I am currently enrolled in the PVA magnet at Annapolis High and I love it there! I encourage incoming 9th graders who love fine arts to join our sophisticated facility!
My ninth grader is loving AHS. His teachers are very committed and caring, he is challenged academically, and he has plenty of opportunities for clubs, athletics, and other activities. The school holds regular after-school drop in meetings that provide an opportunity for 9th grade parents to touch-base with teachers. The active PTA keeps parents aware of important dates and results of games and student successes. AHS is a great place with excellent staff.
My daughter came to AHS after being in private school from K-8 and we were a little nervous about the transition. She has had a great experience here and loves her school. She loves the diversity of kids, caring teachers and opportunities to participate in a multitude of programs. The staff has a lot on their plate working with such a diverse population but they seem to always strive to provide the additional services needed by some of our kids. We love AHS and try to spread the word to anyone who asks.
Annapolis High School have excellent IB, AP and Honors programs. Our daughter transferred into the IB Program from overseas. She found the teachers and faculty to be caring and encouraging. The IB program is very challenging, but was a good fit for our daughter. The teachers are excellent educators, who challenge their students to broaden their research and views. They graduate to be thoughtful and articulate young adults ready to take on new challenges in college/university.
I attend AHS. It has an awful reputation and, yes, bad things happen here, just like at every high school. But we also have good things. We have a good SGA, good teachers, smart students, etc. Other schools get their problems swept under the rug but at AHS, everyone knows everything that goes on here. Don't be scared to send your student here. It's an excellent school and I love attending it.
I was originally concerned about my son attending Annapolis High School, but this was the school of his choice. I have to tell you I have been nothing but thrilled with the school. The teachers are great, the administration works as a team. I am very impressed and happy with our choice to send him to Annapolis. It would be great to see more parent involvement, but I know that is a sign of the make up of the school. Many students don't have parents who are involved with their lives, let alone their school.
Students at AHS are more involved, socially, and politically aware than kids I know who attend other area schools.
Annapolis Senior High is a great school: diverse, interesting, culturally alive and stimulating. My son is an out-of-area student (a Junior) who chose this school over a very good neighborhood HS and has never regretted coming to Annapolis. In fact, he works very hard in his very rigorous program but he is having a great time, and he is able to join any club/sport team he wants. Mr. Lilly is a great principal and has an excellent staff.
A wide range on ethnicities and a place where everyone (and I mean everyone!) has a great time.
Annapolis is the best I just transfered from private school and I'm having the time of my life
The staff is very supportive of each other and work well as a team/family.
Our students and faculty have seen tragedy and triumph and have persevered through it all!
Annapolis High SChool has the most caring committed faculty I have ever had the pleasure to work with and students with such great potential! We don't give up but continue to press forward toward excellence!
Annapolis high school is the most diverse real life school in anne arundel county.
We really do have good teachers, especially the IB ones. I love that we have so many different people as well, I couldn't stand going to a rich white school where every kid is spoiled
Its the greatest school that has ever existed. Everyone gets along and everything is run flawlessly. It wouldn't hurt to be thrown some extra funding though. Our computers are still from the stone age.
I absolutely love Annapolis HIgh because it is a super diverse community where everyone comes from a different place but can always find someone they get along with. We have the IB program as well as the largest ESOL program in the county. We have a crazy amount of school spirit and most of all I love Annapolis High because it has become sort of a home for me that I won't forget!
Annapolis is the coolest school in the who;le county, there is always so much to do, whether its a game or a club, you will never find yourself bored. the school is also very diverse, the diversoty only adds to the uniqueness of the school. all the students and teachers are very friendly so one will always feel welcome upon entering the school building. Annapolis high school is the best school in the entire world
Every single student at Annapolis High is a highly motivated and superbly educated young adult with a brilliant future ahead of them. The faculty and staff create loyal relationships with not just some, but every one of their students. I am truly blessed to be apart of such a nurturing environment at Annapolis High.
I love the awesome teachers and I love how they work really hard to challenge you, so you can be the best student you can possibly be!
