My experience at Alpena High School was great! Of course, at every school there is that one teacher who you just really don't like who I came across but the majority of my teachers were friendly, helpful, and understanding. Whenever I had a problem or was in need of help I always knew there would be someone to go to. It always felt like a safe and secure learning environment and offered many extra things to get involved in. We had everything from Culture Club to National Honor Society and everything in between. I really cannot think of many things that I would say wow I really wish my school would have offered me.

The quality of teacher's at Alpena High School is very good, they are knowledgable in the subject they teach. Many of the teachers are also very interested in their students, academically as well as the students extra curricular. Communication is also very open at AHS, I am comfortable with all of my teachers and would go to them with any questions or concerns. The grading scale is the same through out the whole school, however some teachers grade harder than others. Grading depends on the type of class.

The teachers at this school have many different teaching styles and find the way their students learn best, which shows and interest in their students. They are very knowledgeable and know how to answer your questions, and if not they will find the answer. They all talk to their students on what they are missing or if they have missed too much school. They also communicate well when the students don't understand one of the topics they are teaching. The school has a standard grading scale which makes the grading consistent.
