My school went above and beyond in student involvement. We made lip dubs to promote the school; we were given rewards many times for doing our work; and we were treated with respect. The classroom atmosphere was comfortable, and students were encouraged to jump out of their comfort zone, but they weren’t forced. One thing that I would change is that some teachers should be more inclusive with their students. Certain teachers would give their lecture, but some students wouldn’t be able to apply the given knowledge because they were never able to do hands-on activities.

Alexandria Senior High School is an amazing school to attend. Although it was challenging, the reward of a diploma at the end of your twelfth grade year will be the most amazing feeling ever. You will make tons of friends in a friendly environment. The one thing I regret is not getting involved in as much as I could be involved in. My experience at Alexandria Senior High School was just amazing!
I like that Alexandria Senior Highschool is so diverse. I love the fact that there are so many different people and cultures. I like that Alexandria Senior Highschool is open to inviting people from all walks of life into our school. I feel as though with certain things my school could do better though. One of the ways I feel like Alexandria Senior Highschool can do better is by including everyone in their individual say in certain topics that the school is supposed to talk about as a whole. I’d like to see that administration not only acknowledges the class president or the football player, but also the students that aren’t as outspoken. Because if some of the students that were soft spoken actually were to have an individual conversation with someone from administration, feeling heard, changes could be made.
