I enjoy the fact that the school provides a vast amount of opportunities to explore the medical field through classes, clubs, and even assemblies. It is a fantastic school for incoming high school students who see themselves pursuing a medical career.
I liked the environment in which everyone wanted to learn and further their education. You really feel pushed to do your best academically and they want you to strive to be your best. The administration is very understandable and easy to talk to even if one does have trouble handling the heavy workload and ensure each person is able to succeed. The main things I would change is the cafeteria food and possibly adding a sports team. it can sometimes be a struggle if you play sports since you must play for your home town and may miss class to do so. Apart from this, there is not too much to complain about if you are willing to work.
very hard to get in, very hard to stay in as it is extremely competitive. to say the least, one will be prepared for the best colleges when you graduate high school.
Professional staff who find a good balance between intervention and letting you find the solutions on your own. Amazing campus. Intramural sporting activities. You have to go back to your local township high school for varsity level sports.

The school had a very tough curriculum, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the Health Sciences. Personally, I believe I had an OK experience. There's no GPA scale, however, and the school uses an unweighted average, which may hurt you when you apply to colleges.
Other than the students (they are awkward but nice), everything here is great! The academics are rigorous and challenging, and you can tell every student cares deeply about their grades. However, only come here if you have a strong interest in the medical field that you want to stick with; your time will be miserable if you are not interested.
I love being challenged everyday and learning about many aspects of the health profession. This school helped me decide to pursue the health sciences and I love it. The only thing I would like to see changed is for there to be more non-academic activities for students.
Choosing to attend AAHS is the best decision I have ever made. As a senior, I have grown to be close friends with students from Rahway, Clark, Cranford, and Roselle Park, just to name a few. These are superlative people who I otherwise would never have the opportunity to meet. My experience at Allied Health has been wonderful thanks to my classmates and the extraordinary faculty and administration. The principal, the guidance counselors, and the teachers are all passionate about seeing the students thrive here. They are invested in our success.

The Academy for Allied Health Sciences has offered me tremendous opportunities to explore the different avenues available in health care and understand the future of medicine.
As a rising senior, I can say that these past three years at Allied have certainly been memorable. Vigorous and challenging, but manageable if you put in the time and effort to understand what is being taught. This school prepares all its students from freshman year and onward for the health care profession by providing a unique, in-depth foundation. The school does not lack in diversity, but is still predominantly white - if that is an issue for anyone. There aren't many areas for change except trivial matters such as the food. Overall, a fantastic school that should not harbor any feelings of regret for attending.
My experience at the Academy for Allied Health Sciences has been rewarding and one that I know has prepared me for the next four years of my life beyond its doors. With top notch academics, rigorous courses and top of the line teachers and administration, it is no wonder why alumni return and express upon current students how prepared they were for the work load and rigor that college students face. In addition to academics, Allied Health and the rest of the schools on its campus are home to many active clubs and activities, specifically including the Student Movement Against Cancer and Multicultural Club, which displays our school's diversity and drive toward helping others, and also encourages a multitude of parent involvement. Back in the classroom, students have access to many resources and are never a step behind in innovations in technology. Besides our average cafeteria food, Allied Health is an extraordinary, safe, diverse and academically challenging place to go to school.
Best high school ever. It is filled with motivated students and helpful teachers. The school environment was great. I was part of the class of 2016 where we had less than 70 students. It is a small school vibe in a large UCVTS community. This school is very rigorous and you have to be motivated.
There is no peer pressure. People will become friends with you, and will accept you. I have never seen anyone isolated. There's not too much racial diversity, but everyone gets along just fine. People with different sexual orientations are accepted just the same. We have a very liberal campus. Not too many people bully, it happens on occasion, and its never anything serious, usually the people who do it, learn from it and feel horrible afterwards. Everyone here is accepting of one another.
You can take graduate level math here (not undergraduate...graduate!). It goes from combined algebra, to geometry/trigonometry, precalculus, AP Calculus I A/B, AP Calculus II B/C, Multivariable Caclulus, Linear Algebra, Linear Programming, and it even goes beyond that to some statistical type of math. They also offer AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Statistics, AP Macro/Micro Economics, AP Physics Mechanics, AP Physics Electricity and Magnetism, AP Literature. They also have an immense amount of options for non AP courses.
The nurse here is really nice. We also have an EMT program, if anything were to happen, it seems like the right place to be. If the EMTs are not here, all of the gym teachers are CPR and First Aid Certified as well as many other teachers (one of the fitness teachers here also volunteers as an EKG specialist). They have training sessions for all of the teachers to sit in on lectures for CPR and everything. The safety here is incredible. There have been heart attack incidents, a student was once run-over, and everything was coordinated perfectly, from the student's cooperation in lock downs to the calling 911 (by the way, there is a building right next to ours where they train police officers), to the cpr certified gym teachers running with AED's toward the injured student. It really is the safest school to choose.
Because this is a school specific to the allied health sciences, HOSA (health occupations students of america) is huge here as well as SMAC(student movement against cancer)/relay for life. However, there are still other options unrelated to the health field. There is math league (which participates in several competitions). There is science olympiad, intramurals, National Honor Society, National Spanish Honor Society, chess club (participates in various competitions), robotics, etc, there are so many options.
Mostly everyone at this school is kind, intelligent, and interesting. Everyone has their own talents and strengths. Even though many people are great and want to achieve many things, it does not create a competitive environment like many would expect. The quality that stands out the most about this school is that EVERYONE helps each other, even if they are not close friends. Its almost as if the difficulty of the high school has brought people close together. Everyone learns how to work together and organize the most fun school events and fundraisers. I would go to this school and do it all over, just for the fun of it. The people here are great and I remember great times when I think about the school.

The amount of work you are given, on the other hand, makes one want to lock himself in a room and study all day long, everyday. After freshman year, mostly everyone gets the hang of the workload and learns how to study efficiently with actual free time on their hands.
The teachers are really great at explaining things. On rare occasions, if a student feels that he is not learning, it is most likely because the student does not ask any questions or for any help. However, the teachers here are excellent and are always willing to take a step back and clarify anything a student might be having trouble with. Also, many teachers are involved with extracurricular activities and encourage students to participate as they help with the learning experience.

Many of the teachers here care about the students a lot. For the most part, fair exams are given and it is usually never the teacher's fault if a student falls behind (the courses here are pretty difficult). They also speak to the students and give great advice on how to study. The teachers really get to know the students here. They learn everyone's name, and know who everyone is, as well as what they do and what they aspire to be.
Plenty of opportunities to choose from!

The teachers are devoted to making students succeed.
Probably the safest and cleanest
I wish there was more.. Since commuting can be difficult, staying after school is limited for many people
