Map of Aldine High School address.

I am a male sophomore currently attending this horrible school. I've only been to this for about 2 months and I've never seen so many people go against their own principal. When I came to this school, I was hoping it would be a school where I can express myself and communicate to teachers, principals, etc. It turned out to be the complete opposite. I got continually harassed by the APs to cut my hair when I had it on a ponytail and kept getting sent home before 1st period even ended. It is also mandatory to have an ID on at all times and I never got one till about a week after my arrival because the lady kept refusing to take my picture. This continued for about a week before I just couldn't take it anymore and just cut it. Some of you may think having long hair is a sign of being careless but to some people it's part of their religion, their style, what makes them, them. Aldine High School doesn't seem to recognize this and it really irritates me that there's a hair policy on guys but girls can have their hair as crazy as they please. This school also has a shaving policy, now. Now, I get they want us to look clean. but to have to pay the school for you to shave is pretty obscure.

I have never been treated so disrespectfully in my life. This school has been running very well these past two years. However now, I'm afraid that Aldine High School is going to have quite a bit of problems with their new principal Walter Stewart. He is the most belligerent, rude, arrogant man I have ever had the disgrace of knowing. I have it on great authority that many teachers as well as students are reluctant to the coming of the 2013-2014 school year since it was announce that he was the new principal. He is apparently too busy to answer any questions on the new Dress Code policy that he has taken upon himself to create. He ignored me, and humiliated me in front of the staff members as well as some parents and students around. He wished for me to speak to an AP, however; I know from prior experiences that he is the only one who has an issue with dress code. I have already made an appointment to speak with the Superintendent and will see this matter through. He made a very poor decision in coming to the High school. Ms. Janet Deblanc, would be very disappointed to see that he of all people is going to be running her school. I'm glad she's not around to this atrocity unfold.

Supporting teachers, I feel welcome and comfortable to send my son here, I never had a problem with anyone there and they provide lots of activities for both parents and students.

As a former student who graduated in 1996 the school then was fine. All schools have there problems. But now, there is no way I would send my kid to this institution! The school looks bad and down right out dated. It's sad to see the school I attended and had so much mustang pride for and played football for has turned into what it is today!

Last school year 2005-2006 was the first year for the 'Academies'. The idea behind the Academy is to increase TAKS scores. Aldine High TAKS outcome is still Academically Acceptable. NO real significant progress was made. These Academies only make it easier for the Counselors to make the student's schedule. The student is asked in the ninth grade what profession would they like to pursue. Once the selection is made the student is locked into a particular pathway and is told too bad if they change their minds later. Parents are told its too bad as well. The administration takes advantage of the fact that many parents can not speak English and/or don't know their rights. Over half of the students end up in electives they don't want and can't get out of.It makes one wonder in whose best interest is the Academy idea looking out for. Its a cookie cutter system.

With 28 to 35 students per class the ability to provide individual attention is out the window - not to mention offering the students the opportunity for hands on learning experiences. At Aldine it is not the principal that runs the school but a tyrant.She bullies her way on everything,insulting and disrespecting teachers. Her treatment of teachers is apprehensible. She should be sent to the corporate world would she might learn a thing or two about how to be a leader that people respect and want to follow. She is totally unaware of the true sentiments of her constituents. She is pretty much a mirror of the style of leading in Aldine Independent School District. Who really needs a wake up call is the superintentent. The Administrators just come up the ranks without any real teachings on how to use their administrative authority in a positive manner.

Compared to other schools in the AISD district, Aldine can easily be named the worst. Academic programs: People that have no capacity or interest to be in AP classes are there. Many 'surprisingly' pass, while a few others get kicked out. Teachers: A few good, many not-so-good. More than one tend to ramble about their personal lives and leave education completely out. Sports: Football seems like a main priority. They give it more importance than having a real newspaper, or better art programs. The facilities...MEDIOCRE. The worst part are the restrooms not located in the A and B wings (the newest parts of the school). They're old fashioned (and just plain old) and the walls and doors are VERY short; no privacy. The food: Not good. We can't expect perfection, but want something better for ourselves and future generations. I should know. I'm a student there.

As a teacher at Aldine, I would like to stand up for the school a bit. There are many teachers here that are willing to go the extra mile for their students; I am one of them. All a student must do is ask. I would like to say though that within the last two years the dynamics of the school have certainly changed. I feel like it is a less supportive and more volatile campus. The discipline procedures have become unclear and ineffective. The students are starting to have the run of the place because they no longer have set consequences. Administration in no longer supporting the teachers in the classrooms with their discipline. This is a serious problem and needs to be addressed immediately.

I Feel that they focus more on the kids appearance then their education.

I currently attend Aldine Senior and I'm Afraid the school's History has changed. Teachers are no longer willing to go the extra mile to help their students. The principals are no better. They are very rude and does not consider their students opinion about anything. They actually treat their students like prisoners instead of students and I believe that teachers, principals, and the students should all be able to communicate when neccasary. I feel as if students do their best that they should get rewarded every now and then.Overall, I think I made the worst decision of my life when I attended Aldine Senior.

I am a former student of Aldine High. I graduated in 1982 and believe that I received the highest quality public education possible. The teachers were competent without being distant. They were willing to go the extra mile with you if necessary. Discipline still existed with the public school system at that time an students were held accountable for their actions. How the school is now, I have no idea but I hope at least some of it's history has been retained.
