I have had relationships at this school that are sure to last. The teachers demonstrate dedication to their students every day inside and outside of school to the highest degree. They have taught me so much and I have truly taken away insight from their lessons. The counselors are tremendously supportive and organized. The student culture of bullying still needs to improve much, however, there is an enormous amount of support within those classrooms. School spirit is prevalent always and have enjoyed my time tremendously at AVHS. I have grown alot there. Go Lopes!

I only attended Antelope Valley High School for three semesters. In my previous high school I really wasn't so fond of going to school and I was lacking a couple of credits and had a couple of Ds'. My grades weren't so well. Once I arrived AVHS it was a new opportunity for me. They provided me with lots of academic help and enlisted me in a academic program with the the name of APEX. Though it was a struggle at first for me, I ended up completing all my missing credits and not just that, many of the Ds' I had turned into As' and Bs'. My GPA went up, I was enrolled in AP classes, and I with handwork I graduated on time. Not just that, this school has a lot of school spirit!
This School Is Very Good With There Sports Teams & Clubs. Many of the teachers are very nice and helpful and always are willing to help when you need it and they prepare you for college. The counselors as well as the teachers are always talking about scholarships and fafsa and applying for college and SAT,they not only want us to succeed and get good grades in high school but they want us to do great in the future. The School is very engaging the football games are very fun, many students support our schools sport teams. The school is over all great the only thing would be it needs to be like remodeled its kind of old but its good. The Counselors,Principles, & Teachers here are great.
