Alamo Heights High School Reviews

Alamo Heights is a great school district. During my time studying there I enjoyed the strong academics and multiple extracurricular activities. Some of the teachers are amazing and are really knowledgeable, and reachable. The facilities are a little old but the city of Alamo Heights just approved a new fund to rebuild the school. The new facilities will be amazing, there will be a whole new classroom and shop for the rocketry program which is one of the coolest things you could do in high school. The only thing that I would change about the school is the social environment, a lot of its students live in a bubble, cheating is a severe problem at the school, but no student receives a real punishment because the administration doesn't want to deal with the parents. However, most people are really friendly and the counselors are really helpful.

Good Varsity teams, a lot of student involvement in the school, good faculty teachers, studying is easy, good class room, counselors help a lot with their student in school, lunch food needs to improve doesn't look that good to me at all, tutoring helps a lot, different techniques for test preparations in school, school offers you many electives that you are interested in, classes need more student participation and communication with each other, Teachers show differently in each classroom, school schedule seems to be right, students are not that open with one another, a lot of events to participate in school and community work.
My freshman year of high school I enrolled in all advanced classes which quickly turned out to be a mistake. I was in way over my head but I knew that colleges wanted to see that I had challenged myself early. Some teachers were really helpful and would tutor me during lunch or after school. Others, however, kinda just left me to fend for myself. While under the pressures the academics, the social aspect of Alamo Heights is also immensely challenging. There are many things required to fit in and I quickly learned that conforming to the standards of others just wasn't in the cards for me. My sophomore year went a lot better, as I changed into two regular classes. All but one of my teachers were super helpful, and to my luck the unhelpful teacher quit halfway into the school year. My junior year breezed by as I was in a rhythm and understood the psychology of Alamo Heights. I focused more on where I wanted to end up in the future rather than where I was in the present.
