This school is a very good school. All teachers and administrators expect the best from everyone. Everyone is very helpful and nice at Alexander high school. If a student is falling behind the teachers and administrators do everything in their power to help that student back up and help them achieve their dreams. The sports department at Alexander, I would say, is the best in douglas county and top 30 for the state. The education level is very high at Alexander high school, for the graduating class of 2018 there were over 30 students who could have a hope scholarship. If you are looking to go to a fantastic high school go to Alexander where they welcome everyone!

Alexander high school was a great school with an amazing AP research and magnet program! Great athletics too. Teachers are good, cleanliness could be better. Needs a make over but I loved it.
Overall Alexander High School is a good school. I like how diverse it is and how spirited it is. The teachers i had were great and totally helped in so many ways to make sure that students including me got the best out the class. Also love how they put so much time and effort in preparing us for our future plans like, going to college and getting a job. They made sure we got all we need for our future. There is not much that i would change except for little things like providing better food varieties to choose from and maintain the bathrooms especially the girls because sometimes we run out of soap and paper towel. Another thing that is a problem at school are the hallways, there are so many students at Alexander that the hallways get too crowded in between classes which makes it hard for some students to get to class on time. But overall Alexander is a superior high school and i am glad that i got to be a Alexander Cougar for all 4 years of my high school career.
