As someone who worked at the beginning to help found this school, the original mission of AWP, to provide a higher standard of education and character development in order to build up the next generation was very inspiring.
This year’s volleyball team was unlike no other. The team really bonded in such an intimate way, a kind of bond that hasn’t been seen in years. Although there were heartbreaking losses, there was never a game where we did not pour out our hearts on the court.
