I am excited about the 2017-2018 school year. Anderson High School accomplished many great things during the 2016-2017 campaign. AHS had two National Merit Scholars. The Class of 2017 earned over $6.2 million dollars in scholarship money. We are expecting the graduation rate for the Class of 2017 to be around 92% or higher. We also achieved a 94.8% graduation rate for the Class of 2016 and achieved a 53.3% College and Career Readniess rate for the Class of 2016. The AHS Calculus II Team placed 3rd nationally in the Clemson University Calculus II Challenege. Both the Marching Highlander Band and Show Choir had outstanding seasons.
As we continue Striving for Excellence at Anderson High School, I know we are going to accomplish even greater things this year. I know that we care about all of the students in this great city and beyond. As we work together as a team, we will make sure we continue to offer students the best possible education at the high school and the career center. You all have my commitment that our administrative team will be here to help and support you. Remember, our vision is simple: 95-25-95. For those of you who are new to us, that means 95% attendance rate, 25% of our students enrolled in college and career level classes, and 95% graduation rate.Thank you,
