I've been going to this school since I was a freshmen and the growth and improvement of the school has been incredible. I would almost say that our school is the most diverse school on Auburn. The administrators, teachers, including other staffs shows extreme care in our education and makes sure that we can always rely on them for anything. Go TROJANS!

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.
The Auburn School District, with more than twenty schools in the community provides a beneficial chance for students, parents and families to consider alternatives compared to feeder schools. With alternatives come varying ratings according to renowned sites like Great Schools*, as well as different course catalogs and extracurricular interests for high school students to grow and strive in their academic environment.
