Air academy has great academics and many opportunities to be involved in around school. The teachers are great and typically always work with me and my busy schedule. Every now and then there are some difficult complications with teachers who do not understand certain circumstances, but a majority of the time teachers are great. The most annoying thing about the school is the commute and the student parking lot!

Air Academy is absolutely the best school in Colorado Springs. Located on the United States Air Force Academy, Air Academy has a safe, friendly, and welcoming environment that fosters academic as well as emotional and maturational growth in students. The staff at AAHS provide an excellent education to all students. Whether your student is accelerated, average, or struggling the faculty, staff, and administration will make every effort to provide your student the help they need to succeed.
Within my time at Air Academy I have felt that the students,teachers,administrators, and atmosphere have been positive and have made it a great high school experience. The teachers make it very clear that they are there to help and support us in anyway needed. The administration make it a point to get to know every student and make everyone feel included and want to get involved. The school as a whole is friendly and inclusive to all types of students with offering a wide variety of clubs and sports to get involved in. Overall I have been beyond grateful to spend my High School career here.
