Poor teachers, poor administration, very little care for education. But, who can blame the teachers anyways when they already have tenure and low paying jobs? Want a teacher that won't teach? Go to Aberdeen High School! On the plus side, you do really get prepared for learning on your own.

The school spirit at our school is brilliant and we don’t have different groups like the seniors sticking together or just the cheerleaders sticking together, the students all come to together at school and encourage one another. The sports teams try their hardest at every game and the students cheer for their victory. The students at school are smart and brilliant and very welcoming of others. The teacher are unique in there own way and are their if you need extra help. Students at Aberdeen strive for success in each and every way either about sports or academics.
The science and math academy magnet program is a big part of why I love Aberdeen High School. The challenging coursework of this program alongside helpful and knowledgable teachers has prepared me greatly for college. Even teachers outside the program were helpful and genuinely doing everything they could to help the student succeed. The clubs and activities of this school were also treated respectfully and every club was, no matter how small was able to succeed. Aberdeen is also a very diverse community leading to a very diverse school and it was great to interact with people from some many backgrounds every day.
