I love and respect my Affton High School Teachers! All of them are rich with knowledge and always try to give this to their students. They not only help and educate their students in class, but also outside of class, like before or after school. They are always available through email, and whenever we need help or have questions we know that we will get response if we just email them, even if it's during the weekends or breaks. I love how our teachers talk and bring in lessons about their life and little everyday "soap-boxes" to make sure we are not only educated, but also have knowledge that will help us to find our place in life. I am so grateful to have my teachers and to be part of Affton High School.
I like our small school environment, with just about 25 students in each class it's very easy to make personal connection with teachers and staff. The staff works to create a learning environment where a majority students feel as though they can succeed.
