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!

I liked that the teachers were very involved in furthering the students education. The extracurricular activities led to friendships and bonds beyond the classroom. Being able to experience freedom of choosing a certain sport or club helped me find my interests in the world. Through the school I was able to develop morals, values, and a strong work ethic that I can take with me forward to all my future endeavors. Though the road ahead will not be easy, I know I am prepared thanks to Atrisco Heritage Academy High School.
Coming to Atrisco for these past years was a very great experience. Now that I'm a senior, looking back at my freshman and my sophomore years were a long way for me to be in this position. I am proud and loyal to this school that such a huge campus would let me be a part of its environment. Highschool was really a big impact in my life. I was bullied a lot in middle school because of how different I am such as my race conpared from others. But when I entered highschool, it was a whole new world for me. I got many supportive friends throughout the years, I joined sports, I had great teachers, and the classes were amazing. Of course, the challenges will always be a part of me, but I just keep on moving forward. One change that I would want the school to have is that to ensure the strong safety and off from violence, and also the success of all students to be ready for college.
