GREAT SCHOOL! The principal Mr. Robinson is one of the best things to happen to AHS! He cares about students and school morale. The pride this school has in sports and the community is unparalleled! The teachers are nice, caring, and want students to succeed! Every day AHS is improving and adding on, so proud to have graduated from this school, and definitely planning to teach in this community after college!

Azle High School in Azle Texas. Students and Staff represent high morals and UNITY. Good attitude about Diversity as well. Student body has a great deal of respect for the handicap. AISD is very involved one can tell by their outstanding updates on their website. Local paper continues to report high achievements from this school.

I went to AHS, moving to the district from Boswell. I liked AHS MUCH better. The students AND faculty were much friendlier, less cliquish, and personable. The principle knew me personally, and the teachers knew my name and really cared about me. I was not a popular athlete, but I still felt welcome in the school. When I went to college, I felt prepared, and was prepared more than many of my college classmates. There were several extra-curricular activities to choose from. I often stayed after school for those activities and learned so much from them. There were some great teachers there who prepared me for college and really cared.

I have a daughter that will be a Jr. in the 2011-2012 school year. She has attended Azle schools all her life. The academics are on par with other schools in the area and I'm happy with what she is learning and taking away. The athletic programs are on an upswing for the most part with the addition of an athletic director this past year. There is a lot of room for improvement needed in the facilities as well as athletic departments. Overall, I am happy that we chose to rase our kids in Azle. I think having a new principal coming in with new ideas and insights will re-energize as well.

Azle HS has come a long way. The education programs have evolved quite nicely and the students are more involved and interested in being a part of the Azle HS heritage now. The athletic department is in a growing phase currently and will hopefully become once again the high level department it once was. Programs outside of football are now getting more attention and successes. The principal has retired at this point and a new head of the school will be in place for the 2011-12 school year. This should bring about new thoughts, ideas, and processes which will allow for a better educational moment for both teachers and students.

Concur with the previous reviews. Especially noteworthy is the one from 10/3/06. This is more of a tradition now instead of a history. First of all, there are some great teachers, students, and programs here. The programs that do stand out, only do so for a short time. Program heads are either chased away or leave for similar jobs with better salaries and working conditions. AHS is primed for acceleration to greater heights and would do so under better leadership at the principal and district level. There must be a reason 6 out of 11 principals "retired" or "moved on" last year.

I had 2 kids that graduated from Azle and attended Azle schools from Kindergarten on. This school does the minimum possible and the administrators don't listen. Unless you are involved in sports or are a troublemaker, the administration and staff does not know your name. My kids are very successful in college, but I say it is not because of Azle, but despite Azle. Teachers are hired based on if they are coaches or not. History and some other subjects are reserved for coaches so they can teach the required 1 class, so this wonderful subject is reserved for unmotivated teachers who would rather be out on the field than in the classroom. Unqualified teachers are hired instead of better qualified and if you are related to someone already hired...you are in no matter what. Azle High only does the basic reqired by law. Find a better school.

An all around great school. My child learned so much and made so many wonderful friends. The staff and faculty are extremely kind. All the kids are well behaved and polite. My daughter went to this school and had the best experience here. It's hard to find a school that is equivalent to AHS. I would send and teenager there in a heartbeat. The school itself is clean and well kept. No litter, or vandalizations. Absolutely wonderful. I rate it higher than a five!

Real thinking is too difficult to measure and control, so Azle is an uncomfortable place for thinkers. The high-quality teachers are not supported (financially or otherwise), so there are very few left. The administrators do not know how to be pro-active, so their management skills consist of harassing and humiliating the students. The culture of fear the current administrators have established is not conducive to learning. SAT scores of graduates remain low. Both my children were successful at Azle, but they learned little.

I went to this school 2 years ago. I had to drop out because I had a baby, cause I did not listen in school. This does not make this a bad school. I just did not listen. There are some really fun activities and teachers and staff, and they really try hard to teach these kids things.

Azle is a terrible school by all standard measures. It has mediocre teachers, an apathetic student body, and inept administrators. If you have the well-being and emotional stability of your child in mind, this school should not even be considered an option.

I think some of these teachers are just here for the money. But I have to admit, I dont blame them. The world revolves around money.

I am curretnly a student at Azle High School and also am in basketball. I think that Azle High School has a good quality of teachers that teach you what you need to know to make it in the real world. I also think that the extra curriular activities are great they have a million different clubs to join and a million different sports to play if you like that kind of thing. I give Azle High School a great rating.
