Airline High School Reviews

I absolutely loved being a student at Airline High School and I am even prouder to call myself a viking alumni now, When I was in middle school, I do not feel as if my school spirit was as great as it was when I was in high school. Throughout all of my years of schooling, I was anxious to begin attending Airline. I was so excite to go to that school. The positive atmosphere, supporting staff, and extracurricular activities gave me a great experience. The classes I took helped to prepare me for extending my education. Each course I took challenged me in different ways each day, and I am beyond grateful for that. Since I was involved with so many programs at the school, it encouraged me to bond even more with the people around me. The loyalty, devotion, and support I have for the school will always be there.I have always said that Airline is one of the best high schools on a national scale and I still hold that same belief today.

Airline High School completely pushes you out of your shell and prepares you for the real world. School involvement is stressed at Airline because it enables students to figure out who they truly are, while meeting new people and participating in a fun activity. The amount of clubs, and sports at Airline can interest almost every student. For example, there is an Anime club, a bowling team, student council, choir, etc.. I am involved in the Freshmen Mentoring program, AHS tennis team, National Honor Society, BETA club, Drama club, FBLA, Askalada Newspaper staff, and Blue Angel Dance line Chaplin. Being involved has made my overall time at Airline, an unforgettable experience. Not only are there a ton of ways to be involved, there is also a constant drive for academic improvement. Airline High School is a great school and I am proud to call myself a Viking.
My time at Airline has been full of valuable life lessons and exciting memories! The school offers clubs that appeal to students with a large variety of interests and classes that give students the opportunity to learn at a pace that suits them and their individual goals. There is never a boring week at Airline, with athletic events, trivia nights, drama performances, and more occurring on a regular basis! My experiences at Airline have truly prepared me for my future and I wouldn't want to spend my high school years anywhere else.
