AJHS is a school that really works with you. They believe in success, they truly want you to succeed at anything and everything you do! I was in that district nearly my whole school career and it was a great experience. I sadly moved away before my Junior year of high school, and it was tragic and detrimental to me. I had the chance to come back the second half of my senior year and it was one of the best choices if my life. I will always be a Prospector through and through!

Well, I suppose it's an okay school. I mean the funds aren't good. Teachers are nice though. The administration doesn't seem to care much about the students. Some teachers are amazing. Most clubs and art classes need more supplies. Virtually every class needs more access to more resources. They care more about funds towards sports than music and art and such.
I believe that the administration in the Apache Junction School district use what resources they have very well; however, a lack of funding and parent support often undermines the district.
