I really don't know where to begin. First of all, for a teacher to tell my wife and I, that our child only needs "survival skills" to get along in life, is totally an unacceptable attitude for a teacher. The principal of the school, agreeing with this teacher, telling us he backs up his teachers! The teachers do not care what happens to the students, just as long as they get that pay raise! I think it rates just about as bad as Springfield public schools, if not worse!

Auburn tries to put on the appearance of changes year by year. Much of this, however, is a facade. Teachers here can be good about being your friend but when it comes down to education it is largely lacking. They offer no duel credit classes and while they have developed a good science department, other areas are lacking in adequate options. They have some great coaches but there is sometimes too much of a focus on athletics, and athletes sometimes are allowed to get away with too much. Second chances are necessary but the school definitely has problems when it comes to disciplining its students; especially that they don't do anything about the clear vaping problem. The school needs to do a lot of changing. It isn't the worst in the area by far, but with better options of similar class sizes nearby like Williamsville and Rochester, they are not the most appealing option.
The school has a lot of Advanced Placement classes for advanced students who are looking to continue their education in college. The teachers and staff seem to be more worried about being the students’ friends instead of instilling school and classroom rules. Bullying is a big problem at this school and there has been multiple suicides in the community due to bullying. The school is and has always been very clichés. The Football program led by Coach Bates is top notch, but a lot of the money allocated for sports goes to the football program before other sports. They do offer Baseball, Softball, Volleyball, Golf, and Girls Soccer as well as cheerleading. The School district also tries their best to stay towards the top as far as technology and current curriculum goes, but as many schools in Illinois they can only do so much since the state is behind on all their education payments.
