Arabia Mountain High School - Academy of Engineering Reviews

My daughter just completed her freshman year at Arabia Mountain High School. The course load is rigorous, and it took her about 2 months to really get acclimated to the amount of work she has on a daily basis. Using a daily planner has helped her tremendously in getting and staying organized, which is a MUST at Arabia Mountain. She has been able to maintain the A/B Honor Roll while being active in 2 sports, as well as the AFJROTC. The administration and teachers truly seem to care about the students' well-being, in and out of the classroom. And I have never seen a PTSA as active and involved as the one at AMHS. If you want your child to be successful in life, then Arabia Mountain High School is the place for him or her!

What I like about Arabia Mountain High School is the emphasis on academics and openness to extracurricular activities. The teachers truly care about the students and are open to tutorial for anyone who needs it. I especially love the literature and science departments. As far as clubs and organizations, there are plenty of regional and nationally recognized programs, especially with CTSOs. It is also easy to create your own clubs! Arabia Mountain is definitely one of the best schools in the area.
Attending Arabia Mountain High School is one of the greatest decisions I ever made. Arabia Mountain is a clean, spacious, and environmentally friendly school with great academics, varieties of clubs, and extracurricular activities. This school was built on a nature preserve to not only have a beautiful learning environment for the students but to help students understand the purpose of being eco-friendly. Arabia implements EIC which stands for Environment as an Integrating Context. It is a service learning project that is done each year through different subjects to inform students on problems that can arise by not preserving your environment. Arabia Mountain also has college readiness which is determined by your prepatory seal. Moreover, they advocate different ways to advance your learning such as dual-enrollment and advanced placement courses. In general Arabia is just the better option where you can buckle down and learn but have fun at the same time.
