    As a public school with an open enrollment, AHS is truly an excellent school that prepares our children to succeed at the next level. Both of our kids are AHS graduates. The older daughter finished her degree at UC Berkeley and is now pursuing her MBA at NYU. The younger son completed his double degrees at UC Irvine and is now a first year law student at USC. WE are really grateful for AHS for a job well done.
