I have generally enjoyed going to Aledo. There are several teachers that make their subjects come to life. Mrs. Myser taught me way more than math, she taught me what a good person looks like and taught me that teachers can make a huge impact on students. However there is a larger number of teachers that do not invest into their students or treat them well. I joined several clubs like Leading Ladies, Math club, and NHS. These clubs taught me how serving the community is not only beneficial to the people but also to myself. The girls basketball program does not feed into the athletes, it is very divisive and does not create a cohesive environment. Overall, my experience at Aledo has been amazing because of a handful of teachers and because I made it into the best experience I could.

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.

The experience was decent- the lack of school dances and the amount of merely decent teachers was a bit bothersome, but they did have more good than bad. Teacher like Mr. Carpenter and Coach Wright made me a more prepared student. The rules are not super harsh and you can slide them around as you wish- that is a major flaw due to the decentralized power. But with all doubts aside, this is a great high school with a great amount of opportunities unless you are looking for an ROTC program; because you will not find one here.
