Senior High School
Band Camp is in full swing at the high school! This year’s theme is all about Billy Joel, and the band is well on their way to learning their field positions. While we’re under “Pressure” to finish the show and it’s hot outside, the senior drum majors want everyone to know that “We Didn’t Start the Fire,” and “working too hard can give you a heart attack-ack-ack-ack-ack.” The band’s performance calendar can be found at bridgerband.com.

We would like to thank all the parents, guardians, students and staff members that helped make the First Annual Transition night a wonderful success at Ambridge Area High School! We would also like to thank all the agencies and speakers that attended to help contribute to the night! As the night consisted of planning future academic areas and pathways that included our Beaver County Career and Technology Center, Trades, Advance Placement and Dual Enrollment classes, we were thrilled to see the students excited and invested in their futures while learning about their future academic/career curriculums! On behalf of the Ambridge Area School District, we are excited to see where all the wonderful future plans will take your student as we continue to welcome the upcoming class of 2022 to the High School!

Freshman Orientation: Parents and guardians will be able to explore and review expectations at the high school, understand graduation and class requirements in addition meet all high school staff while walking through their student’s schedules. Details on the dates will follow!
We once again would like to thank the parents/guardians, students, community agencies and staff for taking time to explore the High School curriculum as we continue to prepare for a wonderful future of academics and career explorations! Best wishes at this time for a wonderful Holiday break!

Students in Ms. Hapich’s AP Calculus and Algebra I classes enjoyed an Hour of Code today in honor of Computer Science Week. Students were able to choose from a list of many different activities, from creating your own Google Doodle to recreating scenes from the movie Wonder Woman using coding with blocks. The typical atmosphere of finding derivatives and solving equations was replaced with sounds of the Piano App, Minecraft and Star Wars scenes, and Flappy Bird.
