Academically, Algonquin is excellent. The teachers are invested in their students and are passionate about their curriculum. For the past four years, every single teacher I have had, has been great! The course selection is very diverse, allowing me to take subjects such as criminal justice, fashion, and silent voices. The school also has a great sports culture, with the bleachers always filled with cheering students. Sadly the student body isn't very diverse. The school is quite sheltered from "real life" and the issues you may face if you live in a more urban environment.

For the most part, Algonquin is a great school. It offers a wide variety of classes in every subject, and many of the teachers use effective methods to make sure that students understand the content and are successful. Most of the sports teams other than football and boys' basketball receive very little attention, however, despite there being several other teams. Additionally, the administration tends to make errors with issues such as bus routes and attendance.
Algonquin Regional is unique. It is supportive, academically challenging and rich in traditions. Our division 1 sports teams all support each other and are very successful, the success comes from hard work and determination. Algonquin offers a variety of clubs and organizations. Our music and arts departments are top notch and have won many awards. When entering the grounds at Algonquin Regional you can;t help but see the beauty of the well maintained sports fields that spread for many acres. You will often see many community members taking advantage of the various fields around the school.
