Aberdeen High School has a strong commitment to excellence inside and outside of the Community. Home of the Aberdeen Eagles, a place you go if you want to be pushed both academically and as a student. Whether you're born and raised in Aberdeen or just visiting, the presence of spirit and bleeding Blue and Gold is evident. The school is known for excelling in STEM, yet, it is important to note that outside of its excellent academics, is a student body full of diverse, passionate, driven individuals who come together to advance not only Aberdeen but the community it makes its commitment evident to. Whether that be through our strong military presence or through post-secondary education. I can say the moment you step into the Eagles' Nest to the moment you set flight outside of those walls, nothing but greatness awaits. Aberdeen our Alma Mater, praise to the we sing.

As a former student at Aberdeen High School, I can say that it did a lot of things well. The Science And Mathematics Academy (SMA) that they offer is probably what their best known for, and it is a great program. The program has special teachers that educate the top 50 math/science students in the county at a higher level than other kids are taught. These teachers are honestly a step above the rest, but even better; SMA alum are introduced firsthand into internship oppurtunities that I've seen last many years. If you don't attend the SMA, the school becomes average. Average teachers, average clubs, etc. The students are ethnically diverse, violence is held to an absolute minimum, and I have not found any major cases of bullying during my time there.
Abereen High School is a school with a diverse population filled with opportunity. Options for classes range from rigorous APs's to fun cooking classes, but most include teachers who like their job and love the students. Although not all the teachers are the greatest at their jobs and should be pushing students more while others have unrealistic expectations; however, this combination of extreme rigor and relaxed environments allows for an optimal learning environment.
