Alameda High School's academic vigor helps me prepare prepare for a competitive, high achieving experience in college. The extensive elective selection as well as the numerous clubs available, ensures that everyone can discover and reinforce personal interests. We make sure to shed light on prevalent topics like diversity and environment, but can work harder to implement LGBTQ+ inclusive and sex education. On the surface, our student culture seems widely liberal and accepting, but many students and faculty still project their close-minded, offensive beliefs on others. We can work towards creating a more inclusive and educational program that can help shape a healthier and more loving learning environment. Though my internship with the school-based health center, and discussions with passionate teachers, I'm grateful for the opportunities of spreading awareness and opening up discussion on important topics.
Alameda High School is an exceptional public school as it places an emphasis on academics and has a progressive and inclusive student body and faculty. Along with that, it has a beautiful campus!
I’ve enjoyed my experiences at Alameda High School. Despite its faults, it’s still provided me with a good education and an enriched high school experience. The main problem I’ve had with the school, it’s the teachers. Many are wonderful people and good educators. However, in fields of importance, such as english and science, many of the freshman and sophomore teachers are lacking in their field. The english teachers do not help their students enhance their own thinking but rather encourage the submission to their own thoughts. Grades get punished for any stray from that general thought. Science teachers tend to focus more on getting through a course rather than the full comprehension of the students. This is due in part by AP testing, which is a scam in itself, but by cross reference by peers in non-AP classes, I know it is common for the teachers to fare in this manner.
