    Resources & Facilities: AHS has a history of having bad facilities, but we are in the fortunate position that our current residency is temporary. There is a project underway that will ultimately lead to a modern, state of the art, permanent building.

    Overall Experience: AHS is unique simply because it deviates from a traditional high school. Being weird is completely acceptable, and textbooks are almost obsolete. It has created students with incredible drive to learn as much as possible and to achieve great things. The teachers are inspirational and there is an innate sense of respects towards every individual. It also creates opportunities to experience different passions; whether it be through Osprey Week or a project.

    Teachers: The teachers at AHS are both inspiring and challenging. Every teacher opens the students up to new perspectives and consistently challenges the limits a student may put on themselves. They create interactive classes that immediately make students want to be involved.

    Student Culture & Diversity: Acceptance is a highly valued aspect of AHS's culture. Having such small class sizes helps prevent cliques and drama, which ultimately leads to everyone respecting one another.
