The past for years at Alhambra has been a great experience all around. Though High School can have its ups and downs as it is, I never had a problem getting up and knowing I was at a school that had my back. I think the school has developed immensely since my Freshman year, and it is continuing to grow in all aspects. They are spirited, welcoming/supportive, ready to teach/learn, and are always creating new memories inside and outside of the classroom. I would like to see the school give back to the community more as years go on, focus more efficient ways to teach kids in the future, and become a little more lenient when it comes to planning student activities. But if you are randomly moving to the East Bay and are looking for a good High School to transfer your child into, this school is the happy-medium for sure and I could not be more proud to be a Bulldog for life!

I love Alhambra, the community is wonderful. And the whole town stands behind us with an armful of support. Martinez is such a small community where everyone knows one another. It's a very peaceful and humble town. Our faculty and staff are off the charts, providing emotional support and encouragement for their students. Making an ideal place for students to feel safe and have an adult to talk to. Our clubs and classes our highly involved in our communities, trying not only improve our school, but our community as well. Juniors in but they are discussing modern slavery and what the students can do to help bring awareness to their community and how they can end slave labor. . Our marching band and colorguard have made it their passion to give back to the community. Every year, they visit the VA hospital and perform. They marched just down the road from the school and performed before Les Schwab.
My experience at this school has been a great one that I will remember for a long time. Even though the learning/school aspect was tough at times, the extracurricular activities and friends that also attended the school helped balanced out the stressful times and made it an amazing and enjoyable experience. Prom and other school dances, the homecoming games, competing in school sports, attending club meetings, hanging out with friends at school, and graduating were definitely the highlights of my time at this school. If I could do it all over, I would definitely go to this school again because the sense of community and the quality of the classes was amazing. Everyone knows each other here, which is such a unique aspect of the school and it seems like everyone in town is always involved with school events, there are always crowds at athletic events or volunteers for non-athletic events.
