I really enjoy the people! The principal Mrs. Weeks is an amazing principal and person, she is very helpful to all students. Even when she is busy she will take time out of her day to listen to a student. Majority of the teachers I had/have were very effective in teaching students while simultaneously maintaining their interest. I do have to say that the counselors were often very unhelpful or belligerent. I understand that counselors have a lot of work, but if the principal of the school can make time to hear my trivial schedule problems then surely the people who's job it is to worry about my trivial schedule problems should be able to make time.

The high school itself is old, interesting to see the age however it needs new flavor. Its different everyday. Famous actors, NFL stars and even the man who killed the president in 1963. Like I said, its interesting. The administration is quite annoying but i understand their job. Teachers are on a spectrum, there's the really active teachers and the teachers that make you question why they teach. The students all come from different backgrounds, although, you would expect them not to get along. Besides the few, students are friends with each other which helps the schools security. When it comes to sport, this is the go-to school. The best coaching staff i have ever come across who focus on post-high school plans as well. When sports seasons roll around, Arlington Heights plays a game of total domination. Overall, this a good school and I would recommend any student to attend.
Academics is really good, good environment to study and friendly people to be around. Teachers and other staff are so friendly, it feels like as if they are part of your family. You don’t really feel left alone. At least one or more teacher will notice about you and make you feel comfortable. I, myself felt that way. AHHS is mine very first school that I attended after my immigration and it have never disappointed me. I was pretty shy back then and felt like I don’t belong there back then when I was still new. Now, I talk a lot, made plenty of friends. Classes in AHHS is not really hard, it’s so productive and fun to do. If you do your work on time then, you can enjoy your free time. If you are failing classes then the teacher will still help you pass the class by providing test correction and extra credit. It’s really helpful.
