Great school in a great neighborhood! High quality public education in a safe and clean environment. Lots of great extra-curricular options included state champion athletics and a stellar, nationally recognized music and Marching Band program. Overall a very well rounded school.
Review American Fork High School
This school is amazing! American Fork High School is known for their marching band which I am proud to be apart of! Teachers expect their students to learn but, the teachers are easy to get along with and making learning easier. It feels like teachers are hand-selected not chosen for the highest degree. Amazing!
I love American Fork! I wouldn't change where I went. The overall atmosphere was outstanding. My only personal complaint was the cliques and how hard it was to get into a group of friends. However, that is all personal and everyone will have a different experience. The staff and teachers are excellent and care about their students and their success. The school involves its students and really tries to rally up school spirit, something I loved about American Fork. Overall, you can't go wrong in choosing American Fork High School.
