Americas High School offers a fantastic academic experience by featuring many Advanced Placement, Dual Credit, and Pre-AP classes. The teachers of both the advanced and non-advanced classes take great pride in their work by making sure that the student has every opportunity to succeed. Teachers are enthusiastic about their work and never give up despite any obstacles the students may face. As a result, this view of school has spread to many of the students, as they in turn wish to succeed and try their hardest. Students also help other students in school with academics, as well as out of school with personal lives and extracurricular activities. The school is a very open, friendly, and helpful environment that helps students succeed and learn to fail in a save place.

Personally, Americas High School is the best School in many areas. First of all, let's talk about the campus, the facilities, the halls, the cafeteria, the bathrooms, the areas of stay, etc. It is amazing how the structure, the furniture, and the environment that is given to us as students, can influence us in many aspects, because it is a motivation for us to continue with school and studies and always keep going. Another of my favorite things in Americas, is that there are many opportunities and a lot of help of teachers, they are always able to talk to you, to explain you everything, and they always motivates you in many aspects to keep moving forward. The environment, and the relationships between students and teachers are another aspect that motivates and like me, my true friend I knew them here. The school and faculty are giving us all the facilities in structure and education, now is our turn to be responsible.
Americas High School is an excellent school by all accounts. Informative, safe, with plenty of extracurricular activities for practically anything one could want. The food is above standard school fare save for the hamburgers everyone loves but I simply cannot trust.

That said, its not a particularly marvelous school and some organizations seemingly get favorite treatment. That, however, is probably due to the district and extenuating circumstances that have been unavoidable.

Additionally, throughout my time it has only seemed to get better so perhaps in a few years time Americas will be an easy 5 star, but for now it is in need of a little spirit from everyone involved.
