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.
Review Alamo Heights High School
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.
I liked the school but honestly I didn't feel prepared for a university. With Alamo Heights people who know of the school expect you to be really smart and I didn't feel like I had that. I made good grades but the transition to a University was a wake up call. The teachers were good and taught to the book but it's difficult for a teacher to go beyond only because they teach to a test. Not fun. A lot of school spirit!
