Our daughter transferred has a senior and her grades have never been better, we love the academic campus atmosphere and the college bound approach to her curriculum, having lunch outside also gives the students the freedom to take a break and accept responsibility with those privileges, great school ...  Read more

The school is big and has come a long way in just a few years. Most of the teacher's work hard and seem to care about the students. The fine arts program is outstanding and the extra-curricular sports are competitive. The school principal cares about the kids and keeps the school clean and safe. Most ...  Read more

Don't let the exterior fool you, AHS looks like the perfect school, some even think it is a private school. The administrators don't care about student safety or about educational success. They want parental involvement for volunteering and for fund raising, especially for fund raising, but they ...  Read more

The teachers are great, and the administration does a really good job of keeping things under control while being reasonable at the same time.

My daughter has attended AHS for the past 3 years. We have been very pleased with everything from the teachers to the athletics. The school is only 4 years old and is growing. One parent stated that the school puts too much emphasis on fundraising, but I feel it is only a way of helping the school to ...  Read more
