Alameda High School Reviews
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.
Alameda High isn't anything special. The teachers are only good if they teach AP classes, there's hardly any school spirit, and recently, with the class of 2020 and 2021, there have been many more fights breaking out on campus. However, if you're a driven student, Alameda High isn't the worst place to be- it's just not the best. The AP classes (depending on the teacher) are challenging and engaging but the resources are lacking, compared to Encinal High. A big plus is that we're allowed off campus lunches, which means we get to roam Alameda's business district for overly priced food for 50 minutes. Honestly, if given the choice, I would have gone to ASTI or the Oakland School for the Arts. The student community at Alameda is lacking as well. Hardly anyone shows up for fundraisers or concerts, even those that benefit the sophomore class or the freshman class, for example. For such a close community as Alameda claims to be, it's surprising that Alameda High doesn't reflect it at all.
