School Reviews

  • Recommended April 21, 2008 - I am a current student at Aberdeen High. I for one love this sckool. M teachers actually teach us things we will need to know in life, important life lessons. I told one of my teachers i didn't need to learn something to become what i what to acheive. He gave me a real life situation of someone he knows to apply that knowledge. I am a very proud student. there will always be the normal high school drama, but some of us learn to cope and handle that with the help of ours teachers. when an important event happens, we discuss it in school to help ourselves if or when it happens to us. i am very happy in tis school with my teachers and administaters, thank you. - Posted by Student/Alumni

The Parents’ Guide to Common Core

White Students are Now the Minority in U.S. Public Schools
Increasing birth rates among immigrant families from Asia and Central and South America, combined with lower birth rates among white families, means that for the first time in history, public school students in the United States are majority-minority. This shift in demographics poses difficulties for schools as they work to accommodate children of varying language abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.
