    "The school provides a great blend of diversity, both amongst the student population and amongst the teachers, exposing (and giving) all students a real world multi-cultural environment . Some parents, do complain about accents, but they also need to remind themselves of the world we live in. Spoken English varies from Seattle to Chicago to Boston to New York to Georgia to Alabama to England to Europe, and this school enables our kids this exposure. The faculty are extremely approachable and friendly, taking interest in supporting students any way they can, across all Sciences, English, Math to name a few. They are a great example for students themselves. I am really glad to have chosen this area to live in, and am extremely proud to send my kids (now & future) to this school. As parents, let's unite, stop dividing based on race or accents or other personal motives, and make this school a much more enjoyable place for generations to come."

    "I am disappointed with the school in that they are not preparing these kids for college and life; I am sure all of these public schools are like this now. They only care about the top kids taking the A/P courses; the majority of the kids are floundering. We have lived in this area on 3 separate occasions and I always wanted to live back here due to the schools; not so much now. Even though WBMS may be a good school, I don't think they prepared the kids for High School; I have heard this from quite a few others. My child was A/B student in advanced classes, now is a low/solid B and struggles with certain honors teachers. I think the administration needs to take a hard look at what is happening as the word is that there are a lot of teachers leaving again this year. My biggest fear is that once my child leaves for college, they will be behind as the structure has not been there for preparing them in what is yet to come. I am considering private school for these reasons and I wish I would have done it a couple of years ago so that a change wouldn't have been had to be made."

    "In comparison to other schools, class workload is through the roof,especially in honors and ap classes. Also, what you end up with in a class largely depends on your teacher. You may receive an 85 in a class that you could've gotten a 95+ in if you had the right teacher. There is a significant difference in difficulty of teachers that teach the same subject making it unfair to those who get the unflavored one and scoring lower in the class because at the end of the day, your final transcript only shows the course name and your grade, so the excess work and harder grading that people have to go through with the more difficult teacher is not accounted for. Also, the administration is not reliable and is very bad with dealing with schedules especially. The school is very cliquey. Overall, this school tries way to hard to become one of the top school and in doing so, puts enormous load and pressure on the students. Furthermore, there are far too many restrictions and regulations. Most people I speak with are not very content with the school as well. I am currently a sophomore and I have to say, this school needs some serious adjustments."

    "The quality of education is excellent. AHS's test scores (SAT/ACT and AP scores) are among the top 2% in the U.S. according to Newsweek magazine in 2013. So, if you are looking for a challenging academic program, you have found it. The school is very diverse and that is actually a great thing. This school gives students a real world experience in terms of getting along with all types of people. There are some spoiled factions, but for the most part the students are hardworking, involved and caring. The teachers are wonderful and do a great job instructing an preparing students for college. Many inspire students to become teachers which says a lot. The only negative is the principal. She is not a strong leader and lacks respect from, students, parents and teachers. She treats the students like they are in elementary school (which she would be better suited for) and goes out of her way to kill the school spirit (banning students' ideas for spirit, confiscating costumes at football games, etc). The students, teachers and parent volunteers rise above the administrative challenges to make the school a huge success in academics, arts and sports!"
