    Teachers: This is a hard question because there are so many types of teachers at this school. I currently have three teachers that genuinely care about the students' education and try their best to provide it for us. I also currently have three other teachers that shall not be named and perform their jobs inadequately.

    Extracurriculars: Extracurricular activities at ACHS are great. There's a wide variety presented for students to join on club fair days and such. There's something for everyone, whether they like sports, volunteering, cooking, theatre, arts (drawing, painting, pottery), or just need tutoring after school and so much more.

    Overall Experience: Even though i can said i hate this school, I am not able to hate it fully, this school has showed me so many things that i probably wouldn't have known if i went to any other school so i would not choose to go to any other school aside from this school.

    Food: The school board doesn't seem to show the students that they really care about what the students eat.

    Administration & Policies: The school administration has not been the most prominent with their disciplinary record and could be a lot better and more responsible.
