Welcome to the Arkansas City High School - Home of the Bulldogs!
Arkansas City High School has a long, proud tradition of excellence as reflected by the thousands of graduates serving in distinguished positions across the United States. ACHS is a comprehensive high school that provides a broad spectrum of high quality classes, programs and activities. Our mission is to create a learning community that promotes the pursuit of excellence while preparing students to be productive and successful citizens.
The challenge for this generation of students is to develop a knowledge base that will allow them to thrive in a technologically sophisticated world. The ability to read well, write fluently, understand mathematical concepts and utilize technology is more important now than ever in one’s career field. Two years ago we began creating with our freshmen ten year plans for the purpose of helping them “get real” with the skills and knowledge they needed to master in order to gain entrance to their college or career choice.
This school year we will be using these plans more closely than ever. We are pleased that a record number of ACHS students will be taking dual enrollment classes with a clear focus on preparing for their choice of career. We are very pleased with our working relationship with Cowley College. Living in Arkansas City and having access to a college that works closely with us is of great benefit to our students and in the achievement of their life goals.
