The students, teachers, administration are so nice and helpful! Even the custodial workers and lunch ladies. Some students don't respect them, but I do. One thing I wish to see change is the access to our cellphones and being able to wear any color outerwear. I feel that it doesn't matter how we look at school. As long as we are there getting the education that we need.

I’m very confident that it is the best school in the area, but that certainly doesn’t qualify it as a great school, it’s average on most fronts and below par on others. The new buildings give the school an elevated appearance but once you enter the school and are introduced to the student body, that shiny glimmer quickly fades. A large amount of the student body proudly boasts the capacity to behave like animals, and some of the administration seem to have no management skills whatsoever. The teachers seem to be fairy evenly divided with some of them being the best instructors one could ask for, and the others simply being there because they have to. The school really excels, however, in its advanced education opprotunities where many honors and AP courses are offered to students. The teachers of these courses tend to be much more engaged and the class environments are far better.
Airline serve a wonderful opportunity for people willing to learn. Their academics are highly preform on state testing. Resources are easily accepted and controlled among students. Positivity is shown every time whether or not in skills or behavior. I love the fact that Mr. Rowland gets involved with all his students and push them to accomplish many things. The things I like about Airline the most was that it played a great role in my life lessons and helped me mature a lot, along with the great diversity among all the students and important opportunities along the way since my freshman year. Airline is like a second home. Teachers help you get through the school year and wants to see you succed, like a parent would. Everyone is extremly helpful and wants the best for you. I can say that i get the opporunity to graduate from here. Once a viking, always a viking. Class of '19.
