I love the amount of activities there are to do to stay involved in the school. There are multiple sports offered during every season and also many clubs functioning throughout the school. The teachers also care a lot about the grades and how to help kids that are struggling with subjects. I love the school and the community that surrounds it!

High school is a rough time for everyone, however I do not believe the environment at Alexander helped with this. There are wonderful teachers at Alexander who care about their students, however the academics and resources are just okay. The high school poured a lot of money into sports, including the construction of a new fitness building while they were asking for the school to be provided with more money, and it would have been nice to see the administration care about other groups and clubs more. Overall the school is a little less than okay, with poor academics that do not do well to prepare for college or teach a student how to study (something I realized once I started taking courses at the local colleges). To be frank, I wish my parents had enrolled me at Athens High School where the academics are known to be better and the student population is more diverse.
The best thing about Alexander is the amazing teachers. They care about the students and their education, and try to create an open-to-learning environment so even those who do not enjoy being in class can get something out of it. I would, however, like to see Alexander try harder to help end bullying.
