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.
Review Alhambra Senior High School
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.
There is a wide variety of great clubs and organizations at this school, many leadership-type clubs, volunteer-type clubs, and just random, fun clubs. Key Club, Lawn Chair Club, Snowboarding club, Mock Trial, and Baking Club were all fun clubs just to name a few. The level of commitment wasn't stressed with clubs like Lawn Chair Club and Baking Club, but the more academic type clubs like CSF and volunteer clubs like Key Club and Interact Club required you to attend meetings regularly but if you did miss a couple meetings, it was alright, you would just get the meeting information from someone else in the club.
