Overall from my experience of attending Alexander it is a pretty good school. I wouldn't choose to go to any other public high school in this county.I personally as an academic student despise the fact that teachers, students, and administration favor athletes and athletics more than scholars, they still recognize scholars but no where near the recognition an athlete gets.The teachers are good. I bring my lunch to school because the lines take too long and we only recieve 15 minutes to eat which in my opinion is ridiculous. I appreciate the vending machines. It is always fun to go to any of the sporting events. One of my favorite things to be involved in was JROTC.The Cougar Battalion became a place I could put hard work into and see my results. The 1sg,Cln,and the cadet staff do everything they can to help each individual cadet.I encourage and recommend every student to participate in JROTC at least one year if not all.
My first two years at the school have been very good. In academics, Alexander has the best test scores compared to the other high schools in Douglas County. I'm proud to say that I have contributed to my school's high academic excellence as I'm in all honors and AP classes. Student life at Alexander is interactive as there are many clubs and activities. Our school is known for sports as our sports team excel in events that they participate in, as our Wrestling Team are the 2017 6A Dual State and Traditional State Champions!Overall, our sports teams and academics wouldn't be as great as they are without parent involvement as they contribute to every aspect of student life at Alexander. The staff of the school always set examples of the school being united by expressing quotes of unity.Our administration always enforce safety measures on a daily basis. I would like to see more classrooms in the future .Alexander has its flaws but there's no other school that I would rather be at.
