Aberdeen High School is an amazing place to grow! It was a very diverse school with so many organizations to choose from. I was in the Orchestra, played tennis, cheerleaded and danced. The teachers are very supportive and kind. You can tell that they love their students and want to prepare them to be successful for the real world. They will give you that extra push to make sure that everyone graduates on time as well.

I wish the arts programs were as important to our principal as sports are. I also wish some of the teachers were a bit more kind and forgiving, but over all, I enjoy having most of my teachers. AHS should also figure out what students need early on because I'm currently taking two classes I was told I wouldn't need to take every year before my senior year, but once my senior year started, i had to switch out of a few classes I liked because my counselor told me that I wasn't on track for post secondary ed.
The teachers for the upper-level, AP courses were very obviously in that position for a reason. It was clear the difference in dedication, discipline and teaching styles that those teachers held over those who did not teach an advanced course. I do believe that there were some teachers in positions that would have been better filled by others, specifically within the magnet program within the school. It was very clique-y among those teachers, and borderline pretentious at times, which caused some struggling students to fall behind where it could have easily been avoided, and some beyond qualified teachers denied certain classes.
