Annapolis High School really opened my eyes to the outside world. I am glad to have attended because it was fun but it definitely was not the best education I could have received. By the end of sophomore year the amount of fights certainly decreased but we still have the occasional one. The IB Programme certainly has helped prepare me for college but it could be more challenging. I would say that you should not let the fact that we're considered an "unsafe" school deter you from sending your child here. We are not unsafe, we have on campus police and lots of administrators. I have never felt unsafe while attending! Plus it has been an unforgettable experience!

Annapolis High School, although unusually diverse, is obviously suffering from de facto segregation. This effects the classes and programs which students participate in. For example, the majority of IB students are white upper/ middle class students, while the majority of standard level students are minorities. Some examples of the great inequalities are that while some students are participating in gang violence, others spend hours doing homework in hopes of achieving good grades so they can get into college.

Another huge issue in the school is the teacher turnover rate. Many of my best teachers have either left already or plan to leave soon after my class graduates because they cannot afford to live and teach in Annapolis. Their paychecks have been cut instead of raises being awarded, as if they already were not paid enough. Due to this, Annapolis high school is losing valuable access being put towards students, and are frantically being replaced by less than quality teachers.
My time at Annapolis High School was very rewarding. I was able to grow academically, socially, and mentally while at this high school. Some of the highlights of my time at Annapolis are taking Advanced Placement (AP) classes, participating in National Honor Society, competing on the schools sports teams, and building positive relationships with administration, staff, and my fellow students.

One thing the school could improve on is updating some of its facilities, such as the cafeteria and bathrooms.
