    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.
