I think the sense of community at this school is pretty strong. It has a lot of diversity; not just one race or ethnic group dominates the population. I would choose to go to this school again if I had to do it all over simply because of the teachers and the diversity.

The best and worst part about Athens drive is its diversity. I love going to a school that is not homogeneous because the world we live in is not homogeneous. However, with so much variety in socioeconomic class at Athens you have the a large variety in the parenting style which translates through its students. Some higher socioeconomic parents are very involved in Athens coming to all athletic and academic events. You also have students whose parents seem too busy to be bothered with their child's education. Failing a academic class, or the lowest level course, is unacceptable yet students fail all the time. I know this is not Athens fault but teachers should reach out to students like this. Students should have many opportunities to get involved in school and show how failing just one class effects your life and likelihood of getting into college.

It was great four years. I learned so much and helped me through my struggles. I made long lasting friends and worked hard for the good grades.
