American Canyon High School Reviews

ACHS has a beautiful campus and an extensive staff available to assist students. The diversity on campus is incredible and there's a vast amount of different curriculum choices for students to select from, but I would say that the most desirable aspect of offered courses are the electives! There are many to choose from, and all encourage student indivuduality. On campus, students are leaders -- from ASB/Leadership to a normal classroom setting, teenagers will find themselves with a lot of independence and power over their learning. College readiness is stressed, but not integrated into curriculum or heavily touched upon. It is more of something that is mentioned over and over but not exactly implemented into student learning programs and courses.

Coming to high school I was very scared that I wouldn't find a place to fit in, but ACHS welcomed me with open arms. Everyone has a place they belong and everyone is very accepting. My experience at ACHS has been amazing. I love my school and the spirit of the Wolfpack. The administration has changed recently and I'm still trying to figure out if I like it. But overall this is a great school, with a beautiful campus and great school culture!
American Canyon High School is probably one of the most diverse schools in the Napa County. From a verity of cultures and heritages, to personalities, ACHS never fails to amaze me. Many students may complain that it's boring here, but no where else is like here. The relationship that the students build among each other or the connection with their teachers is phenomenal. Since American Canyon is such a small city where everyone essentially knows everyone, we all care for one another. The mascot of the school may be a wolf, but we truly show how we are a pack while demonstrating that we feed only good wolves.
