Good for academics and has some (but not all) passionate teachers. The facilities are good, there is sometimes a lack of restrooms available. Great school spirit and spirit days are extremely enjoyable. Students know how to have fun but also focus on studying. Amazing Librarians. Terrible for food and counselor resources(counselors won't help at all, rude, are not familiar with students), the librarians do so much more and are extremely helpful!

American High School is a great school for diversity and school spirit, bringing a welcoming environment. The students are involved in bringing the school recognition and love to interact with activities such as spirit week and club week to bring awareness in their activities. The school has a well structured academic system, allowing students to apply their knowledge in practical situations and also be ready for future structured learning environments. It embraces diversity, and allows students to choose what fields they may want to pursue in the future from coursework they learn from during their time at the school.
The best part about American High is the school spirit. It always seems like the entire school gets involved with our Spirit Weeks and other annual events, and the vast majority of students do it purely out of love for the school, so you feel very welcomed and apart of the school even if you're just a typical student without any high office position. One thing I would change would be the bathroom maintenance because there always seems to be a new surprise every week, whether it be entire toilet rolls being stuffed down the toilet or a bathroom stall being ripped from the wall.
