American Indian Public High School Reviews

Throughout my four years at AIPHS, I have experienced varies changes relating to academic studies and school culture. The school started implementing school clubs during my freshman year, but none of them were strictly enforced thus, causing the clubs to disappear from the school. Academic wise, AIPHS only offers AP and Honor courses for the main classes. There is not much of a variety for elective classes. As for college readiness, AIPHS has college counselors, but since they only have so much time, you have to rely on yourself for most of the time while you are applying for college. Succeeding in school and making sure you get what you want is part of the things AIPHS wants their students to learn about being an independent person.

I have been at American Indian Public High School (AIPHS) since the ninth grade. AIPHS is a school that offers many courses that will help prepare the students for college. The teachers work hard to provide the students with a fun school experience, while providing as much information about as they can. AIPHS was a school that was only known for its strict disciplinary system and rigorous academic curriculum. Well now it has a lot more school spirit. More clubs and activities are being formed and offered to all their students. It went from being a school that nobody wanted to go to, to a school that everyone wants to enroll in or transfer to. I can honestly say that it is not like any other high school that you will ever go to. Being a school known great academic achievements, the students still have fun. The staff at AIPHS deeply care about the students education and safety and will do anything to ensure that everything around the school is fine for the students.
My overall experience is best described as a love-hate relationship between my school and me. At times, my fellow students and I would get frustrated by the lack of care the school gives. Sometimes the school might seem to be in chaos and have no structure. On the counterpart, AIPHS would sometimes step up and do amazing things for their students, like take our scholars to watch the Black Panther. My school also finally created their own sports program for the many athletes we have. Some things that might need to be improved are facilities and some teachers. But more or less, for AIPHS to succeed, they need to keep a straight and narrow path until they are seen in a less negative light.
