—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 8, 2012

I accepted a job in Montgomery 3 years ago moving from north Alabama. After much research, I decided to live in Auburn and commute to Montgomery as I had two at Auburn University and a rising 10th grader. I wish all of my children had the opportunity to be in the Auburn City Schools. My youngest will graduate in two weeks but the opportunities and education she has received have far surpassed her siblings. These teachers go so far above & beyond it is unbelievable. We have been so lucky to be part of this school! Keep up the astounding work!

This is a great school with great school spirit. It is a school that provides many opportunities to children with different interests. The teachers are very committed. My son's years at this school were great! If you are moving into this community, do not worry. The students at the schools will be very welcoming to your child. I am a realtor and over the last 25 years, I have never known a child who didn't adjust well to a move to Auburn no matter how reluctant they were to come in the first place.

Auburn High School is the best high school in the state. It is one of the few schools in the state of Alabama to have an IB program. I love it because it has every extracuricular activity from Basketball to Rugby. How many schools do you know that has a Rugby Team!
