The years that comprise a student’s academic experience in secondary school, the middle school through high school years, are a unique period in one’s lifetime. This is a time of change, from childhood to young adulthood, and with this change comes challenges, opportunities, and a broad-range of new experiences. During these years, an important aspect of human development that impacts a person’s future is his/her education.
To this end, American High School offers a multitude of academic options and programs for our students. It is important to carefully consider these options and to become familiar with the requirements for successful progression from middle school to high school and postsecondary education.
School administrators, teachers, and counselors are key individuals in helping to guide students in making smart choices to optimize each student’s academic experience. It is my hope that each student take advantage of the information available on our website and of the assistance provided at American High School to plan an academic path that leads to success during the secondary school years and, ultimately, as a productive member of society.
