    "This school has allowed me to try many different things, for example, classes and clubs. One of my favorite experiences that has been ongoing throughout this year, is being the photo editor for the yearbook. I am able to see all the many different aspects of my school and learn more about the community. Aragon truly feels like a second family because there is always a place that someone belongs. We recently did a high school lip dub with all the students in the video. I think that the video is able to show our unity and spirit, and I would not want to change that."

    "The majority of the teachers actively engage their students, which makes learning exciting. Each teacher has their own style and approach which work appropriately. They are overall knowledgeable and approachable when needed extra assistance. Many teachers create relationships with each individual student."

    "Teachers at Aragon have one purpose: to prepare their students for the SAT and college admissions. While most schools do have focus on test taking rather than genuine learning, Aragon takes this to another level. While I technically graduated from Aragon, I only spent the first two years of high school actually on that campus. The rest I went to their Middle College program, and went to the local community college for classes instead. I did this because I found the social atmosphere of Aragon was too "clique-y;" everyone was very segmented and students that didn't have a set group of friends, a.k.a "me," usually had trouble finding a place to fit in. The teachers saw this in me and would make friends with me, and while hanging out with the teachers before class and during lunch was great, it wasn't the best way to solve my social issues. Inside of class the teachers were very focused on test scores. If you got to know them outside of class, they would help you study, and were in general very sociable and nice."

    "Aragon wasn't the best experience for me. Due to personal issues, I found I had trouble fitting into a friend group, and would often spend my free time during lunch or during free periods hanging out in the theater or with teachers rather than people my own age. The saving grace of my whole high school experience was the Middle College program that Aragon has, which allows students to attend community college for the majority of their classes in the junior and senior years rather than staying on campus."

    "I love this school, but I've had a few tough teachers and a few things where I feel as if I'm not challenged enough in CP classes, but almost too challenged in some AP classes. It took 2 years to finally find a class I enjoyed. The science department is amazing and the Psychology and APUSH teachers were great!"
