'm not a parent they've been teaching me a lot of things I didn't know about

    Hi I am not a parent but I graduated in 2002. Since then I have gone to college and persued a secondary education certification. While attending the school the teachers were all too happy to help me excel in my studies. In fact my 9th grade English teacher stayed after classes every Wednesday so that I could improve my writing skills enough to succeed the next year. If the student showed genuine effort and respect toward the teacher the teacher was extremely helpful. Having studied secondary education I have also realized how hard teaching is. With more and more students in the classroom at once due to economic strain addressing each of their needs becomes harder. The importance of the MCAS has caused teachers to have to squeeze as much information into a year as is possible. The teachers are doing the best they can and they need parent support. --SLF

    My experience with the teachers at this school has been generally good. When I have called with questions regarding my child they have responded in a timely fashion and seem to have a genuine interest in helping us to help our child. I give the guidance dept generally good marks as well as they have been very open to setting up conferences to review my child's performance and discuss how we might help him to improve. However the facility is in need of replacement and there do seem to be problems with unruly groups of kids from time to time- I lay more blame for this problem on the parents of those kids rather than the teachers who seem to be doing the best they can with minimal resources and still deal with the requirements of the MCAS and No Child Left Behind Act.

    I agree with the previous parents. This school is awful. The teacher do not followup with parents questions. There is no order to the school. A parents enter and said good morning and their response is ' Hi '. What example for children coming up in America.

    Attleboro High is awful. If you can send your child to another school do it! Attleboro high needs serious improvement.
