Agua Fria High School Reviews

Agua Fria has a very rich history especially in its tradition. The best time of the school year was in the fall during football season. From the Spirit Stomp to the game there was always something exciting going on. The teachers are always willing to help even if the student wasn't in their class, which is great because it really shows that they love what they do. Many of them had second jobs or evening classes and they would give up the little free-time they had to help out. There were a few downsides like food, admin, and things that would happen around the neighborhood. Overall, it was close-knit community whether you were involved or not.
Review Agua Fria High School
This school is great! Everyone is incredibly accepting and loving of one another. The school is diverse and open to all religions, races, backgrounds and more. Academically, we are strong and ready to learn at all times.
The Teachers at this high school are super supportive and very understanding. They will push you and challenge you, while still understanding when you are struggling with something. The environment their is very diverse and friendly. There is always someone willing to give you a hand when you are having a bad day and find it hard making it through the day. The curriculum is rigorous and challenging but the teachers make it fun to learn. This school also has a lot of history enriched values and treats everyone of importance. I highly recommend from personal experience to look into this great school that has given me the best of memories.
