Auburn High School is a welcoming place for everyone of every background. Teachers, staff, and administrators are extremely helpful in more ways than one. The Auburn High choir program is a well run program however I wish more people took it more serious as I was in choir all 4 years and got to experience some amazing music and adventures during my time. Auburn High needs more school spirit, if that sounds like you then it’s your place to be!

I am on my last year of high school at Auburn and I love the school so much! There is so much diversity and culture that is added every year. This school is very modern since there are technological updates, great teacher and student relationships, lots of clubs and activities and much more. This school has many resources that are updating every year. This school is great for all students!
Auburn High School is full of diversity and friendly people and staff. Teachers are all about their kids and helping them succeed in life. Auburn High School is definitely about preparing their students for college or any life after high school. They fully support all their students no matter the circumstances and make sure all their students are begging the help they need. I definitely would like to more parent involvement. However student involvement is hard to beat. Everyone is involved and wants to be a part of such a great school. There is no way I’d ever consider transferring schools and I would beg my parents to stay here than move anywhere else. While the city may not be the best, this High school is better than the rest. No doubts about it; Auburn High School is the school to attend.
