Both my sons (12 and 6) are bully daily. I was told that bulling is a national problem and there is nothing they can do about it. Teachers have to many students to little help. Not a good placement if your kids have any IEP needs.

Excellent teachers who are dedicated to the students. Great PTA group called CAST (Community and School Together)that allow for hands-on parent involvement and provides services and opportunities for students teachers and the community. They have a wonderful curriculum with cutting edge programs such as Guided Reading and Saxon Math. They have just increased the graduation requirements so that all graduates are able to compete in today's education and work forces. Art music band and sports are available from the elementary grades throughout high school. The community is very involved and supports the shcool and it's activities! We have excellent test scores and are the 'look to' school in our conference for making strides to ensure that 'no child gets left behind.'
AHST should be ashamed of their bad decisions these last five or so years. The school board has shown resounding energy for being led in directions of promised greener pastures; decisions that concerned patrons armed with research led to very large piles of manure. (I agree with new buildings just in case your are wondering) There is no culpability at AHST. Decisions were and persist to be satisfied with lack of research foundation or fact. The school board is made up of a few individuals with the wherewithal who simply lack courage and confidence. Meanwhile our children suffer greatly.
