The different opportunities that we had at Aledo were one of a kind, such as where we got to go or do for activities that we participated in. Some of the teaching was fantastic, and I have passed 2 of my AP tests so far. However, some of the teaching is also quite terrible, and I now despise math after having bad upon bad math teachers, for example. The school is too caught up in the "glory" of their football team for any other sport or organization to even be considered. Instead of getting new uniforms for any other team that desperately needed them, a large chunk of funding went to building a giant scoreboard that you can see from about half a mile away. Football comes first, and the teachers are biased towards the players. The coaches are even worse, and pick and choose their favorites and give them opportunities to shine whether they deserve it or not, and the rest are left sitting the bench so to speak.

At Aledo High School, I really appreciate the fact that they encourage every student to choose a career pathway. For example, I am on the health care pathway so by the end of my high school experience I will be a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant. One thing that I would change about Aledo High School is the school's diversity. In Aledo I feel like there is not as much diversity as there is in a school further in the metropolitan area. I feel like more diversity could enhance my learning experience by exposing me to new cultures, religions, and ethnicities.
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!
