I graduated from Anoka. The school has mediocre academics and athletics. The reason to stay away, would be the teachers. There are a select FEW teachers who are awesome at their jobs. The rest are burnt out, checked out, and otherwise inappropriate. I have witnessed teachers be verbally and PHYSICALLY abusive with students. I have also seen that behavior get barely a slap on the wrist. AHS is NOT a healthy environment to form children into the adults they're becoming.
