Principal's Message

AJHS Family,

I want to start by bragging on our 8th grade students and our staff for three great days of ACAP testing this past week! They have put a lot of work in leading up to this assessment and they handled it beautifully.

Progress reports went home with all students during first block on Friday. We are now officially in the homestretch of the school year. Please remind your student to finish strong!

Spread the Word

We will attempt to get information out to our students and families in many different ways. Although SchoolCast is great tool to get information out quickly, many of our stakeholders "see and forget" these messages. Please help spread the word to follow AJHS on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. I also think that many people would rather see or watch than read. FB allows us to post short video message tutorials and announcements. Thanks!

Our students are all over the Instagram account. They will make you feel super popular with all of the likes!
