American Canyon High School is a beautiful campus! The vibrant school culture really embraces every single student making them feel more welcome and involved. ACHS is a New Tech School which means we are a strict technology school. The school does a great job of incorporating PBL and technology. Through projects, students learn valuable tech-savvy skills. Powerpoints/slideshows, videos, websites, and even playlists are all examples of outlets used to present information to the class. Although students do not get a lot of lessons, they learn the importance of research and executing the perfect project. #GoWolves!

What I loved about American Canyon High School was what am emphasis they put on preparing the students for getting a job! I am an alumna and they made the students do unending amounts of projects but it allowed for me to be a more confident individual. It helped me with public speaking and knowing how to present myself upon meeting my employer. It gave me the experience of editing videos, conducting interviews, and intensive research which prepared me for college. I wish they would have focused more on getting the students ready for college applications. They could have let students how important extracurriculars and test scores were to colleges.
I like that American Canyon High School is involved with many aspects of our community. Such as Saturday beautification days, where students volunteer to walk around the city and clean up. We also participate in 5k runs, such as passing out water or goodie bags. As for the school experience, I like how they make you feel welcomed and try to include all students in activities that can bring us all together. Our school is very spirited and takes pride into being a community. The educational experience is also very good because we are a project based learning school. We often work in groups which teaches us life lessons such as communication, work ethic, and self-discipline. There are also many classes that can prepare us for our future, such as the Career Readiness class that teaches students about taxes, bills, etc.
