    "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."

    "AHS is an amazing high school with excellent teachers and administrators. The academic, athletics and arts programs are top in the state and competitive nationally."

    "I've been going here for 3 yrs now, and I've lived in the Alpharetta area for a while. This school used to be SUCH a phenomenal school, especially education wise. However, the quality has decreased in the last 3 yrs. Last year, we lost about 11 teachers because they weren't happy with administration so they moved on to other schools. The honors teachers teach at very contrasting levels. Some students got a solid A in an honors sci class simply because they didn't have the super difficult teacher who gave students nothing higher than a low B. Something really important for new students to know - fitting in isn't the easiest thing in the world. Hate to admit this, but the majority of students only care about how expensive/luxurious your car is and if you have the latest iPhone or not. We lost a group of amazing teachers and so many kids are struggling now in their rigorous classes. AHS is not in its best place right now academically and students may not always be welcoming. It may not seem that important in the mind of a parent, but it means more to your high schooler than you think. Above all, I love being an Alpharetta Raider. I just hope the quality improves in the near future."
