Over all it was a great experience. The study body was very open-minded and quite diverse. Teachers were always encouraging and pushing students to achieve academic excellence; however, they were never dishonest. There were never any false praises or undeserving grades handed out. There were countless opportunities for students to get involved with the community along a long list of clubs available to join. Sports teams were not rigged... every student had equal opportunity to be part of any sports team they desired as long as they performed well at try-outs. The arts were given just as much importance as academics were. Drama club, band, orchestra, choir, photography, along with many other artistic expressions were encouraged to allow students to express themselves. The school building is full of windows allowing lots of natural light making it easier to have a positive learning environment for all the kids.
Review Alpharetta High School
Alpharetta High School provided me with the best resources to succeed in college. From freshman year to senior year, the faculty and teachers taught me the necessary skills such as note taking and time management so that college would be ever more easy. In junior year, I took AP Computer Science and the class was so great that I decided to make Computer Science my major in college.

If there was one thing that I would change about Alpharetta, it would be the amount of different classes a student can take. An example would be the science department. In Alpharetta, you can take either Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. I found that I do not enjoy any of those, so I would have liked to see other science classes such as astrology, geology, or ecology.
I love the teachers in my school! They adjust their teaching styles based on the learning styles of the student and allow different ways to complete homework and classwork. They are very knowledgeable and never fail to answer relevant questions. I really feel like they actually care about me and all of their students as well, not only as students but in our daily lives too. The teachers all have excellent communication skills, effectively able to lecture a class in an engaging and fun way. They are very consistent in the way they each grade as well, so no one is surprised by the standards for each assignment.
