Great school! Teachers are focused in helping students reach their goals and graduate. Parents should be more involved with their student since its their last years and students really would need their support.

My high school experience was good! The teachers at my school try their best to be there for every student. I would highly recommend anyone that's in high school to attend Academy high school because it's a very welcoming environment! The teachers actually care about you and want to see you successful. They never give up on you.
The extracurricular opportunities at this school are great. I know there is people who have joined band, orchestra and choir. Students have made up their own organization of Athletic Religious community. This is an organization where students who are athletes get together in the morning and do homework and sometimes talk about their different beliefs. This helps students speak their minds and get help with their homework. There is also an organization which is called "Lab" after school there is different teachers of different subjects who get together, have snacks and welcome students who need extra help in which ever subject.
