This school has been excellent for my 10th grade daughter. Big changes in her attitude and behavior, great grades, lots of work and great opportunities, clubs and teams. My daughter likes to stay after school for theater or debate class. She plays softball and hockey. She has visited colleges and taken weekend Women In Science course. This school has exceeded all our expectations.
AWHS is a small Catholic school which encourages kids to succeed and also have a positive high school experience. The teachers truly care about their students and work hard to help them succeed. The upperclassmen are very kind and helpful to the younger students. The school is constantly upgrading and evolving and encourage suggestions from students and parents. They are also always adding new athletic teams and clubs as the interest arises.
As satisfied as I am with the academics here, I feel as though there is a lack of extracurricular opportunities. My child has found it hard to get involved because not much is offered outside of the classrooms; it seems as though the two main activities are athletics and theater, and that does not cater to the diverse interests of the entire student body. Other than that, everything else at AWHS is top notch.
AWHS is an excellent school, with an outstanding administration and teaching staff! My kids received such a well-rounded education, made lifelong friends at Archies and they were fully prepared for adult life and college. Don't think twice about sending your children here, you won't be disappointed!
Best choice for my daughter, such a difference from the public schools in our town of Plymouth, Massachusetts. She just loves her teachers( wonderful and caring) and has made great friends! If you are thinking about sending your child don't hesitate.
