Ambridge Area High School Reviews
As in most schools, the junior year is the worst year for workload. I took three AP classes, a college chemistry class, and a relatively hard math class. My days after school were filled with homework. This year (my senior year) I'm taking two AP classes (that are both twice as long as a normal class), four music classes (two being independent study), and the highest level (yet still relatively easy) social studies and communications courses. My senior year is much easier than my junior year, so the workload isn't consistent throughout all four years of high school.
Ambridge Area High School is the most involved school I have ever gone to. The MCJROTC program is a blast. It taught me self confidence, how to teach my own class, public speaking, respect and moral values to take with me for the rest of my life. I am a Hopewell senior High student technically, but I have gone to Ambridge 'full day' for MCJROTC, and MCJROTC Leadership Academy. Leadership Academy is when we make the planning of events and the ROTC decisions. Students from all over Beaver County come to Ambridge for ROTC from over 12 different schools. After school we have Kurt Angle Ultimate Transformation (weight lifting/ fitness training), PT team (physical trainning for the military standards), Step Team (fancy drill), Drill Team (regular competitive drill), Armed Drill Squad( drill with rifles). Colorguard is a "team' all in itself where those who obtain their blues meet congressmen and do flag ceremonies all throughout the county. Even one in Niagara Falls and funerals to graduatuons all over Beaver county and Allegheny County. I personally love Ambridge because of all of the opportunities it has given me.
The student sections at the games are great. The football student section would always have themes, such as USA, Hawaiian, and camo. The boys soccer team would always come to the girls soccer games and be so supportive and hilarious!
