Even though I don’t be go here anymore AHA is an amazing school with plenty of teachers that genuinely care. Maybe the teachers are really and I mean REALLY hard on us but that is because they actually care. The whole administration is really uplifting and when you do get in trouble they will talk and actually help you understand what you need to do. When it comes to school fights there are very few, in fact only about 4 a year!

What I really liked about Atrisco Heritage Academy is the concentration on helping their students prepare for college and feel determined to get to the finish line. They take their security system policy very serious requiring the students to wear ID's at all times in order to identify students from those who are not. The community is very involved in school spirit, making students aware that high school is not just about school work but also having fun and enjoying the time while it last. One thing I would wish to change is the advisory involvement with students. Students always have trouble finding the type of help they need.
For the most part though out my whole high school experience was four stars. The idea of feeling new feelings that we have never felt before was great and meeting new people was an interesting adventure. There are plenty of academies to choose from and you can truly find yourself, everyone and anyone can find themselves here in this high school. Not only is there a wide variety of academies to choose from however there are many more clubs and activities.The school spirit is on point every single game and I am very proud to call myself a jaguar. There really wouldn't be anything that I would change about this school, yet if I had too then I would choose to keep building this high school bigger than what it already is because of all the students that are attending this high highschool.
