Alden Central School District Reviews

I went to Alden all the way from kindergarten through graduation. It was a very tight knit community that I am glad to say I went to school at. There were always many opportunities for extracurriculars. There were many clubs that if anyone wanted to be in them they were given the opportunity. There was also a wide variety of sports. We also had modified sports in middle school that not all schools had. There were many AP and colleges classes offered that really prepared me for college!

My experience at Alden Central School District was excellent. I personally loved the district for it's small size and family like community. The teachers really tried to connect and unsterstand their students making plans that touched base for all students. The opportunity it offered at Harkness Erie 1 Boces really helped me find my passion in the animal science feild. The school also really well prepared me for college and the future by teaching me responsibility, hard work, determination, and creativity.
Alden is a rural town that is a great place to grow up in. I have lived in Alden my whole life and have attended the Alden Central School District. The district provides many courses to fit each individuals needs. For example, the business department in the high school provides students with the tools and skills needed to communicate effectively in the real world. There is also ample classes in the tech department, from designing to metals to woodworking, there is something for all students to participate in. Overall, the Alden Central School District provides the small community of Alden with great education and facilities.
