American Senior High School Reviews

This school offered an amazing opportunity for me to study aviation as a high school student at George T. Baker Aviation, also known as "Baker". As a female in the mechanical engineering field, it can be sometimes difficult to maintain focus on this industry since many male students can be discouraging. Yet, through the help and advice of the teachers at American Senior High, they would always help me stay true to my dream and career. The reason I rate 4 stars for my high school is that as an aviation student they never rewarded my academy in ceremonies. The students in my academy were rarely recognized for our accomplishments. Only through baker was I able to receive highly respected awards and certificates, even if it was for participation.

My overall experience with American Senior High, is that is a great learning experience. We have an excellent sports program , also we have excellent magnet programs, which I am in the Biomedical program. Our band and auxiliary are magnificent. The teaching staff and administration are wonderful, my teachers help me to become a better student and also a better person by just by setting examples for me,and giving me challenges so that I'm able to succeed in the future. They also help me by encouraging me to further my education and attend an university. My overall social experience at American was good, I have great friends, we all push each to be the best we can be. Everyone is friendly, and joyful at American Senior High. Even though there were a few bumps and bruises here there, I've learned from my mistakes, saw what i did wrong, and I did the absolute most to fix it. So if I had to give my overall experience with American Senior High a grade, it would be a A-.
Honestly , the overall atmosphere and vibe that the instructors , as well as the students give off, is what I like most about American. This being my senior and fourth year at American , it's the humorous personalities of the teachers and fellow classmates that keep me excited about coming to school each morning. Not only do the teachers incorporate humor into their teachings but , their life-lessons that they share regarding their good and bad decisions help many students to avoid wasting their potential and ending up down the wrong path. The only downsides that I can think of are the cafeteria food ( which I think all public high school students complain about ) , the endless tries by the administration to try and take our money by making us pay for every little thing , and the dress code policies.
