Advertising Information for besthousingvalue

High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Air Academy High School is commonly referred to as AAHS. It is a public high school that serves the northwestern end of Colorado Springs. It is the only public high school built on military land and over 50 percent of its students are not associated with the air force. Known for high academic standards, Air Academy is situated in the foothills of the Front Range sitting at 6,200 feet above sea level. The sports mascot is the Kadet, a baby Falcon, which is meant to tie in with the Air Force Academy's mascot, the Falcon. Erik Fredell is the principal for AAHS.
The school was opened in 1956 on the grounds of the United States Air Force Academy for the 1956 to 1957 academic year before having its first commencement ceremony in 1958, making the class of 2007 the 50th graduating class. It was originally constructed as just one building which has come to be known as A. Through the years three more buildings were constructed to supplement the growing student population each with its own letter coding namely B, C and D. Being the oldest school in Academy School District 20 in Colorado Springs, it has grown over the past five decades to become a state-wide leader in academics, athletics and performing arts.
The school was awarded by Newsweek in 2004 and 2005 as being one of the top 1000 high schools in the country in terms of academic achievement. The school continues to acheive excellent rating on standardized tests. Housing two gymnasiums, a weight facility, a track, soccer, baseball, softball field, eight tennis courts and a football stadium, Air Academy boasts numerous varsity and junior varsity athletic teams competing in Colorado 4A and 5A sporting events. The mission of Air Academy High School is to provide an environment in which all students will acquire the necessary skills to become responsible thinkers who appreciate diversity and are productive citizens in their community.
