I'm currently a student at AHS and am going into my senior year. I, personally, have had a great time here! I take mostly AP and honors classes and have found them to be both engaging and challenging, and, for the most part, my teachers have been likable and passionate about their jobs. I've also found a home in the AHS theater department, and that has changed my life. That being said, I know many people who have not had ideal experiences here for a multitude of reasons. I haven't had any bad experiences on a personal level, but I guess it's different for everyone.

Agoura High School is a school in a community where everyone knows each other very well and for a long time. Because I came to this school as a stranger from another country, I had a hard time becoming a part of that community. So far, that is the only con that I have personally faced.
Agoura High school has excellent teachers and staff: everyone is willing to help as long as you show proper respect and follow classroom policies, which I consider to be fair. Many of those teachers are now my mentors and the greatest role models I could have ever asked for. Every one of them has helped me elevate from a person with no experience in an American schools' system, and a minimum knowledge of English, to quite a successful student who is capable of experimenting with learning styles, acing difficult subjects, facing various challenges in academics, and becoming a good team member and a friend.
Agoura High is one of the most beautiful high school campuses I have ever seen. With its luscious green quads and bounties of open space, you'll never be cramming through a hallway to get to your next class. The staff at Agoura is also extremely dedicated to their students. They are always ready to lend a helping hand. I would recommend Agoura to anyone in the area. I even know people from the valley who commute every morning because Agoura is such a great school. We also have the IB program, which harbors some of the best students in the world, and truly prepares them for college. The biggest complaint with Agoura is the academics. For some reason, many of Agoura's students seem to lag behind academically. I can say however that the school is not complacent, and is coming up with new solutions every year to try and fix it. I believe that Agoura is a great high school for any teenager.
