Anderson High School (Shetland)
|Motto||Dö Weel and Persevere|

The AHS is the largest school in Shetland with around 80 staff and about 800-900 pupils from age 11 to 18.
Pupils transfer to the AHS from both local primary schools and remote island primary schools. Pupils also transfer from Junior High Schools after S4 (age 16), leading to more pupils in S5 than in S4. Until recently, Scottish Qualifications Authority statistics based S5 exam results as a proportion of the S4 roll, leading to statistical anomalies.
In 2005, the school was awarded Schools of Ambition status.
