Auburn School District Reviews

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.

What I like about the Auburn school district is how welcoming it is. I study in Auburn Riverside and I can say that it's been amazing for me so far. Teachers are willing to help you out when you need help. Also, what's different about Riverside is that we have scanners for attendance. We have this class called AR time during lunch. I admit I was not fond of the idea at first, but now I've grown to love it. A student may either go to intervention or enrichment, depending on their grades. Interventions are for those struggling with their classes and are kind of like a tutoring time for them. Enrichment is for those who are doing good in their classes so they can either go to clubs, enrich their learning further, or try out new stuff.
I am currently an undergrad at auburn university pursuing a degree in biological systems engineering. I have fully completed my first semester and can say that I have enjoyed my time here so far. They have a beautiful campus and many academic resources for students. The education Auburn has to offer is high quality, and there is always something fun going on around campus. My main complaint would be that the campus struggles with diversity. Myself being a minority, I would like to see more minority students in the college.
