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!

My experience at Antelope Valley High School has been great. They offer diverse programs for students willing to be challenged. In my case I joined the Green Enterprise program and chose to take the business side. Through this program I have experienced talented teachers who do show appreciation and understanding for their students. I have been taught a lot and I believe this program is a great aspect of my school. Another program I am involved in is Agriculture. Antelope Valley High School has a great friendly agriculture department in which is associated with Future Farmers of America, a national organization, which is very diverse and has taught me great responsibility and helped build my public speaking. The school is very attentive to their students whether it be in the classroom, office, or yard. I appreciate everything this school has done for me.
Antelope Valley High School provided me with awesome academic and personal support to prepare for college. However, it lacked in meeting the needs of a large number of students who underperformed. I got the support and guidance I needed from faculty who are designated for prioritizing honors students in the academic competitiveness of colleges and universities. It would have been better to see other classmates of mine who were not in my advanced placement classes to receive the same encouragement and resources.
