My experience at Agoura High School was amazing. From doing dance, to water polo, to starting my own two clubs. When events are set up, it's usually run by the students, so it gives us the skills of event planning, as well as being able to communicate with others. Everyone, also, supports each other 100%. Another thing that was an amazing experience was the diversity it holds. The school held the first annual "Culture Fair." It was interesting to eat all the different foods, taste the different spices, and learn about the different cultures. And one of my favorite thing that was recently put up was the "Kindness Wall." Students are able to write what makes them happy or simply give another person a compliment. Ever since Freshman year, Agoura High has really stepped up their game in making everyone feel welcomed, and they will continue to do so. I wouldn't change anything that AHS has done.

Very good atmosphere. Student body is welcoming and friendly. We have many successful student-led events. We have been described as "laid back" which is true in some respects. It's true that we do not have a culture of "strongly encouraging" students to take honor, AP, or other higher level classes. However, that is not to say that academics are a weak point. The vast majority of teachers care about their subjects and care about trying to teach effectively and understandably.
I loved my experience at Agoura High! The teachers were always so supportive of my academics and athletics. I made friends there that I am sure will last a lifetime. Of course, college put some distance in our friendships but we always make the time to continue our unique bond.
