I went to Alexandria Senior High School from 2014-2018. Highschool was very memorable. From the good times such as prom, homecoming, and military ball, to the scary times like bomb threats. ASH was full of cliques. Teachers were amazing. They all cared for you as if you were their own child. I miss being in Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps the most with Colonel Martin and TOP Davis. They made ASH a great experience for me!

Alexandria Senior High School is a great school to attend. We have amazing athletics, extra-curriculum activities, and academics. The athletics department is a very broad department with a sport for everyone. Our extra -curriculum actives offers a wide group of clubs that way everyone can get involved. So, no student is left out. Academics is a major thing at my school. We have college level classes like AP and Dual Enrollment to give students a challenge of what the college courses are like and a chance to our some college credit. Our school had the highest ACT average and the only "A" school for the parish last year. To help further our ACT Readiness our school has intervention everyday to give students enough experience with the test this way they are fully prepared but this time is also used as a study hall as well. With all the great thing my school has some improvements are still necessary.
The main thing that I liked about Alexandria Senior High was the connection students feel to each other throughout the school. There was just a simple understanding felt towards one another within each class, making the days so much easier to get through. The teachers also formed one-on-one connections with many of the students, making teaching seem like less of a chore to them and more of a fun thing, which is what they signed up for when they decided to teach.
Even with all the good, there are some things about ASH that could be better. For example, the bathrooms throughout the school are just terrible and are in great need of being replaced. The school also needs new equipment, as it seems the students are being thrown back into the 1980's every day when walking into the building.
