Welcome, Hawk Family!

My name is Peter Apple and it is my honor to serve as the principal of Ankeny High School. We are part of the greater Hawk Family where our traditions trace back over 100 years. Our school emphasizes living the HAWK Way – Honorable, Accountable, Willing, and Knowledgeable – for all of our staff and students. The emphasis on of the HAWK Way extends to our vision of empowering students to have voice, equity, and participation in their community. As part of the AHS Family, all members of our school community are encouraged to connect with staff members with any questions or suggestions for how we can make the AHS experience a positive and meaningful time for all students. #TrustFamilyBelieveHawks
