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!
One of the reasons that my family decided to move from Brooklyn Park, MN to Alexandria, MN was for a better education. The Alexandria Area High School was able to challenge and prepare me for college. Alexandria high school provided me with many resources that I would not have access to in Brooklyn Park and for that I am thankful. One thing that I would like to change about the school is the diversity. The school has a 96 percent white and only 4 percent other. Even with some small flaws Alexandria Area High School is a very good school and prepared me for my future.
