Alpharetta High School has been a great experience. The school has a vast number of different cultures and ethnicity which makes it a more inclusive environment. There are many extra curricular activities, such as sports, clubs, and other activities to choose from. The teachers are very easy to talk to and allow the students to be engaged in the classroom. The theater department also host several numbers throughout the year which are very entertaining. The grounds are kept clean and even the security officers are really nice. There is plenty of student parking which is often an issue at other schools. It’s definitely a top school in the North Fulton County area.

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.
It's a great school with lots of inclusion and diversity which makes having friends a little easier, their transition into classes from other districts could be better. Some teachers need to be taught a little better about how to handle situations with students, and administrators need to sink more to the student level in order to create an environment where the students don't feel so intimidated by them for no reason. There needs to be more down time for students in order to keep kids from feeling so enclosed, which I have experienced first hand causes anxiety throughout the student population. Though, that could be said about many schools. Great school overall, enjoyed the opportunities and the people that I met when moving to the district from out of state.
