What is a typical Atherton High School student like? Describe the type of person who should attend Atherton High School.


Anonymous, Student, Atherton High School, Class of 2016

The great thing about Atherton High School is there is no "typical student." As a student, it makes me proud to go to a school with a very diverse student body. Students range from being at the top of the class and taking the most challenging courses to students who struggle and aren't able to take the challenging classes. However, if I had to describe a typical student at Atherton it's a person who's not afraid to take risks and they always set goals to be reached. The type of person that should attend Atherton is someone who isn't afraid to let their walls down and someone who is willing to challenge themselves in the classroom while being involved within the school community. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what type of student you are because there's always a place for anyone at Atherton. Our school is very "cliche-less" that you don't have to be a certain person or act a certain way to fit in. There's something at Atherton for everyone.
