    "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!"

    "This is a great school! They have really good communication, great programs and classes, school spirit, etc. My son has thrived here. He's also very dedicated and aware of what he needs to do to get into a good college, so I'm lucky there. There were a couple teachers that didn't work for him, but the majority have totally inspired him to go into areas I would have never thought he'd love. There are many resources for kids if they're having social issues, academic issues, etc. He's involved in sports (water polo, swimming) so that has created an incredible set of (I think) lifetime friends and love of the sports. I can't even think of negative things to say about it."
