I love Auburn High School. The sports are top notch and the people ate the nicest in a school that I have ever met. There is definitely diversity which is a great way learn more about people. Everybody is friendly and I have never been bullied here. They do have glass walls, which can be nice for some outside sun to get in, but I'm unsure about the safety precautions. The academics are amazing, it's challenging but just enough so you actually learn more and you are still able to do good. There are a lot of different clubs that you can join, just about any you can think of. They have a very, very nice and (now) a brand new facility. It's clean and well kept. They have good resources and I'm able to get things done. I'm so glad I went here! I would want to go nowhere else!

As an alum of Auburn High School, I can say that my experience was excellent. The academic opportunities that was presented to me and fellow classmates were outstanding. Being able to take courses that challenged me and make me think outside of the box was great! At Auburn High, I saw great leadership qualities from teachers, students,as well as parents. I am so proud to be an alum from this credible high school.
I am a proud Auburn High School student who loves being involved, and AHS gives students of all kinds this opportunity. I am the captain of the girl's golf team, and the support and encouragement given to our athletic teams and clubs by the teachers and administrators is outstanding. Not to mention, the new building is immaculate and such a beautiful and bright learning environment. I feel like I am going to be prepared for college too because of the wonderful academics and the wide variety of classes offered. Overall, I love my school, and I believe Auburn High School is one of the best schools in the country!
