I love the involvement at my high school. We always see attendance at school events and activities because students genuinely love being apart of it all! I love how clean the school is always kept and how we are constantly renovating and making improvements. I genuinely love the student body and how inclusive everyone is. Although their are separate friend groups, I hardly see and cliques at my high school and everyone is friendly to one another. I am so proud to be a caveman (that's our mascot) and I would recommend my school to anyone and everyone.

American Fork High School has more school spirit than any other high school you could possibly encounter. They value the arts and have phenomenal foreign language, band, cross country running, theater, and other programs. I honestly never witnessed open displays of bullying throughout my entire education there! No fights. American Fork is fun and very effective.
I love American Fork High School! When people tell you it's different it true is! Everyone here is P.R.O.U.D. to be a Caveman! You can really feel it. Everyone also is just over all great to be around, stellar teachers and students! You can't get better than American Fork! I loved and love all my time here. I have never felt like I was ever truly a helpful part of something until I came here. I know and feel that I make a difference. I can help other studentsand make a good change in their lives. The people here help me to be my best. I have never had more friends then here, you can just tell that there is a bond between everyone just because we are all Cavemen here. We all care.
