Aldrich continually challenges my children and helps them to see their full potential. The IB portion of the curriculum is outstanding, not to mention the teachers who are so dedicated. We feel as if the kids are getting a top notch, private education in a public school.
Strengths: Parent Involvement both at home and at school makes for a successful experience at any school. Aldrich is a living example. The IB program has helped all of our children become more empathetic about the world around them and has given them an awareness of the importance of being a good citizen. They teach good study habits which puts them miles ahead once they reach intermediate school. They are challenged at the level they need to be so they have never complained about being bored at school. There is an empahsis on meeting each child's needs intellectually while expecting them to function as a team within the classroom. Bullying is not tolerated. Cons: The school could use some diversity and it would be nice to see the school help less fortunate school more.
My daughter just started her senior year in high school. The wonderful foundation of learning that she received at Aldrich has well prepared her for her education well beyond their walls. A terrific education with a terrific staff!
Aldrich is the only primary International Bacculearate school in Omaha. The curriculum is designed to inspire worldly, emathetic learners. The school has few or no reduced lunch fares and an involved group of professional parents.
