Apache Junction High School Reviews
AJ High definietly has an atmosphere unlike any other high school. After attending four years at this high school I've seen many things that speak volumes about this school and it's district. For one it's a lot smaller compared to the neighboring districts/high schools, giving it that small home town feel that AJ has displayed on multiple occasions. Recently many tragedies have occured at the school such as multiple teacher and student passings, but none of that has lowered the school's moral, if anything it increased it. AJ fights for one another and takes care of each other like a family. A family I am proud to be apart of.
Probably the worst thing about the teachers at AJHS is the fact that they don't try to keep assignments in the bounds of what students would be able to do. For example, many teachers grade whether or not students have all the supplies needed for that class by a certain time. If a student tells the teacher that for financial reasons, they won't be able to complete the assignment until a later date, the student is then told something along the lines of,"Find a way around it", or, "Deal with it." This attitude continues throughout the whole of the school year, for all circumstances.
I haven't really learned anything at this school. The only course I took that I feel I got something out of was Culinary Foundations, an Evit course. The students also have horrible attitudes, almost all of them disrespecting the teachers and vandalizing the school. Final note, the rules are strict in the wrong areas. You'll get suspended if you stay in a hospital for 10 school days, but whether or not bad behavior and dress code violations are reported depends upon which teacher likes you. In general, not a good experience.
