This school is amazing! American Fork High School is known for their marching band which I am proud to be apart of! Teachers expect their students to learn but, the teachers are easy to get along with and making learning easier. It feels like teachers are hand-selected not chosen for the highest degree. Amazing!

I love American Fork! I wouldn't change where I went. The overall atmosphere was outstanding. My only personal complaint was the cliques and how hard it was to get into a group of friends. However, that is all personal and everyone will have a different experience. The staff and teachers are excellent and care about their students and their success. The school involves its students and really tries to rally up school spirit, something I loved about American Fork. Overall, you can't go wrong in choosing American Fork High School.

I like that the teachers are all so helpful and nice. They're willing to help a student in any kind of situation. The administration is also nice because they have great personalities. Everyone has good school spirits and I've met some of the best people that I know of at this school. Things I would like to see change is the students perspectives. Because I'm not Mormon, I've been discriminated since middle school by those who I friended back in elementary. I would also like to see cliques go away. They can make a person feel left out and make them feel out of place because you can only be determined by your "group." I also feel that sometimes the teacher's favorites come into play as well. The teacher's personality changes as each student passes by to talk or just to say hi. It's obvious that some students are disliked by how they look more than their personality. This way of judging people is still very dominant within this school but I hope to see that change.
