Alpharetta High School Reviews

Alpharetta High School is a fairly good school. It is a top 300 public high school according to the US News. Academics are very challenging and prepares us students very well for college. Most teachers truly care about the students’ future and tries their all in getting to know the students as people as well and not just a student through engagement by conversations. The only area Alpharetta High School could see improvements is by improving the extracurricular systems. The parents dedicate a lot of their money and time to have the best extracurricular environment for students to engage in. However, if the school could invest more towards students’ extracurricular activities aside from the parents, it would be even better. Overall, Alpharetta High School is an excellent school and I feel well-prepared for college after receiving education from here.

Overall, I believe Alpharetta High School is a great school, and it undoubtedly has rigorous courses intended to prepare you for college. The food is alright some times, but usually tastes bad, has very small portions, and the occasional spoiled milk. Our school spirit isn't the best and is usually the source of many jokes on campus, however, it isn't that unusual for high schools. There are many quality teachers who genuinely care about their students at this school that creates a very friendly environment. The school administration is pretty average, but makes some poor decision with bad weather conditions and off campus privileges for seniors/juniors.
Alpharetta High School is a really good school. The school provides the best education and it gives people an opportunity to get involved into clubs like FBLA, HOSA, etc. Alpharetta High School is one step ahead in safety. People have to enter the building with an ID card that they receive so that strangers won't be able to enter the building. The school provides excellent resources in which students can apply for scholarships or they can prepare for SAT. Student in this school are disciplined and they work hard to achieve their goals.
