Aspen School District No. 1 Reviews
It's a very progressive school. There is a lot of parent involvement meaning that school is always improving and always taking in real feedback. The college counseling department is amazing and there is a focus on preparing the students for college. There are classes offered that show students how to apply to school and what to look for in a college. Thee are parent and teacher meetings for parents of seniors and every Wednesday, there are workshops for senior on college essays, resumes, activities, and so on. There is so much of a focus on the students as there should be with every school.
I have had the fantastic opportunity to participate in the districts experiential education program where starting from kindergarten you travel with your classmates for overnight field trips. It starts off as one night at a =ranvh, then in fifth grade five days in arches national park, eight grade a week and a half backpacking trip and a 24 hour solo with no food or tent. Then finally as you enter high school, you are put into a lottery and go on trips throughout the country with students from all grades. These express have made me who I am, and I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to attend aspen school district K-12.
AHS is wonderful. I had the best teachers who truly prepared me for college and life beyond Aspen. I made some of my closest friends there, and wouldn't trade my experience for the world. The schedule changes were really difficult to adjust to though, and I definitely felt that the administration was more focused on numbers than actual students' well-being. But my day-to-day experiences and interactions with teachers and students were fantastic.
