I've had a wonderful experience at Alexandria High School. Despite some of the more frustrating and difficult courses, I would never want to attend another school. I would have to say that the best part of AHS is not only the home athletic events, but also the away athletic events. It doesn't matter if it's home or away. We will pack out whatever area were playing in that evening. Alexandria is a very community involved school. A very close knit community. The greatest experience I've ever had was the three hour drive to Russellville High School in the third round of the state playoffs. As we were arriving I'm Russellville, there was a Billboard on the highway that said, "Russellville, the city of state champions." I remember looking to my friends who were riding with me and saying, "just for that, we're putting them out tonight." We ended up winning in what was one of the best football games I have ever seen on a last minute touchdown run by Keenan Woodruff, who only in tenth grade, is probably the best running back to ever come through Alexandria High School.
Review Alexandria High School
I am involved in several areas of my school from academics, clubs, and athletics. I have several teachers and coaches that take interest in how I turn out as an individual functioing in the community. I appreciate the personal interest the staff and community take in helping me to become the best I can be so that I can make it in the real world,
I have attended Alexandria High/Elementary school since kindergarten and it is a huge part of my life. No one can understand what it means to be a Valley Cub until you go to school there. Yes, Alexandria does have its faults but if I had it to do all over again I would choose Alexandria in a heart beat. There's just something about the atmosphere not just at the school but in the entire community. The teachers will become some of your best friends and they're always there for you if you need them. I can not begin count the amount of times I've seen a teacher do something for a student to help them personally. I've seen teachers stay after school to not only work with students who's grades are struggling but to help them with problems at home. Our teaching staff is one in a million and you can't find that kind of love and support system just anywhere. I am so thankful I have had the opportunity to grow up in Alexandria.
