Auburn is such a great town!. It is peaceful and quiet. All the people are very loving and caring. The school system is wonderful. It provides many opportunities such as sports, arts, and etc. Most of all it is full of great teachers who come to work everyday to inspire and build future teachers, doctors, and lawyers. They devote their time to making sure all of their students are wise and aware of knowledge and even the challeges of life. They encourage their students to reach for the stars and be greater than they can imagine. I love my dear ole Auburn!
Our school has many ap classes to take so students can get chance to challenge on hard classes. Each class, we have nice teachers. Also bunch of club to join! I'm in physics club and key club which is community volunteering club. I volunteered on face painting this Halloween.
Personally, I enjoyed my time at the high school. I would not say it was the "time of my life," but it was something that will stick with me the rest of my life. I took all the opportunities my school offered to me by the horns, so I definitely made the most of my high school experience. 90% of my teachers were fabulous! I love each and every one of them. They will be people that I keep in contact with the rest of my life. Also, my principal, counselors, the book-keeper, janitorial staff; these people are wonderful. I have taken the time to get to know them and make a connection with them. I have three younger siblings who will also be attending the high in the coming years, so I will be at the high school every now and then for a while. I would definitely recommend Auburn High School to anybody who is decided between this school and another. The AP and IB classes are very good and so are the teachers for these courses. The special education at AHS is also very good. The sports are very diverse; of course we have football, but we also have lacrosse, swimming, wrestling, soccer, band, flag line, basketball, baseball, etc.
