Our mission is to prepare AHS students to be lifelong learners and responsible citizens in the community through a comprehensive program that will meet their academic, personal, social and career needs. Through the counseling process, the counselors will develop a purposeful, reciprocal relationship in which the individual student can better understand him/herself in relation to his/her present and future problems. Through a greater understanding of self, changes can and will occur in the individual’s attitudes and behavior.
