Alpharetta High School has provided so a wide range of wonderful opportunities both with academics and extracurriculars. The staff and teachers are helpful, caring, and kind towards their students. They put the needs of the students first before anything else. I loved sending my child there everyday!

A good school for a specific person. Kids who are interested in STEM will find lots of support and well-funded classes and activities geared to their interests. However, it is not a great school for kids interested in liberal arts. Students are pushed by administration towards STEM fields, other students often belittle those who are interest in arts and humanities, and many activities and classes related to those subjects don't receive necessary attention or funding from the school and administration. In addition, there is a very competitive academic environment. For some kids, this is great. But if your child is someone who likes to do things because they enjoy them and want to savor learning and experiences, this is not the place for them. There is very much a do-it-for-the-college-apps mindset here, and there is little done by administration to solve it and make a place for students who don't fit with this environment.
Alpharetta High School is an excellent high school in my experience. The students are kind and helpful, and most of the teachers are caring and funny. As having another language for home language, the teachers and students helped me a lot either on the way of studying and life. I love the school!
