Website Speed Issue

I'd say you need to optimise the entire site before thinking amp is the solution to your problems. I had the loading wheel on my desktop and I'm on an 80Mbps line so I'd hate to think what it's like on 3G mobile.

AMP will not help. AMP allow google to cache news stories on their server so they can be displayed when someone searches for that news. Implementing AMP on your site just allows Google to extract the data, it doesn't make you site any faster.

If you want a faster site you first need to sort out your hosting. Time to first byte isn't good. Use gzip and caching and see if there are any weird redirections.

Next up is to fix all the things Google suggests: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=https://cestarhighschool.com/

I'd also consider using a different theme. Bootstrap is now very dated and clunky and there are a whole bunch of scripts and styles slowing things down. But the main culprit seems to be all those images - nearly 1Mb on the homepage.

If you want a faster site: send less data and use decent hosting.

Test your site speed. Before you do anything else, you should test how fast your mobile site really is.
You might think it loads just fine, but it could be slower than you think. One of the best mobile tests is from Think With Google: Enter your URL into the search bar and click “Test Now.” You’ll want to enter your regular URL and not your mobile URL if you have one (e.g., m.site.com).

I think GTmetrix has some feedback that PageSpeed doesn't provide, but Google's tool is easier overall and has a better user experience; also offers compressed images, CSS, and javascript files if that's the case. Also, Google has extensive documentation to help you better understand what can be done to improve your grade.

No it's not!

Please read the AMP documentation. AMP will not make your site faster.

Please check the olx website, they are using AMP technology,And Amazingly its pretty much faster.
And I'm sure they've done a lot of other optimisations to the code to make it faster too.... (although I'll be honest and the site code looked pretty untidy to my untrained eyes)
I'm also pretty sure they'll be using decent backend servers so the data can get the browser etc as fast as possible.

AMP isn't the 'fix everything' cure to a poorly designed and coded website.

Please read the AMP specifications. AMP only applies to search results on mobile phones. AMP delivers pre-rendered pages on your phone. People looking at an AMP page don’t even visit your website. Ergo, AMP will not make your site faster.
