I had 2 children graduate from the Armada High School and now my grandchildren attend this school. The changes that have been made through the years have only made the school better than ever.

Top notch staff and administration. Great atmosphere. From the other parents to the students, it has absolutely the friendliest people. Everyone from the superintendent on down to the custodians are so helpful and approachable. There are many award winning programs, including HOSA, and as many, if not more, opportunities for students as much larger districts have. I cannot say enough about the community and the people. We could not be happier with our decision to relocate into the Armada district.

Great School! Excellent Programs and staff. Armada High School has an award winning Renewable Energy Program, a national award winning Health Occupations program, excellent drama program and a wide variety of successful sports programs. Additionally, Armada High School has a full band program including orchestra, jazz band, concert band and music theory. The teachers are excellent and two have won Macomb County Teacher of the year in the past four years. Lastly, the principal was named Michigan High School Principal of the Year in 2013.

We moved out to Armada (from Clinton Township) to provide our children an excellent education in a safe, family oriented community. We were welcomed from the beginning and never regretted the move. The district could use some technology upgrades but oveall they do an amazing job with the limited resources of a small district. The kids are excited to be involved in plays, concerts, and sports and I Iove that the students are expected to maintain decent grades in order to participate in the fun stuff. The staff is involved and takes a genuine interest in the success of their students. I would highly recommend Armada Schools!

I brought my kids to Armada high School from Capac. I had to get away from the constant cuts and the growing hardcore drug use. Frankly, the Armada staff has been tremendous. They truly love working with students and create wonderful opportunities for students. I especially like the Drama program and the Academy. Everyone is so friendly and is willing to take time for my son and daughter. It is great to have kids who like to go to school again. I cannot say enough about the atmosphere and the community. It was the best decision I made.

The Armada District is excellent. I have worked in several districts prior to coming to Armada in 2004 and nowhere have I been surrounded by kinder kids, more dedicated staff, and (at the high school where I work), more supportive, innovative administration. Negative reviews from 7 or 8 years ago were accurate for that time. Our buildings were in sad shape. However, all of the buildings have been renovated beautifully and our district has provided technology that was unavailable in different districts. The Armada district, by itself, has a relatively small population, but our numbers are growing every year due to the large influx of "schools of choice" kids coming from communities across our county. Parents are very involved and turn outs at parent conferences and other family opportunities are always high. We have many extra-curricular activities (in addition to all of the major sports) such as SADD, student government, PLT, book club, etc. Any student would be lucky to come to this district where the bar is set high and the students well-prepared for their futures.

We have the kindest, sweetest kids, the most dedicated teachers and the greatest degree of technology and equipment that our poorly funded system can afford.

I had a child graduate from this school last year in 07 and felt that she was in a great school with caring teachers and community. I have another child in 4th grade who is completely happy and has had nothing but a+ teachers. This is a great school with a great staff.

I am a student in Armada High School, and my experiences with the entire district have been unpleasant ones. The school is in serious need of repair, there is an enormous lack of discipline, there are few opportunities for students outside of sports teams, and there are many teachers whom I feel should not be teaching for various reasons. Because of the lack of discipline, I have endured harassment from other students and oftentimes I felt that the behavior of others was interfering with my classes running smoothly. There is tolerance for things that should not be tolerated. Students are not accepting of others' beliefs and place little value in diversity. I would not recommend this school to anybody.

While it has been a few year since I graduated (1999)I feel AHS is an excellent school. While they do not have every class or sport that a larger school has, the teachers are excellent and many of the students care a great deal for their community. There are ample opportunities to be involved in many activities.

I just wanted to comment on the previous response. LOW LEVEL OF PARENT INVOLVEMENT!--You have got to be kidding me! I have never met more caring and involved parents anywhere. I think we have so few discipline and safety problems in our small town because parents in Armada are very in touch with their children.

Armada High is a great school to have your child enrolled in. Yes the school has its faults, like buliding damages, low bugdet, low level of parent involvement but overall it is a great school. The teaching staff is inproving with the hiring of younger teachers who can relate to the students more and the Acadmay. The Acadmay is a great school and gives the students who need a little higer levels so they can strive to be better and not just bored in the high school. Sports is a big thing in Armada, its one of the top proitys but I don't think thats a bad thing it keeps the students busy with after school activtives then out doing drugs or drinking. Armada is a great School I have sent all 3 of my kids there and they got a good education! Go Tigers!

Overall Armada is a good school system. As the kids enter into high school though, the system is not working well. There are students who work exceptionally hard and go to the academy for an advanced education in math and science yet the high school does not work well with these students. Because of this 'great academy' the students are not offered certain advanced classes at the high school that are needed for college. The 2 schools do not work well together and the students are the ones who are loosing out. As for the buildings, they are in need of so much repair it is not even funny. The sports seem to be the most important entity of there education. My children are in the sports and I feel it is important. But things need to be fixed and prioritized. Buildings need help and councelors need to start working together.

There are some great kids and teachers here but there are some issues that need attention. The school is in very poor shape, leaks fom ceiling, not enough books at times. The level of parent involvement seems rather low. Sports does not offer much for Jr. Varsity (like Girls Soccer)even though there were many girls whom showed interest in it! A swimming pool would be a nice addition. We have recently passed some new issues to put renovations in motion, but we need a new Middle and High School!

I am currently a student AHS and personally i think that this school isn't too great! the music program at the school is fairly alright. some of the equipment needs to be updated but runs alright with what they have. sports at this school do mean the most. yes the teams do good but they need to worry more about the education of the students. there isnt too much parent involvement but i personally dont think that is the schools fault. i think that its just that the parents find it unimportant. overall this school isn't the greatest one, we could do better! -AHS STUDENT-

The classes available at this school is horrible. We only have two A.P. classes available to us. Math classes only go up to Pre-Calc. Some of the teachers are an absolute joke. They sit at the front of the room and read right from the book without actually teaching. The labs in the science rooms are a good 15 years old. The library's book selection and computers badly need to be updated. There's quite a few broken chairs in the auditorium. The only thing that's really kept up on is the gym. Which figures, because sports are a higher priority than academics here.

Armada schools are good schools where the kids all know eachother.The only problem is they need more sports like swimming, lacrosse, and hockey.

Alrite, ive been going to this school all my life. The school it's self is in horrible condition and the staff isnt much better. The sports are great and so are the coaches. The students all know each other and there isnt many seperate groups that hang out with each other. there is a select few that are disrespectful. Our vocational classes are good, but lack support. Our auto shop needs new tools and lifts. It needs donor cars so we can actually work on different models instead of the same care over and over again. I wouldnt recomend this school.

I believe the Armada High School is a very good school for students to be they have good teachers who care, and the sports system is one of the best. The kids here do care about each other, and there is really no problems here with drugs and such.

I'm not saying all the students and teachers are awful tho.. theres a few that are awesome teachers and a some students are really nice...its just not a good school.

Our school is pretty good overall but there are some things that should be in the school such as a swim team. Most high schools have swim teams. And for some classes they should have better teaching methods, because some teachers move to fast to catch up with state requirements, thats why so many students have dropped out this year. Including some of my friends. And they need a better building. Not one that leaks during a storm. Not one that needs buckets under the roof, and they need to make bigger lockers. The middle school lockers are 2-3 times larger than ours and we can barely fit all of our books in them. And most of us can not fit our backpacks in them which causes a problem and also can relate to some health issues. Because carrying that much weight can injure your back. Thank you
