Alhambra Senior High School Reviews

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!

Most of the teachers really cared for their students and genuinely wanted them to succeed. The teachers who taught AP classes were probably some of the best. Food was very good, and the students were nice. Bullying is not something very common at this school, however some grades can be meaner than others. I think I saw the most bullying within the freshmen and sophomore classes when I was a senior in 2018.
What I liked most about Alhambra was how inclusive the cross country team was. I liked how it felt like a family. The other thing that I liked about Alhambra were the classes. For the most part classes were enjoyable and the teachers werw understanding. The one thing I have change is nothing, I can't really think of anything that Alhambra has to change.
