Aloha High School Reviews
The high school experience it really all about the opportunities that one chooses to take advantage of, and in that regard my experience was about as good as it could be. I got involved in clubs, activities, cheer, and Student Leadership, and with those groups embraced the spirit and culture of Aloha with open arms. No matter what it was, my team and I were always able to bring together the extremely diverse student body of Aloha High School at dances, at football games, at school assemblies, and in the hours after school.
Aloha High School is overall a very good school to go to and the diversity is amazing. The academics are easy because we have many supporting teachers to help us out. The lunches are alright but could be better and the bathrooms could do better but it's basically a good school to go to.
Aloha high school is not a school I would recommend to incoming freshman. There is a lack in academics as well as culture and the overall preparedness for college.
Aloha High School is just like any other public school. It has class options for advanced students, average students, and below average students. Aloha has an incredible number of AP classes available to take. Students who take those classes are well prepared for college. Students who don't do AP are much less prepared.
Great staff. My counselor was very helpful, I struggled to get back on track when i left to mexico and came back late to school. She was able to help me through my struggle and help me graduate on time and teachers were very understanding as well. I love Aloha High School and their staff members.
The administration was very helpful. When I would go into the office for resources, I would be helped in a timely manner. Faculty is kind to students and overall school environment is enjoyable.
A wonderful place to attend High School, so much culture and ability to connect to make it truly feel like a family! A place filled with staff members who care and a place where you are safe to be you.
I absolutely love this school. I love that we are able to come together and the community is just great. I love how each of us have so much school spirit and each of us try to get involved in some way. One thing I would change is the security because people can just walk in to our school and sometimes students worry about their safety.
This school has been very a accepting community. I've been able to find what I enjoy doing and how I to do the things I want to do in life here. Most teachers care about their students and will take the time to get to know them.
Our school is so diverse and that’s what I love about most, it’s not about the color of your skin or what you where it’s about who you are and if there’s one thing my school knows how to do it’s coming together for our community. We raise thousands of dollars every year for the people in our very own community and it’s amazing to see everyone come together for the people around us.
The teachers and counselors are always willing to help. The administration is a little concerned with issues that aren't super important like going off campus for lunch rather than addressing current social issues with students.
Aloha has a good system for preparing students for post high school readiness and many volunteer opportunities, internships, and career related activities. They also offer a huge variety of AP and Dual credit courses. However, they can be pushy with students and expect a lot more from than they should. Exceptions typically aren’t made for students having a harder time, and PE especially is a pushy class. If a student is not fit to be working out, in most cases they don’t care. The school is also very strict, offering no open campus and signed notes from appointments to excuse absences.
There is so much diversity at Aloha! The faculty at Aloha has made it a priority to turn the school and community into a family. All races, sexual orientations, genders and religious affiliations are celebrated here. I moved away for a year and a half and had to attend a different high school during that time and I am so excited to be back. It is so open and welcoming. Aloha warriors are my family! (Plus they have a killer AP program with a bunch of different options!)
My experience at Aloha was fair. I had my up and downs with teachers and staff, some were understanding to my health others not so much. I would like to see a change in the hiring of a better teaching staff that is more involved in how students learn and trying multiple ways to teach.
I am currently attending Aloha High School. I am a junior and have enjoyed going there. I love the teachers there. They are so fun and full of energy. Although I kinda want to see more clubs added in the future I think it has a good amount of resouces and sports available.
My experience at Aloha High School was amazing. At aloha I was able to learn in a very supportive environment at the same time as I was being pushed to always be my best. The staff at Aloha genuinely care about each student and that helped to create an environment us students could really thrive in. My favorite memory of Aloha was how much support we got from not only our teachers, but our community as well. We had multiple fundraisers per year raising money for families and children in need. My experiences at Aloha have taught me so much about hard work and persevering through whatever challenges I am faced with.
Aloha High school has a strong sense of community. There is not much of the stereotypical popularity, instead people accept and respect others despite the differences we may have. Aloha also offers a wide variety of classes that prepares students for college. Most of the teachers are passionate and truly good at their job. They form good relationships with their students so we are not afraid to ask for help if we need it. The only changes I would like to see would be structural changes. Though Aloha is a wonderful school, it has a bad reputation for being "poor" and "bad at the important sports." I wish the bathrooms and sport fields could receive the funding they need to be renovated. I attend a couple classes at Beaverton High School too and I can see a HUGE difference between the funding of the two schools, despite them both being the "poorer" schools of the district. Even though Aloha High School has a bad reputation, it should still receive funding to renovate.
Very good community, leadership team. Sports teams never really win. Bullying still happens and it doesn't get fixed without parent involvement.
Aloha, is quite an old high school. Therefore, it does not look as fancy or new compared to other schools. We are known to have the most students on free/reduced lunch in the district, however, we are also well known for our spirit. Many students from schools would always want to come to our homecomings and events because of how well prepared and decorative they are. We have a Sparrow child every year and raise thousands of dollars. Another "tradition" is raising money for Holiday Sharing. Holiday Sharing is about supplying our current and old sparrow families, as well as, 10 families in our community that do not have stable money to use during the holidays or regularly. We raised over $10,000 this year and usually raise more than $8,000 each year. Even though, Aloha is poor, we have spirit and I love that I am a part of it.
Aloha High School has great community-involvement and spirit. College readiness isn't always the best, but with lots of great teachers and resources, it sure comes close.
