American Senior High School is a excellent school. It gives the students many opportunities and have an outstanding faculty . It has different program that benefits the students in many ways such as the law program, medical program or Cambridge program . The Cambridge program is a great program that allow the students to take their college courses early. The school also provide dual enrollment.
This school provides the students with information and assistance to plan for their future. The school is very hard on academics. Every student has a future for themselves; the school has something for every student. For example, they have JROTC for students interested in going to United States Armed Forces. The school offer clubs that are strong for Women empowerment such as Women of Tomorrow. For boys, they offer 5000 Role Models. In this school everyone is here for each other. There's no students nor faculty on their own.
American is a extraordinary for EVERYONE.

American as a whole did the bare minimum students and sometimes below the bare minimum. They fail to focus on the more important things that are needed to properly prepare its students for college. The schools and administrations lacks communication with the student body and has poor time management dealing with requirements needed for graduation or college. The sanitary conditions of the school were a nightmare. Children should not have to share their place of education with rodents, the school should have discretely handled this. American cuts certain grade levels short in a sense to satisfy the senior class. This involves taking money from one class' budget in order to pay for senior activities, which in turn results in underclassmen being under budget and create a chain reaction that grows into a larger issue. This school, the faculty and staff, and the students enrolled have no sense of consideration for their surroundings. I would not recommend this school to anyone I care for.
As my high school life is coming to an end, I can say that overall, I have had a great high school experience. In American Senior High, I have learned great things and have succeeded. It is full of diversity as well as different sports, clubs, activities, and resources to guide you throughout your experience. The CAP advisor is great help when it comes to college readiness. The grade counselors are also great when it comes to fixing schedules, advice on other classes, etc.
