    "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."

    "I love AHS, but it does come with its flaws. The school is extremely cliquey, and it makes it hard to fit in. However, if you meet the right people, your experience here will be awesome. The teachers and students here are a mixed bag. There's a lot of fantastic teachers here, but there's bad teachers everywhere. I guess I have more of the inside perspective because i'm more involved in the school, but a lot of the people here are very closed minded and materialistic. Don't wear name brands? Don't have an expensive car? Don't have the latest phone? Not into the 'coolest' things? That's what causes this school to have a bad rep. The right people will come around though, so just find them. The teaching is divided. Some honors classes are less work than on level. It all depends. Some on level classes are just a lot of tedious easy work, while some are tedious hard work. If you take any honors lit, get ready to annotate between multiple classes. Overall, I love my school, but there's just a lot of baggage that comes with it."
