Pretty cool school! I enjoy my time here. The theater department is amazing, nationally acclaimed, and award-winning. The academics are highly praised, and there are endless opportunities. Students hate on Amity so much, but I'm pretty sure it's just because they're depressed and overly negative. So really, the students can sour the experience- but there''s over a thousand of us, so it won't happen every day! A lot of kids vape or smoke weed, but it''s lessening considerably. There are a lot of amazing teachers, a lot of subpar ones, and a few (or more than a few) bad apples. Overall, Amity can be fun if you let it be. Don't be a little baby man and try to make it sound worse than it is- just make the best of your time there, and don't get caught up in negativity!

Large majority of students are stoners, Administration is rude, and random bag searches happen all the time if you are suspected of anything by the administration. There is also excessive vaping at amity and racism and antisemitism so I don't recommend it AT ALL.
