Americas High School Reviews

What I liked about Americas High School was the sense of community and overall care the teachers and student displayed for one another. My teachers were a big influence when it came to my personal and educational growth; they showed my new viewpoints when it came to broadening my horizon and encouraged me to use my education to discover the world.
What I would like to see changed would be student involvement in the El Paso community. Students can join different organizations at Americas who do help the community, but I feel Americas high school student who are not involved in extracurricular activities miss out on forming a relationship with the El Paso community. Therefor, I would like Americas high school to spend sometime in educating its students on the importance of community service, and how students efforts can have a big impact on countless lives.

Attending A.H.S was probably the best four years of my life! Being there i have learned a lot of things both education wise and everything else. The teachers, counselors, and coaches were all there for you when ever you needed them, and that was awesome.
Americas Highschool is a school of greatness and legacy. It is the greatness of the legacy that defines this school. The legacy leaves an example that the younger classes must attain. This leads to a shortcoming of talent and leadership. But Americas highschool manages to retain and influence those individuals who are not afraid to create and leave their own legacy. I thank Americas Highschool for offering an opportunity to my life with all the great dual credit and AP programs. And as well, the amazing Law based magnet program of Libertas.
