Air Academy has incredible teachers. Majority of the teachers are extremely kind, understanding and helpful. All of the teachers want students to succeed, no matter what type of student you are. AAHS is dedicated to helping students succeed and thrive in life. The sports teams are also wonderful! They may not be the best, but AAHS knows how to kick up the moral of the team when a game goes sour. Students are super nice and welcoming. they also have a program called LINK Crew that helps with welcoming new students and helping them feel like they are home.

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!
Let's be honest: 1 to 10 with 10 being excellent
Academics: 8
Sports: 8 (Marching band, soccer, and cross country is great. Cheerleading, football, and most of the other sports suck. Beware, if you're trying out for any varsity position, make sure you're really good because most of the coaches for the sports are from one big dominating family and they want their kids to play, even if they suck).
Teachers: 7 (The majority of teachers that I had were great).
Food: 2 (Absolutely horrible, had to bring my own lunch).
Diversity: 5 (Mainly consists of white privileged kids).
Music and arts: 10
Clubs and activities: 8
People: 6 (There's three groups- stuck up rich kids, kids that have to be there because their parents put them there (me), and weird outsiders).
I didn't really enjoy AAHS, but it was okay.
