With a large variety of classes ranging from college preparing to multitudes of advanced placement, Alameda High's classes offer a diverse selection for students with varying abilities and talents, promoting educational and artistic diversity. With such diversity in classes, it makes sense that our school has over 100 clubs that are eligible for anyone to join or start. With no starting requirements, Alameda High's sport teams are inclusive and available for anyone. We are able to fund these clubs and sports due to our excellent “PTSA”, or Parent , teacher, and student association. The food selection is amazing. We have an open lunch, meaning we can go anywhere we would like for lunch. To conclude, with all of the diversity in classes, sports, clubs, and food, our school’s culture is amazing to be apart of , and enjoyable for all.

Amazing student culture. Teachers were passionate, supportive, and knowledgeable. Great athletic program and coaches!
Alameda High was a nice, average school with a welcoming community and a rigorous curriculum. It had many resources that helped students get ready for post-secondary life. The school next to one of the main streets of the town so it was a great place to look for after school activities. There are many groups at the school for extracurricular activities that helped students enrich their environment, whether sports or social and environmental activism.
