I love the teachers. They are very helpful and communicative with parents. But I am not sure about the kids that my child is involved with. I am not happy with the type of children that attend to this school.

I give AFHS a good four stars just because its not the best neighborhood also it is not maintained as it should be, I do belive on being a better school on my personal expirence they should put grass in the dirt areas , and upgrade on new bathrooms and just upgrade in genral . I am a current sophmore. But my overall all expirenve is 5 stars with teachers and faculty and staff when im at agua i feel i could be myself and not be afraid and everybody is family there . Deffinantly should lett your child go there cause I would feel lonely if I didnt have AFHS . Alot of people says its "Ghetto" but which is complete opposite its just not put in a very good location. no dont be affraid lol everyone is friendly ... GOO OWLLSSS CLASS OF 2015 !!!!!!!! SOPHHMOOORRREESSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

We'll have two daughters attending Agua Fria next year and couldn't be happier. The teachers are helpful and supportive. The student body is very supportive of each other, which has a feeling of family, or at least a close knit community. The motto is "Honor first. Win or lose." and they walk the walk the walk at Agua Fria.

This is an awesome school. I think most people are juding afhs by the area it is located.My son is a senior and I hope he has the kind of instructors in college that he had at afhs. They are very caring and very interested in the students welfare. I almost hate to see my son leave here. The staff here are so kind and helpful. Always get immediate reply whenever I send emails

I am a present senior here at AFHS and in reading these ratings I agree with some! I think that the AFJROTC program is the one and only thing here that deserves 5 stars! The bathrooms on campus are often closed for unnecessary reasons or out of order. Some dont even have doors. More times than not while walking down the hallways and past the bathrooms you can get contact high. Everybody says that all the money goes to the athletics but i am an athlete and we hardly have any money. The teachers are good for the most part. The Chief and Col. are really educated, and Haley is the best!!!

This is my third year at AF and it is amazing school. The administration is very involved along with the teachers, and in return students are motivated to participate in extracurricular activities and academics. A student can feel safe in this friendly environment where there are hardly divisions amongst students. This school as a history of striving for the best. The only improvement that could be helpful is funding school equipment like Verrado (Agua Fria District), because all Verrado has is expensive equipment. Despite the fact Agua Fria actually deserves it through its seniority, achievement, high number of students and persistence towards academics. The district office may make poor choices as to how administrate the money, even then Agua Fria can cope with anything and always rises on the top.

This school has it's problems, more then a few of those are almost entirely in the hands of the parents. People can blame who ever they want for the institution's short comings, but in the end it is up to the student to learn. I am tired of schools that hold students hands through high school. I like many before me have achieved so much at Agua Fria, and those who do not can only blame themselves. I have learned more than academics at Agua Fria, i have lived through what it takes to succeed in the real world. Not some fantasy that we try to create.
