I am blessed to be part of such an incredible school. My children have been in AHS since they were three years old and now they are in various grades throughout the school and their experience has been amazing. Each child was taught using their strengths. My children have grown academically in ways that truly only bring extreme happiness to my husband and me. The academics are top notch and the school delivers the best well-rounded education to all students. The children love going to school and as a parent to see their smiling faces and eager attitudes toward school make the difference. We are so happy to be part of the AHS experience.
