Aldine Sr. High is something. Some teachers are good with lessons to cover while some are not willing to show students learning. The administration team cares about dress code WAY TOO MUCH! The principal really cares about education and that's what I like about the principal but the rules are just really strict. Overall, this school does change personality, which some are not in a good way. However, Academics are good in terms with teaching the correct lesson term and their attitude. This school is okay however although way to many students move. The good part is the school is safe which matters more. Education is important but Safety is urgent at all time.
Review Aldine High School
My experience at this school was not the best. I had teachers who didn't seem very interested in their jod and would speak in a monotone while teaching or didn't try hard enough . This school has potential but the teachers need to try to understand each student learns differently and they should have a more diverse teaching style to catch our attention instead of the unconventional boring methods. The way schools have been teaching has not really evolved the way other things in this world has, I believe with enough motivation everyone can have more school spirit, which in this case, is lacking and has been for many years at Aldine High School . Some of the extracurricular activities in this schools are more well funded than others, which is not fair for the students who are passionate about what they do. Students should all have an equal opportunity in all fields and be able to have a voice about what makes them unhappy at this school.
I recently graduated from Aldine High School in June 2016. I would say it's a good school where teachers promote and advocate for education and are willing to help students succeed. However, administration could focus less on enforcing minor school violations such as dress code, and instead of focusing on disciplining students for such minor violations that have no effect on learning, they could use those efforts on collaborating better with teachers and creating more programs designed to help students.
