Alhambra High School Reviews

What I like about Alhambra High School are the school events anybody can participate in and most importantly how diverse it is. I like my school because it has the medical field program that I am involved with. They currently have the nursing program that is very exciting and hands on. Alhambra is a school where you can make many different friends. All schools have areas where they can work a little more on. For example, this school needs more safety because this neighborhood is quite dangerous and we need feelings of security. I wish this school can be a little more united where people have a voice. I also hope Alhambra can turn into a school where everyone has something good to say about it.

I would never want to bash a school down through a survey, but here’s why I rate my experience two stars. Alhambra High, a school that I moved to near the end of my freshman year, confuses you. It confuses you when you know who you are, when you already set yourself with your interests and goals. You expect to at least feel welcomed, but that wasn’t the case for me. First day at school, in a state I’ve never been in, in a city I’ve never imagined being in. I never felt welcomed. I found out that I was part of a super-minority at school and I was treated different because of my race. The music program isn’t what everyone said it was. Everything, in my eyes, are misleading.
My experience at Alhambra has been very helpful and challenging, Making me grow as a person and learn how to better carry myself as an informed individual with the right tools to use outside of school. Somethings I would change would be the amount of courses in Alhambra, it’s a medical based school that promotes that heavily, but most students that go to Alhambra aren’t interested and don’t take the course, not to mention how quickly they do fill up not by the majority but more the minority.
