The school offers many great opportunities for people of all different backgrounds, cultures, and ethnicities. The teachers and administration are extremely supportive and will do anything in their power to help you succeed. There are many advanced placement and honors courses offered at the school which provides students with the best opportunity to succeed academically. There are many clubs and sports that students can participate in which allow them to make long lasting connections with students and staff alike. My experience at the school has been fantastic as I love the culture they have and the people there.
As a senior in high school, my experience at Alamosa High School has been a blessing. Being able to complete my education in a rural community is advantageous as I was able to form a strong relationship within a strong close-knit community as well as earn undivided attention from my teachers which allowed for a true quality education. However, one thing I would like to transform about my high school includes being able to gain access to assistance towards college applications, the process of financial aid to help encourage high school seniors to pursue higher-level education.
Alamosa High School lacks in areas of diversity and creativity. There proves to be very little diversity as there are not various races, religions, or even cultures celebrated. However, due to being a tiny town this remains reasonable as with such a small population there is no room for diversity to prosper. As for creativity, Alamosa gains profit off of sports, thus sports remains the center of focus throughout this school. Instead of art and music having multiple clubs and activities, both are very limited. Therefore, I rate this school as average because half of the problems are do to population of the tiny town and the other half regard funding issues and lack of resources in this town consumed by poverty as a whole.
