Annapolis High School

2700 Riva Road

The energy and enthusiasm of its staff and students characterize Annapolis High School. The climate of the school empowers students to excel in a positive learning environment created by its hallmark program known as T.E.A.M. Days. Over 100 dedicated and student leaders lead this annual full day program of student prepared and presented workshops for over 600 participants. .

Annapolis High School offers 21 Advanced Placement courses, the most offered in Anne Arundel County. Student AP test scores consistently place the school among the top three schools in the county. The average SAT scores of students are consistent with federal standards for schools with rigorous academic programs and are above county, state, and national norms. Annapolis boasts five commended students as well as eight Maryland Distinguished Scholars. In 1999, Annapolis was one of only five high schools to receive honorable mention in the state Blue Ribbon Schools Program.

The school is engaged in a project to create a Nature Trail and Learning Center for the entire community in cooperation with Anne Arundel County Parks Department. Students have undertaken the challenge of creating theme murals in all of the school lavatories to re-enforce the commitment to the environment. Science classes are engaged in controlling soil erosion and in starting model watershed areas and habitats for local fish.

There is a school wide writing program to promote writing skills across the curriculum. Similarly, the school has created an enhanced environment for reading with its new Reading Café in the media center. Annapolis High is slated to receive 300 new Pentium computers with school-wide internet access over the next three years to complement the 250 plus computers currently in use.

I went Annapolis high 25 years ago and I was stabbed 17 times in a row every other day. But now all that’s happened is 1 stabbing and a 22 on the bus. I personally feel that panther hour is a wonderful institution which give young scholars an opportunity to learn. We should keep panther hour.

AHS is a very diverse High School. If your child enjoys sports, clubs, art,'s all here. There is something here for everyone. Please don't let the negative comments or press discourage you from coming here. We have nothing but great things to say about all the teachers and the staff. Not only are they accommodating, but truly care about your child. We almost went to a private school and we are so very thankful that we gave it a try. It exceeded all our expectations and more. Like all public/private schools, you will find things that need to be improved, but I assure you, it's a safe place. I have the utmost confidence that the staff and principal do everything in their power to assure a safe learning environment. Give it a try and don't listen to what others say about it. Try it out for yourself. If it doesn't work for your child, you can always find another option, but what if it does........
