It is very sad that the school does not protect the students.

It’s a typical suburban high school that doesn’t tolerate outrè personalities or people who think differently. Counselors focus on kids who already have private counselors, giving the rest of us middle class kid short shrift (even though we need the guidance. Literally). Bullying is not dealt with well. Middle of the road students with mediocre personalities and AP kids seem to thrive. Anyone outside of this template should find a better fit.

Awful!!! I have 3 children in 3 different schools and Aragon has been the only one I would recommend.

I am a parent whose kids went to Aragon and tremendously admire the school's programs and faculty. Every area was well balanced with lot of opportunities of growth and development. So happy that my kids had great achievements and succeeded well in this school. Thanks to their wonderful teachers who gave the needed coaching and guidance. They too feel very happy and proud to be alumni of Aragon High School.

Moved to this district specifically to put my daughter in this school as I felt it was the best of the area SM District high schools. There are a lot of opportunities for kids here but they have to be somewhat progressive about seeking things out. There are all kinds of clubs and organizations for any sort of interest. My daughter is in her sophomore year and has been very happy with her teachers and looking over he work, I see it as challenging but appropriate.The school is becoming a bit "nerdy" but that's not a bad thing and the peer pressure is significantly less than a school like Burlingame High School where you-are-what-you-wear is a daily pressure.The school is comprised mostly of children of parents that live in the nicer parts of San Mateo and Hillsborough which means there is a lot of support from home for academics and going to college is pretty much a given. The kids that are on board with that will do well at Aragon but I could see that children that have some academic challenges might struggle.Overall, we could afford to send our daughter to any school, public or private and she is a strong student. After looking at all the available options we picked Aragon and have no regrets.
