The first time that I enter that school it was three years ago from now and just came from Congo. That school has show me how people can be united even that we are not from the same country or don't look the same, I was well welcome in that school and has learn a lot. And I'm just really think full & pround to be a student of allderdice high school and if you ask me if what can I change about that school? I will say nothing because that school is perfect the way it is .
Review Allderdice High School
I loved it there! Most of my best experiences was from Allderdice. I had no issues there. Everyone was very helpful from the security to the lunch ladies. I had a few problems there but it was nothing to ruin my opinion about the high school.
Not all teachers are the same, so labeling them under one category is not effective. There are a lot of great teachers amongst the not so good ones. Speaking highly of certain teachers, their classrooms felt like home. They were not only easy to talk to whenever they were needed, but they also did everything they felt necessary to help you succeed. They did not give handouts; they pushed you to your potential they knew you had!
