Question and Answer with Principal Hill
With all students, grades 7-12, now having a laptop, how has this helped progress the students education?
Laptops aren't a "silver bullet" that will fix all the issues students and teachers are faced with in education. it is, however, another valuable tool that can open new avenues of success. The more tools we can give our students and teachers allows them to move towards our ultimate goal.
Every teacher/administrator has a philosophy in which they seek to attain, what do you feel are the most important aspects for students to be successful here at AJHS?
I truly believe that as students mature and move up through the grades they are constantly expanding their network of support. This network is made up of teachers both past and current, parents, community members, other school personnel, and friends that help them in their educational journey. Research proves that the small school setting is the most effective way to educate students. Having smaller classes, fewer in organizations and on teams, allows for a smaller ratio of students to stakeholders within these networks. As a result, students have a scaffold of people and groups buying in to their success. When students get involved in various activities this builds upon their sprawling network helping them achieve in the many aspects of school life.
