Many people don't look back on their high school years with joy. However, I, in contrast, loved high school, and I believe this is because I was fortunate enough to be at such a great school. I've learned a lot in the last 4 years; not only in my academic studies, but also from life lessons from my experiences here. The teachers are probably the best part. Many are unique, and all of them have showed interest in their students' success, and I can look back on many of them with great fondness and gratefulness. The possibilities are limitless with activities, as there's at least one club that fits someone, and many of them are extensive and full of opportunities. The facilities in the older parts of the school could use renovation, but overall the school doesn't look too bad.

I have had a wonderful three years at AHS so far. I've made lots of new friends, and have learned lots. I've gotten to take really cool engineering and marine biology classes. AHS offers an abundance of awesome electives so you can get an idea of what you want to major in before you get to college, like culinary arts, forensic science, creative writing, car mechanics and much more. I feel that the guidance counselors are only focused on getting you into college, but I guess that's a good thing. The school is cliquey, but not in a bad way. I feel like everyone accepts everyone; cliques basically leave each other alone, but aren't exclusive, don't bully each other. There are the band kids, the theatre kids, the athletes, the mathletes, and yet we are one big, mostly (there are always a few) accepting community.
I had a phenomenal four years making new friends, performing at rallies and football games(dance team), my favorite aspect was the educational outreach. Obviously as a maturing student we must learn to ask for help ourselves because teachers have 100 plus other students to worry about. But in the times where I did go up to a teacher for aide, there was not a single time where I was not helped. Every teacher does care for their students all of them. When in time with a student, the teachers here give their full attention in aiding the student through any struggle be in social or educational. It is very inspiring to see such care and willingness and effort these teachers put into educating individuals into responsible maturing people.
