The teachers, the students, the curriculum; all are exceptional. Yet this school is relatively unknown. The Humanities program is very unique, and educates about topics that other students attending other schools are unaware or know little to nothing about. The teachers are engaged and care for their students, and this is benefited by the small student body and class sizes. The college preparation program was rocky at first but has been updated and revitalized to suit the needs of the students and truly does help in their efforts to find a college that is right for them.

Amy Biehl's entire curriculum was based on social justice and the significance of our roles in a community. As a student, you are expected to participate in over 100 hours of community service at non-profit organizations of your choice by the time of graduation. The values of social justice Amy Biehl upholds reflect on the curriculum in the humanities/ languages arts based courses at the school. If you find yourself interested in activism and the study of social issues, I would recommend enrolling at ABHS.
The school takes a different approach on academics which challenges students and allows them to gain a different perspective than a text book would provide. Amy Biehl is great a college prep. Beginning with the college grading scale which encourages students to maintain grades above a 75%, and there are plenty of resources for those who struggle to meet this scale. In their senior year, students take two college classes and complete 100 community service hours at a local organization of their choice. Through their four years, students participate in community service monthly which allows them to make connections with citizens within their community and be involved. The school's culture is different from any student culture found in an APS school. There is little-to-no need for correctional action. Students get along and are respectful to the building, staff, and downtown area. Overall, this is an amazing school which provides students a fulling and unique high school experience.
