Loved it. I had the best time in high school. A lot of the teachers are amazing, and the facilities are better than most colleges. Great opportunities to be involved in the arts, academics, and athletics. Also, there are so many different clubs that students are always given ways to make themselves as involved as possible. Superb high school education!

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!
With the new high school being built my freshman year of high school, a lot more options for preparing for my career or passions opened up. They have wonderful programs to help prepare you for whatever you are interested in!
