American Senior High School Reviews

American senior high school is a wonderful school. They care about students, they make sure students get the education needed. I was apart of American's Student Council as well I was a cheerleader. American is very active with their students and the staff tries hard to ensure that students are okay physically and mentally. My experience might be different compared to others. I enjoyed my experience not only because I interacted with everyone. American is a very diverse school and they have many students from everywhere.

Over all, american is a good, average school. The school has great school spirit, but it’s definitely a work in progress. As for the education, I do believe we could be offered more AP courses as of now we only have two. But as for resources and faculty, they make your high school experience much easier. We have great counselors who are there for you, a cap advisor who truly wants everyone to go to college and is there to help every step of the way, and a new principle who is determined to change the school for the better.
I am currently a junior at American Senior High School, my experience here has been quit a journey. I am a student athlete who does both cheer and track. As a athletic I do not believe that the teachers and staff are helping the students become more college bound especially for a student like myself who cares more about my academics. Throughout my 3 years here I have experience both high and lows when it comes to maintaining my grade average. I believe that I could have been at least at a 3.3 if I had more active teachers and staff involved. Overall I would say that American Senior High is average and may be different if you focus more on your school work without be involved in athletics.
