Alcovy High School Reviews

My experience at Alcovy High School was a very interesting journey. Through the process there were the high and low moments and even the in-between moments. Though there were many sour moments during my time attending this school, there were many positives. Some of these positives include, intriguing field trips, gaining close bonds with some of the faculty, and outside vending for lunch (Chikfila, Zaxbys, etc.). There were also many sour moments during my time here which includes, (poor location, lack of school spirit, and an overall toxic environment. The environment at Alcovy is highly toxic due to the fact administration was lazy with certain situations and circumstances; as well as teachers often showing lack of attention and effort. This made my time at Alcovy poor because I feel my time here didn't fully prepare me for college and the real world.

Although Alcovy staffs seem to care, after being there for four years, it is obvious they do not. We have multiple incidents where there should be some sort of outcry, but instead, administration covers it all and pretends it never happened. The clubs try to cool and fun, but most are poorly funded. There are some teachers that care for their students and the rest have an attitude of hatred towards students and generally their job and as a result their students suffer majorly. I'm giving this an average because I was involved with the marching band, which I enjoyed until the principal fired the band director and replaced him and I had great friends to make that hole of a place enjoyable.
Within my three and a half years of attending Alcovy, I can say that it is a very friendly and wonderful school. Going to the football or basketball games were thrilling, especially because I was able to cheer for both sports for two years. Seeing every student coming out to participate and support Alcovy was the best experience. The first thing I like about my school are the teachers. Alcovy is filled with very school spirited teachers. Also filled with teachers who want every student to be succeed. So, they are easy to talk to when asking for help and are very understanding. As far as what I would want to see change about Alcovy, is nothing. The school is perfect in its own way and how it is now is what make Alcovy the great school it is.
