The teachers are all very welcoming and they genuinely care about your future. The building could use some updates. Overall, I loved my time at Aitkin High School and everybody prepared me for college life.

Aitkin may be a smaller town, but it has so many great teachers! Everyone is helpful and makes an effort to ensure every student can succeed.
The teachers are great. The building is not so great. The school could use some improvements or a new building. Class sizes are about 20-30 people. They offer College-In-The-School classes for Jr and Sr's which is nice. I graduated high school with 50 college credits.
