Principal's Welcome

Dear AFSE Community:


It is an honor and privilege to continue this journey with all of you.  The success of the school has always been the result of all stakeholders making important contributions in support of student achievement.   Your support is critical in fulfilling our vision to prepare each student for success after high school.


We will continue build on and strengthen what makes AFSE an exceptional educational experience included below:

  • Mastery-Based Learning:  Teachers have refined their curriculum to engage students in critical skills and have developed assessments that provide feedback on progress to support student growth.  
  • Mentoring & Advisory:  Through advisory and iMentor students will continue to receive guidance on college and career, gain awareness of college and career options, and benefit from the guidance of a caring adult.  
  • Restorative Justice: In order to build a strong and supportive community in which all community members are heard, seen and valued, and participate in a community founded on trust and respect, structures have been put in place for diverse perspectives to be shared and conflicts resolved in safe settings.
  • College & Career Initiative: Our robust initiative ensures that students and families are well-informed about the college process, including completing the application and financial aid, as well as options for career, through College Night, Advisory, One Goal and iMentor.


I believe that strong schools are strong communities.  I encourage all of you to stay informed and remain engaged in activities throughout the year.  The feedback and input of staff, parents and students is essential to serving the academic, social and emotional needs of our students.  


Through our work together, we will ensure that graduates are informed of options, possess the requisite skills to be competitive, and feel empowered to realize a bright future.  


I look forward to our partnership and your input as we work together to further and continue the success of AFSE.

Sincerely ,

Shawn Raeke
