I can honestly say that Alexander High School is by far one of the best schools in Georgia at least. There are several teachers that actively do their best to help their students and intellectually challenge them. The school culture is also fairly nice. However, the school lunches, the regular presence of cockroaches, the occasional teacher that does not do much of anything in class, and the administration providing college information almost exclusively during senior year does not do the school or students any favors.

My experience at Alexander Highschool has been one to remember, over the course of these four years Alexander has been there for me. The staff makes sure to focus on every students abilities and will continue to make sure you are were you need to be even more!! The experience of the school is more than I could ask for from extracurricular activities to my standard classes. The administration is always there to make sure the rules are enforced but also allow students to express themselves in other ways such as clubs, sports, and in the classroom and award the excellence of each student.
I chose excellent, but that doesn't even begin to describe Alexander High School, it is so much more than that. Alexander is a place where students and faculty belong, have fun, and learn. Whether it is being teacher of the year, or being a substitute teacher, faculty cares about the well being of the student and vice versa. The diversity of extracurricular activities also makes it an enjoyable environment for the students. And that is why Alexander is so much more than excellent!!!
