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.

The majority of the teachers I come in contact with are are knowledgeable in the subjects they teach and are concerned with the students success. There are many ways the teachers at my school make sure that communication with parents and students is on going. For example, each teacher has a webpage for the class they teach. All information, such as supply lists, assignments, and resource links are available. Other teachers use an app, similar to Facebook to list assignments and review for upcoming tests. I have also had a teacher who would text the class reminders and notify students when test scores were posted. Overall, i believe that the teachers at Alden High School are considerate, resourceful, and very helpful to all students in need of extra assistance.
As an LGBTQ+ student, I found my general experience at Alden fairly poor. Harassment isn't dealt with at all, I have even been told to "suck it up" when reporting harassment.
Certain administrators are even the perpetrators of the harassment.
