How Will Admission Officers Know the Limitations of My High School?

Question: I was wondering how college admissions weigh the school you went to, and whether they probably know anything about random public schools. For example, I go to my default public school in my area, and I am taking all the AP classes we offer (except for Art History, I'm a future science major). However, that is only 7 classes total, and I know that compared to prep schools, that is not great.

Also, in each of the classes, I have gotten high A+s (99s, 100s) in each AP/Honors class before honor points were added, making every one of my final grades be above 100% numerically. Would this actually look bad on college admissions because it would make our AP/Honors programs look non-rigorous?
