    Academics: Aledo's teachers teach very well. They make concepts easy to learn and understand without spending too much time on one subject. There isn't an overwhelming amount of homework and class work isn't too hard either. It's easy to get good grades in a class if you really try.

    Extracurriculars: There's mostly a club for everyone, but sometimes teachers will just not come to club meetings or certain clubs don't get proper attention.

    Overall Experience: The good things are that Aledo is smaller, so you have smaller classes and less crowds. We have a lot of spirit when it comes to sports, and usually do very well in UIL, which is very fun. Most students are kind or at least not rude. The downside about Aledo is that it's smaller, so there's less diversity and different ideas. Most of the kids are wealthy, and republican, leaving even some white people, which Aledo mostly is, down in the minorities if you aren't either. While most people are nice or indifferent to others, kids can also be cruel if you're obviously different. All in all though, Aledo is nicer than most Texas schools and I'd come here again.

    Overall Experience: This school district is the greatest! Sometimes the pressure is on for students and athletes to be the best because that is just the expectation.
