Alamosa High School Reviews
My sophomore World History teacher was really disrespectful to girls who came from an unnamed school. He would sometimes harass students walking down the hall or interrupt other classes by barging in and yelling. My junior year U.S. History teacher was a world changer. He was always respectable, people could joke with him and they wouldn't feel uncomfortable. Every other teacher that I have had has not made me personally feel uncomfortable. Some teachers don't have a grading schedule. Sometimes they will put in an assignment in the grade book that should should have already been entered two months ago. Our band and guitar teachers go above and beyond with their students, because every instrument in the room comes from their own money. The school does not give them money for choir, to replace broken instruments, or to buy new instruments. The teaching styles differ, but in most classes everyone takes notes. Other days could be activities relating to the topic being learned. The communication skills are there, but it could be better for some teachers. Some teachers in our school have masters, so we can take AP classes. Some teachers have interests in students, because they take their time to have meaningful conversations with us.
The school is welcoming but also safe. Bad things can happen anywhere, but the town is immediate in its response to school emergencies and threats, which happen occassionally, but have yet to develop into anything harmful. (AKA- the safety procedures work fabulously). Though, once, we had a blackout and the bathrooms (which have zero emergency lights and zero windows were dangerous, especially since that also shut down the sinks and toilets (which were automated). Also, student fighting is not at all prohibited and so the courts become involved. That's a bit intense.
Alamosa High School is a great school to be in at the valley. The teachers at AHS is so sweet, thoughtful, and helpful. They continue to push students to do their best and make sure they succeed. Even if students are being disrespectful or would not put the time into their work, teachers still continue to push them because they see potential in all of their students and they want to see every single person graduate. Some of the teachers do lack some work. Every year, teachers are required to meet certain criteria, but sometimes, once the school year goes by, not only do students slack, but so do the teachers. Overall, the teachers are great, but need to work on keeping up with the education that students need.
