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 has wonderful arts programs. The jewelry classes were my favorite part at the high school. The schools also provides a variety of electives for students to take. The school has decent sport teams. The school provides advanced course for students to take. The principal is very strict with his rules, there are less and less fights but kids will be kids. The student population is very diverse and friendly for the most part but there are still a few mean kids. I have made many friends at this school that will hopefully be my friends for life. The school hired some wonderful teachers who care for their students. Unfortunately the school gets very hot in the summer due to no air conditioning or fans , but the school is very old. They also serve terrible food in the cafeteria, the school lunches are disgusting. I recommend bringing something to eat from home or buying a snack from the vending machine or snack line.
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.
