  • Who to Contact

    It's always our goal at AFHS to be responsive to any need.  The links below should take you to key resources and information.

    • Who is my counselor?

    Counselors are divided into specific caseloads.  One counselor work with the same students and are assigned by students last name in the alpha. This ensures a strong transition to high school and an opportunity for the students and counselors to get to know eachother through graduation.   CLICK HERE to view the counselor assignments and others within Student Services who can assist you.  Note that counselors are out during the summer with the exception of our Dean of Students, Ms. Kari Kite, who is happy to help with any question.
