Dress code at our school is very strict. We don't wear uniforms, but the first day of school we are all reminded of what we can and cannot wear to school. We get send to the principle office if we are out of dress code. We have great guidance counselors and office staff who are always involved with school spirit and have great relationships with the students as well. Bullying is not tolerate at our school and we have the ability to report bullying anonymously on our school website. Aledo High School has the best principal!

The academics at my school are greatly appreciated. Most kids in school, at other schools, think that taking advancaed classes are nerdy and weird. At Aledo advanced classes are really competitive and challenging bring everyone to hink its awesome! I am involved with advanced classes and its helping me grow extremly. Aledo also offers dual credit so student can go ahead and get some college creditis out of the way.

Aledo is best known for its Athletic status.

Lots of outside students and parents are attracted to the athletic attention the school receives.

All of the athletic organizations are amazing.

The coaches are great, understanding and motivating.

The athletes are great competitors, and push hard for what they want!
