Auburn School District Reviews

All Categories
Auburn school district is an excellent place to have your children enrolled in school, especially at the elementary level. The teachers strive to meet or exceed state and national standards on testing. They love each and every one of the children they have in their classes and every teacher in the school contributes to each child's learning. A few things I'm not fond of in Auburn is, across the board, the teachers strictly teach to the test! Creating long hours of reading and math throughout the students day, not leaving much free time or fun in the kids day. Auburn's schools are extremely old and run down. There has been a bill passed recently to improve schools, but all schools that need work may not get money and by the time all schools get taken care of, the newest ones will be in disrepair again.
Review Auburn School District
I transferred into the Auburn School District from the Kent School District when I was in 7th grade and, to say the least, it was the best decision my parents could have made. Throughout my middle school and high school career, I was exposed to such great people and faculty who truly cared for my well-being and wanted to see me flourish. I was blessed with many opportunities when it came to things I'm passionate along with them making the college application process easy. Overall, I can gladly say that I had the best high school experience I could have possibly imagined, all thanks to the Auburn School District and its wondeful people.
Attending school only in the Auburn School District, I appreciate the Auburn School District's passion to better education for all students in all levels and how administrators occasionally show up to school meetings, open houses, elementary school events, and other school events. However, I do recognize that there are certain areas where the district could approve on, such as, understanding students for their needs and not conveniences in the classroom or requirements. There are too many useless tests & survey the district makes the school take. I feel like no matter how many surveys I take, my voice will not be heard genuinely. Same goes for every student, teachers even hesitate and question why they have to shorten their class periods to give a survey or tests that will never truly affect anything. Although I have only attended schools under the Auburn district, I do see there is a large diversity and a more positive school culture rather than a negative one.
