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!
Alameda High school is a small school in a small town. The teachers aren't involved in helping the students; most of the teachers don't know much about the subject they are teaching, they were thrown into it. Administration puts all the minority groups under a microscope and are unintentionally racist. We have over weight coaches teaching sports, we don't have consistent coaches for tennis, and they aren't supportive either. Overall, being an African american student at a predominately white school has been a terrible experience.
