Such a disappointment I moved here thinking oh has great schools and what a fool to believe this this school is way waaayy lay back my kids usually where in 4 AP wich they were having great results with a lot of hard work here they don't even have many of the AP and they don't even motivated them to take them the only GPA that counts is the un weighted and every body is gonna graduate with the same color they award people who do not even do well other kids just said just take a bunch of arts and you"ll make it. Don't worry you can graduate with less than 24 credits!! Sad!!

Anacortes has some excellent teachers....... Some are not so excellent. The classes can be really easy and tedious but the clubs sports and other extra activities definitely make up for it.
My 7th grader just entered AMS and loves school. We just moved to Anacortes and it has made a difference in his life. I see him with more passion and drive than he had last year.
I have never seen a small school with so many exceptional teachers. My children have been well prepared for the world and for college. I am very happy with Anacortes High School
Very weak Principal unprepared for the responsibility of the job. Too many counselors for the number of students in the school. Poor administration of the budget.
I became unemployed here in Anacortes; work or no work. I have made the choice that if needed I would become a welfare mom just to keep my son in this school. When we moved here my kids were very far behind; the schools were absolutely awesome in the extra help we were given to catch them up. I feel the education my son is getting is priceless.
Their enthusiam for all their endeavors! Plus they have a wonderful music department!
The school has an excellent staff and especially a strong social studies program. Social studies teachers connect well with the students and are willing to work with parents and students in order to assure academic improvement and success. The girl's athletic program is one of the best in the area with a strong tradition in basketball swimming and fastpitch. A great and safe place for a teenager to go to school.
it is a great school with lots of different interesting kids. i wish i could go there for four more years.
An alumni myself I have found the education my 3 children have received here in Anacortes has been exceptional mainly due to the very connected experienced and caring staff of educators. The fine group of counselors both at AMS and the high school are more than dedicated. They are the parent's best link to guiding a student successfully through the tough and troublesome years some will find prior to graduation. Anacortes counselors should be credited with a majority of the positive guidance students need heading into their future whether it be on to college or not.
School hasn't even started yet and so far we have met our Counselor Principal Athletic dept. and several students and parents All welcoming us to the area. We sat for three hours with the counselor She wanted know what there previous classes were their goals their interests and their personalities. The Counselor (Ms. Ashbach) was well informed and helped my children create timelines and classes that would help them reach their goals. We are military and have moved around a lot I am very excited about the opportunities that are at Anacortes High School.
Our experience was that students were put into classes too advanced w/ no other options. Teachers were uncooperative in helping kids to succeed and had no time or interest in working w/ parents. When students failed these advanced classes they were thrown in they then had to pay an astronimical amount of money for summer school. Also Not impressed w/ classes offered and availability.
Great school very friendly people.
