SCHOOL + FAMILY AT AHB

A Progressive School Where Parents Matter

Parents play a pivotal role in their child’s education. AHB Community School began as a homeschool coop and continues to capitalize on parental involvement. Beyond community events and the Board of Directors, AHB includes parents in the educational journey. Here, families drive student goals inside and outside the classroom and contribute to their success.
