Alden Senior High School Reviews

Alden has been the home of my education from kindergarten to my senior year. I have had innumerable abilities to grow, learn and participate at school or with my school. In school I feel extremely safe due to the execution of regular drills and frequent updates to my family during times of crisis. The teachers and faculty at Alden are extremely friendly and allow one on one interaction with the students to form comfortable relationships. My coach has pushed me to keep going and understands my limits and abilities. In the future I would like to see Alden incorporate FFA and anatomy classes in the curriculum for students. Without these classes I feel that all of my interests are not available in school. I do aplaud Alden with the vast amount of college and AP classes available for all students accepting a challenge. I have had countless opportunities to make myself a better athlete, student and person. I hope others can see this and are as satisfied with Alden as my family and I are.

During my four years at Alden Senior High School, I have learned many valuable things. The teachers are friendly and are committed to teaching every student the material they need to pass. Each student learns differently and the teachers are well-aware of this. To help every student the teachers will stay on a certain topic until every student is comfortable with the material.

The teachers make learning fairly easy and will even stay after with students who are in need of help. Before students take their exams the teachers make sure that their students were taught all current material needed to know to pass the exam and the class.

Alden is a comfortable district to be educated in.
All together, Alden is a very snug and companionable community, with a total population of a little over 10,000 community members within it. Being such a welcoming and small area, the schools are just as personal. Because of the graduating class of about 130, close relationships form not only between students, but as well as teachers, guidance counselors and even the principle. Not only are the people within the school friendly, but the school itself is prominent. Alden Senior High school offers a variety of extracurricular activities including; Oceanography, Creative Writing, Computer Applications, Black and White Photography and Sculpture and Ceramics, only naming a few. Having the opportunity to experience the various courses assists students in discovering what they like or dislike participating in. Overall, Alden School District provides a immense amount of opportunites for all members of the community.
