I love Arabia Mountain High School! From the moment I walked in on my first day of freshmen year I felt automatically welcome. The teachers were so friendly.The Principal of the school ,Dr. Rodney Swanson is the coolest principal ever. He is so understanding, you can talk to him about anything. Whenever you see him, he is going to greet you with a smile on his face, guaranteed. I am currently in my senior year at Arabia Mountain High School, and I must admit I am kind off sad I have to leave in a couple months. I started off has a shy girl, unsure and timid about everything. Oh how Arabia changed that. I am now the captain of the AMHS Jewels dance team (2018-2019), and was Co-Captain in the 2017-2018 school year. I've also recently won Homecoming Queen. If you would told me, 3 years ago that I would earn all these accomplishments, I would have never believed you. Arabia changed my life for the better, and everyone should know that I go to the best High School in the world.

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!
I moved back to Dekalb County in mid-summer of 2014, not knowing what to expect from this high school. Little did I know, suffering through summer homework and tumbling into more homework is rather an underestimate. With uniforms limiting our expression, some strict/mean teachers, replacement of staff members, and peer pressure, the three years of Arabia was a disastrous nightmare. As a senior now, the level of my maturity and independence mellowed out, I can guarantee saying that not everything was terrible. Most of the teachers were average to great educators to help my mental and physical state and the school offers benefits towards colleges, AP, Gifted, and Accelerated classes within the environment.
If you want to go to Arabia Mountain High School in the nearest future, just prepare yourself.
