    "I'm pleased with the caliber of teaching and with the education I have received; however, many of the students are mean to the younger kids for no reason and new people don't feel welcomed."

    "The school I have attended my whole life has taught me to work hard for what I want and that not everything comes easily. The students at my school are all very smart which makes everyone a little bit more competitive when it comes to awards and such. Attending a college preparatory school my whole life challenged me with harder classes and gave me more preparation for college itself."

    "I can only speak about upper school: Teachers really care about students and most go above and beyond to help students. They will always come to school early to help students who request extra help. The teachers are extremely knowledgeable in their respective fields. The campus is in a safe area of Dothan and campus itself is safe. Most students are hard working and intelligent with big goals for the future. School spirit at sporting events is positive and many students enjoy attending the events. Short term (the week before spring break) allows students to participate in community service activities or be part of their class trip (Freshman go to Boston, Sophomores go on a tour of several colleges, juniors can go to Europe and seniors do job shadowing or go on a senior service trip). This short term is a fantastic part of HA. Language clubs, Robotics, Animal rescue club and others are popular. There is a lot of parent involvement at the school, which is both positive and negative. Positive if parents are helping in appropriate ways. Negative if parents are hovering or acting like helicopter parents and not allowing their child(ren) to learn (It's a college prep school and therefore students need to take initiative instead of having mommy/daddy intervening). Students in 9-12th grade especially need to learn to sink/swim on their own to be prepared for college. Block scheduling similar to colleges with M/W/F classes and T/TH classes would better prepare students AND allow 2 days to study/prepare for the next class. This also allows for better balance of school and extra curricular activities. Overall, we have been impressed with HA and are grateful that our child attends this school."

    "Many teachers at my school are very well educated and help students during and after school hours. Most of them put in extra work and time into preparing students for tests and quizzes, and make sure that students actually understand what they are learning. A majority of the teachers are interested in the students everyday life and make conversations with students to take sure they are doing okay outside of school . A lot of the teachers will confront a student that is acting differently to make sure that everything is okay, and will try to help them in whatever way possible."
