  • The school has bad judgment. When I attended the school, many classes were cut due to budgeting. However, the school happened to have enough money to remake the track field and such for sports. The liaisons are poorly picked out as well. They get caught up in being high school and acting as such. It isn't much different from having a big high school student roaming around rather than providing security. I attended many schools before this and must say that this school does not live up to the rumors. It felt as though the standards of education sunk the moment i swapped schools to this. It was something like going back to middle school, which made me personally lose my ambition. The school looks nice because of the bounty of trees though.

  • Atwater High is the best school i have ever gone to and i wish i was there now. I wanted to be one of the lucky students to graduate from Atwater but i moved.
    I wish everyone the best.
