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.

The North Ronaldsay or Orkney is a breed of domestic sheep from North Ronaldsay, the northernmost island of Orkney, off the north coast of Scotland. It belongs to the Northern European short-tailed sheep group of breeds, and has evolved without much cross-breeding with modern breeds. It is a smaller sheep than most, with the rams (males) horned and ewes (females) mostly hornless. It was formerly kept primarily for wool, but now the two largest flocks are feral, one on North Ronaldsay and another on the Orkney island of Linga Holm. The Rare Breeds Survival Trust lists the breed as "vulnerable", with fewer than 600 registered breeding females in the United Kingdom.
I think Alpharetta is a wonderful public school. They offer tons of AP classes and opportunities for dual enrollment with nearby colleges. I was also able to do an internship with a local veterinarian and this counted as one of my class credits for graduating, which I think is an awesome program to provide for students. I learned all about how to build a resume, write a cover letter, make connections, and do well in interviews. I also learned that being a veterinarian was definitely the career path I wanted to pursue and was able to get some great experience and a good future recommendation. However, when I was there, there were a lot of very strict rules put in place by the principal that I found unnecessary; for example, we could get detention just for using our phones in the hallways between classes. We also weren't allowed to walk around the school or eat anywhere other than the cafeteria during our lunch break.
