I once saw a map of Fort Worth in a book called "Judgemental Maps" and on the map Aledo was labeled "Parents who think their kids are too good for Fort Worth schools". I laughed at how accurate this was! I was my third high School I went to and the only word to describe this school is extravagant! The academics were generally very productive and enjoyable as well as the teachers. The athletics were top ranking in almost every sport although I never involved myself with any because they did not offer my sport (Lacrosse). My only complaint is the diversity, generally all of the students were well educated, white upper middle class who were very sheltered. Although even with this fact, I found it very easy to make friends and everyone was very accepting!

The staff is so amazing, and they are always striving to bring out the best in the student body, but one thing that I could criticize my district on would be the distribution of funds between the programs in the school. Having been in band since 6th grade, I understand the struggles we have consistently endured to raise money and support for the band program. With most of the districts funds going to the football program, other programs are having trouble obtaining money for simple necessities. Another example of the unequal distribution of funding is found within the theater department. For the last production, students had to personally cover the costs of costumes and props. Is this really the way it should be if we want the students to truly enjoy what they may be going into a career in? Yes all 3 programs mentioned are successful. But without sufficient funding, the artists withing the fine arts programs are struggling to unlock their full potential.
Aledo is a great school in most ways. The only thing I wish was different was the way the administration approaches its students. I feel that the requests of the students should be taken more seriously rather than threatened or punished. Students weren't allowed to decorate their graduation caps, a tradition that thousands of schools all over the country participate in. The principle refused to even discuss the matter despite the pleas of multiple students.
