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.
Review Alexander Junior/Senior High School
I do feel safe at school even without armed guards or metal detectors. I think students would feel more safe though if some metal detectors were implemented because I know of too many people that have brought guns and knives to school without administrators knowing. Although there are far too many doors for people to get in that it would be impossible for everyone to go through metal detectors. Most doors are supposed to be locked almost all the time, except there are many times when people can just walk into the building or even get out of the building without people knowing.
Alexander is a very tight knit school, everyone knows everyone. The academics are okay. However they do not offer a lot of college readiness classes. The school is not very diverse so it does not help a student experience different culture as they may in college so the culture shock might be too much for some. There is not a lot of facilities able for the students to use to do extracurricular activities so that involvement is slowly dwindling.
