Allderdice is my home away from away. Although I will be sad to end my journey there, I am excited to begin my new adventure in life . I learned so much through my high school career at Allderdice. Allderdice has provided me with the necessary Skill to become a productive citizen. I was always encouraged to do my best, and given the academic support to do so. I also enjoyed my many extracurricular activities at Allderdice including Global Minds. This was a great way to reach out to the Non-English speaking students and help them to adjust to our school community, and provide them with the support they need. I have learning a great deal deal at Allderdice and I look forward to happy and successful college experience.

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 a very tight nit community and was a really enjoyable high school experience for me. Almost every one of my teachers were super relatable and easy to talk to, as well as being a great educator the teacher really made my time at Allderdice wonderful. It is an insanely diverse school which was one of the reason it attracted me to go there. I made a wonderful and supportive group of friends that allowed me to get through the hard parts of high school a lot easier. I wouldn't change schools f i ever got the chance.
