I am proud to be a Caveman! On my first day of sophomore year I was a little bit overwhelmed, but the friendly atmosphere helped me feel comfortable to try my hardest. My path wasn't always easy. I chose to take difficult classes to prepare me for the real word. American Fork High School even provided me the opportunity to obtain a dental assisting certificate along with my High School diploma. This will allow me to work in a professional environment as i leave high school and begin my college experience. I loved every aspect of my high school experience, but the thing that I've appreciated the most is the jump start it has given me into my upcoming higher education. I find myself leaving my high school experience with gratitude for what I've learned and confidence for the future.

Overall, American Fork High School is a very good school! I feel very safe at school which is very important with the uprise of school shootings! I also feel like we have a physically nice school and it’s very well kept! There isn’t much I would change about the school but one thing I wish this school had is a nice, big auditorium. Being in the choir, I know how overflowed our current auditorium gets during performances and it’s very hard for people to find seats so I believe we would get better attendance to afterschool performances if we had an auditorium that could fit more people.
Overall a great school. I was a student throughout high school years (10-12) and don't have any experience with other high schools, but these ratings represent my feelings on needs for improvement. I definitely think the culture of the student body is lacking and could use some diversity of thought. Utah is very full of cliques because too many people are exactly the same. We need some different people with some willingness to bring new ideas to the table. Also, this is not a school where the student council or body rules everything, they just set up a few events and dances and that's all. I definitely think the school and the Alpine School District could change some policies to allow students more governance in school life, within reason. The faculty are fantastic overall, respectful, great to work with, and there are new facilities as well as renovations being made to older parts of the school. Not a bad place to spend the high school years!
