In my freshman, sophomore, and junior year I was a part of the the American Fork High-School Marching Band. The band has been a part of a great legacy of excellence for over 25 years. While I was apart of the Marching band I had the amazing opportunities to travel great places and succeed high quality achievements. Those achievements include: Traveling to Grand- Nationals where we performed in semi-finals, taking around 17th place in the nation. Performed in the 2014 Thanksgiving Macy’s Day Parade. And Thanksgiving Point Dome performance. This does not including 100’s of hours of practicing and the preparation required for the 11-15 performances each year. In the year 2015 I had a job on top of band and school which helped me realize the importance of being organized. This school has created a great environment to learn and be happy!

I loved being able to attend school at American Fork High! The faculty are wonderful people who are interested in helping their students achieve success. The student body as a whole is unified and desires to make their high school experience enjoyable for all. Not only did I learn the necessary school materials during my high school years, I also learned how to be a great member of my school and community. This high school provided many opportunities to be involved in different clubs, classes, social events, and sports teams.
American Fork High School is totally awesome! There is a kind atmosphere, everyone cares, and school spirit is high! We have excellent staff and teachers that genuinely care, plenty of extra-circular activities for everyone, and plenty of school-wide events that require a lot of student help. AFHS has a wonderful marching band, football team, girls soccer team, and more! We're all for the sports while equally being awesome in academics and manners!
