    This will be my 4th year at AGS and I absolutely love it! Coming from a public school, I have been able to really appreciate what AGS has to offer, because I have been given so many opportunities that are not offered elsewhere. The teachers at AGS are amazing and very passionate about what they teach. They truly care about each girl's success, and really get to know each girl. Because of its small size, AGS has a very close-knit community. At AGS there are many unique programs and traditions, including meaningful weekly assemblies, advisory, EDLS, and Winterim. There are also many exciting social events, including Homecoming Week events, Coffee House, and Horizon Day. Personally, I have found many ways to get involved in the AGS community, including joining many clubs, participating in chorus, and mentoring middle school girls through Chick Chat. Overall, AGS is a great school that prepares girls for college and beyond.

    I love AGS. Since my first day at AGS, I felt like I was part of a welcoming and inviting community. My teachers are really nice and always there to support and help me. The students at AGS are nice and it's a tight-knit community. I love the all-girls environment because I can be me without the drama of boys!
    I came here for my last few years of highschool and I am very happy here. Teachers care very much and almost everybody is nice to eachother. Coming here has changed my life, I am such a confident person now!
