I've enjoyed attending Alexandria Area High School for the past three years. As a new high school, it's extremely involved with its students and the community, and they're always looking for new ways to improve even more. I find this school to be very open to any student; it's easy to discover what your passions are so you can make the right career choice, and you can easily make friends with similar interests. They also have lots of great programs for students to enroll in; from fine arts to agriculture, and from business to health sciences. It's a great school to attend!

Beautiful built school with the newest advances in technologies to help the students grow in their learning to the best of their ability. Provides a welcoming and competitive environment. During my time at Alexandria Area High School, I felt challenge to do my best everyday. The faculty at AAHS did their best to ensure we were getting the most out of the curriculum and incorporated immersion to what the students would be experiencing in the work field. This helped the students see where they wanted to continue their future and the school was able to build their curriculum off of the student's wishes.
I am currently a senior here at Alexandria Area High School. Our academies and block schedule days are as new as our new building. The freshmen have an "academy" where they each have one block dedicated to figuring out their passions, practicing their education, and looking ahead at what they want to focus on. At the end of freshmen year everyone has to choose between three academies which each offer many electives that specifically help students gain education that will directly apply to their career of interest. From welding machines to Mac labs to CNA labs the entire school is built around partnering with local businesses and being focused on your future. Each academy has an adviser that helps you personally. The staff are friendly and the facility is amazing. The only thing I would change would be the ability for students finished with college, college open blocks, or a.p. classes to be able to leave the building when their work is completed.
