We have one student graduated from Auburn High and one currently a Junior. We have been pleased with the variety of programs, quality of education, and diversity. Auburn High is like the real world all social economic situations and race backgrounds. The facility itself is in need of updating, but this does not impact education. The school will be replaced over the next three years as the voters have approved the funding. The principal at the school cares and is active. So is the Superintendent for the district. The have a solid sports program that emphasizes academics.
Go Trojans!!!!! first off let me say this is an amazing school and all the teachers and staff are great educators. i think in auburn you cant find a better senior high school.
The Special Education Program at AHS and in the Auburn School District is abysmal with efforts to improve it met with at the least indifference - sometimes hostility and retribution.
This school is ok. But things could be better. Staff is fine students are not. Bad influences.
My three kids loved their teachers and the diverse student body gets along well. No public school can be perfect, thanks to today's enabling society, but I'm happy my kids graduated at AHS.
ok i go to auburn high to this day and it is one of the best schools ever! its so layed back and really expects you to do good and you will if you give a little try
Both of my kids graduated recently from AHS. Admittedly, they were both in the AP college track, but I have to say that both of them had an excellent education at this school. Several people mentioned the drug problem at the school, but it turns out that there are drugs at every school around, including the private church sponsored schools. My kids had dedicated teachers, one of which, Mrs. Rosivere (Sorry about the spelling) gave my daughter one of the best bases for English writing that I have ever encountered. Because of the education they received at AHS, both of them were admitted to private universities with considerable scholarships for academics and music. My daughter didn't want to graduate because there were still so many opportunities to explore. (My son didn't feel the same way, he wanted out into the big wide world ASAP!)
Auburn high needs to work on helping students out. Especially new freshman; you cant just give a kid a schedule and expect them to know where everything is, that isnt fair to them. It stresses them out!
I feel that the students are the ones in control of this school. Teachers spend 80% of their class time monitoring behavior rather than actually teaching. Students have no respect for the staff and each other.
This school is absolutly great. I love it. Everyone is really dedicated to everything and anything.
the teachers here are well trained and are amazing when it comes to helping students. as for sports and extra after school activities there are many to choose from! the music department just won there fourth grammy. The parent involvment is really good when it comes to fundraisers and sports! the school is functioned well, they do not put up with fighting or bullying! they run a tight school, but it's also really fun. the safety is awsome, we practice fire drills twicw to three times a month. i love going to auburn high!
Academic programs are in wide variety.The Advance placement and honors classes are available in large numbers.The band at this school has placed high year after year in state competititons.The art teacher is afavorite among students.The football team has gone to playoffs since the new coach has been there.There are dance,step,drama,color guard,and cheer teams for those wishing to partcipate.Not to mention the extended number of clubs that are in this school.Parent involvement could improvement in any type of situation.But there is constantly a number of parent volunteers around the building doint the best they can to keep students safe.I must admit there have been a few cracks in this system.But work is being done to try to improve these downfalls
Very old building needing many updates. Teaching faculty mostly caring.
This school has a wide variety of programs available for all levels of students. There are a vast amount of vocational options at AHS--including an in-school restaurant! There are many opportunities for parents to be involved--sports boosters, homework help, extra-curricular supervision, etc. This is a good school with many ways to get involved.
This is a good school. The teachers and administators are very good at keeping the overcrowdedness peaceful. With the new high school opening this coming fall the number of students will fall. It also has a wonderful amount of sports teams and academic clubs as well as nonacademic ones. I myself am on 2 sports teams in debate and part of the schools GSA and Diversity Club. AHS is big on supporting diversity.
I went to Auburn High School for 3 years and I have never been so reduculed and hated in my life! I know thats it's a natural part of life to be picked on but, there is a limit to the hazing. Auburn High School tops the limit and I feel that this school is not safe. There are several chanced to be accepted. But you have to have lots of money and nice clothes. The teachers don't care, so why did they become teachers if they don't care about the students they 'love' so dear? But, on the brighter side of things I love the extracurricular activities. I only hope that this schol can get better in time.
I have only been going to this school for a few months now and there has been so many fights so far. I am scared that I am not in a safe enviroment. The school is over crowded but the wrestling team is the best!
This school has a pretty good band - if you're only counting the way it looks to a spectator. The kids overall are very rude and the parents and adults in leadership positions don't help this problem at all. The kids are expected to excel - and not just encouraged, but forced, as another person pointed out in their review. There is an average amount of parent involvement in the school, but those parents who are involved generally bring the students down and don't make a very positive environment, pushing students to do well. I would not suggest going here.
My son is a freshmen at Auburn High, he is an honor role student and very athletic. I am a very fortunate parent. Yes, the highschool is over crowded and there is also a new highschool in progress located in Auburn. maybe if parents were more involved with there childs school work and after school activities some of these kids would not be so involved in drugs and crime. I believe that most of the teachers are doing the best they can with what they have, so parents take the time, be more involved in your childs life, talk with the teachers. Auburn High has a high success rate on gratuates and continue on to college. I also have an adult child who has not been as successful and I do not blame it on the school both my kids were in a private school, also a good experience. Are parents looking for perfection? Think about it.
I attended school at Auburn High for 2 years, and I have to say, the school is anything but what I would wish other students to be a part of. From the continuing problem with drugs and violence, going unnoticed, to teachers not caring enough about the students, I was very displeased to attend this school. I was unlucky enough to experience a few bad teachers, who had problems responding to e-mails and phone calls in attempts to curb problems we were having. This school prides itself on being able to work with parents yet it has only been contradicting itself. There are way too many students; so much so that I was told that if I didn't 'step it up' I would be asked to attend a different school, because Auburn High doesn't have room for mess-ups. In result, I will not be attending this school again. -Mary Cristman
