Alameda High School is an amazing campus, full of diversity and school spirit. The community is very open and welcoming of all students and staff, no matter their differences. In fact, those differences are exactly what makes the school such an open-minded and progressive campus. The education provided at Alameda High is also one of the greatest curriculums as the school offers a wide variety of subjects and electives, including Advanced Placement courses. The teachers are experienced and understanding, and truly take the student into consideration. As a result, Alameda High truly prepares its students for their future college and career pursuits. Alameda High School is simply one of the greatest high schools one could possibly attend. My time at Alameda High has been four of the greatest years of my life.

Alameda High school welcomes all walks of life. With the diversity within, the student have a chance at mixing and learning culture. The teachers and staff have all been there for a while which makes for great relationship among st them campus wide. The sports program that Alameda High offers allows everyone to try something new if they would like. Great High School!
I find my school to be a safe environment for children, but I think that their effort for being inclusive can't help those who don't want to be included. Our school has had a situation where a religion was targeted and the school felt unsafe. Our teachers are ok some are better than others by reaching out to help their students while others don't seem to care about the students and they only care about the final result. My personal experience at the school has been good I never felt like I was being discriminated and I have had a lot of fun, but for some of my classes I wish that the teachers would work together so that all of the big projects wouldn't overlap each other. When projects overlap more time is being consumed and sleep is being lost which makes me less productive the next day due to fatigue. Overall my experience was just fine, but there are things that could e changed.
