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.
I loved the atmosphere at Alamo Heights. The people and staff are so nice and helpful. All of the teachers are there for your success. Although it is a big school, the amount of freedom and self reliance is astonishing. They definitely want the students to learn how to manage full, stressful course loads.
