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!

My student life at Atrisco Heritage Academy High School has been a roller coaster. There are teachers who are just amazing at teaching the necessary content to pass tests and actually learn, while I have also had teachers that are not the est at being teachers. However, all administration members have great personalities and prepare us students for the future. I have always been a hard worker in school and a student with amazing grades. I have been left at disappointment, however, when permanent substitute teachers gave me a grade that I did not deserve. Despite this, I have worked and kept good relationships with teachers and staff because they can be great help in times of need.
Atrisco Heritage Academy is the largest high school in New Mexico. Aside from how beautiful this campus is, their athletic department was enjoyable. I was a student athlete, played soccer from my sophomore year to my senior year. The principal at the time encouraged the students to show support and show school pride. The assemblies were also great! It was always great to see the student body cheer and sing. I would choose this school again if I could because of the enjoyable experiences I had and the experiences that helped me grow to the person I am now. I admit I entered this school being a rather shy student but came out as a confident young woman with many aspirations to keep moving forward.
