Allderdice High School Reviews
I liked allderdice's diversity. There were people from all over there and knowing that everyone there was different made it comfortable. I love how enthusiastic everyone is about the sports. Everybody supported you there no matter if it was a dance battle in the hall of for finals you need help studying for. I loved how the school was big enough for you to have your own space but not to the point where everyone was strangers. The teachers were all so nice too, they pushed you to always do your best no matter what. Everyone wanted to see you succeed there! i highly recommend allderdice for everyone!
Allderdice is cool because of the many different people from many different places coming together to learn. There’s people from all over the world and supporting many different religions and beliefs. The school spirit is crazy during sporting events...and our alumni has Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller. Also, we bonded together as students when the horrible shooting occurred in Pittsburgh just blocks from our school. We showed adversity and power as a school to help people who were grieving and couldn’t help themselves. That’s why allderdice is a great place and much more than just a place to learn.
Taylor Allderdice was an interesting experience for sure. The classes that are offered are excellent and you can truly get an excellent education in that school, but the school certainly has some problems. One of the main problems is the fact that there is no air conditioning and summer days in Pittsburgh can get up to around 90 degrees. Another problem is that the school isn't maintained very well, as the rooms are frequently dirty and seeing a roach is not uncommon. The nickname "dirty dice" is not incorrect. Despite its problems, I loved my time at Allderdice, with excellent sports teams, a great education available, and a diverse group of students and teachers.
