Ayden-Grifton excels in sports. It has a comprehensive auto mechanics program, but needs to better serve those who may have talents in science and math.-not that the curriculum is lacking in any respect, but there are initiatives to enhance science and math education, STEM for example.Pitt County schools need to develop these initiatives to serve a diverse student body.

As a student at AGHS, I see a lot of the things that go on both in the classroom, and behind the scenes. I know for a fact that the teachers really care about their students, and the administrators try their hardest to improve things like security, availibility of programs, and overall equality among students. The teachers are indeed top-notch. Students are more familiar with one another due to the smaller class sizes. There is great support from the administrators for the various programs that are offered. They have a love and support for the arts programs, which is not found many other places. It truly is a fine institution with great opportunities for your children to grow and learn.

I am a former student and AG is great. I was well prepared to enter the college arena and my other classmates are very well educated also. AG has a low enrollment, that means fewer student to teacher ratio. Yeah, we didn't have all the money and classes, that Rose and Conley have, but we had great teachers who made the best of what we had. I knew everyone in my graduating class, not many can say that. Mr. Tyer, Mrs. Skinner, Mrs. Leich, and Mr. Avery are exceptional teachers. Thanks Mr. Avery for AP Biology, it made A&P for nursing school alot easier. Mr. D. Wilson made World History very interesting with his hand drawn maps of Europe. AG is great, thanks to the wonderful education, it greatly prepared me for College.

As a former student of Ayden-Grifton High School I can say first hand that this school is a good high school. Everyone that I have met with in Pitt County that attend other schools act as if there is a problem with AGHS because the school enrollment is fairly low. A low school enrollment has nothing to do with the actually students, staff, and educators, but instead just the size of the towns and how the county has drawn out the school districts. In fact AGHS is strong in vocational and health studies. There is a very low amount of 'clicks' and 'bullies' and since it is a smaller school most of the students known each other there whole school careers. AGHS gets low funding due to stuckup parents of students from Conley, Rose, SCHS who denied Pitt County Schools to redistrict the county to even out school enrollments numbers.

There is a nice racial balance and a lot of potential in many of the students. However, funds are depressingly low. Teachers leave often to teach for a better school while dedicated honors students often apply for vocational schools. In short, everyone wants to get out because the Pitt County School District constantly refuses to fund any programs. However, in defense of the teachers and behaved students, there is a lot of eagerness to improve...they just need to resources...and that is the district's fault.
