    Overall Experience: Over all I didn't enjoy the school very much but as a student going through high school not very many enjoy there time there. I did make my place at AHS; I made friends; I joined sports and group, and over all use my time wisely at the high school. But if you ask me to do it all over again, there is absolutely no chance I would say yes. I am glad to be out of there and doing more important task for my life, like college and getting a job.
