Alhambra High school is a decent school to attend. It offers quite a few classes. The teachers and the staff at the school are pretty decent. Sports are good and academics are good aswell. I would like there to be more diversity in the classes.
They are in a small town that cares about the schools sports and arts. One change I would like to see is funding for smaller sports such as wrestling.
Alhambra is a really unique school. They adapt to anything and has really good pride. I wouldn't change anything. I wouldn't like going to a new school because Alhambra helped me grow and to become who I am and follow my dreams. The people are so amazing as well always support us and the different department treats each and one of us right. It feels like we are a family. Again I wouldn't change anything.
It was a great school with awesome sports programs. The teachers really care about their students but the lunch provided could be a little healthier.
Alhambra High School is located in Martinez, CA. Upon moving here in eighth grade, the first thing I noticed was the closeness and sense of family the community shared. No family was left out of the weekly farmer's market or ice skating rink set up. It was like walking into the home of a connected and happy family.
As a gay male student, my experience was rather exceptional. Before I came out, I would get bullied and sexually harassed while my gym teacher pretended as though he saw nothing wrong with it. After I came out, I was embraced, and bullies left me alone. Administration lacks accountability among teachers who quite literally do not teach the class, or are constantly coming down hard on students they do not favor.
Alhambra Senior High School has a variety of programs that will help with readiness for college or personal interests, such as computer science and art. They have a helpful administration with good teachers.
Alhambra is very focused on making sure everyone is included and that everyone is represented. The teachers push us students to strive to be our best and to take an academic path that supports the future we want. Students are always represented in any event or decisions made about the school. They could however try to incorporate more safe places for those dealing with mental health issues to be able to go incase they need a break.
I would like to see better food and more willing teachers. Lots of fights and angry students at school.
The staff encourages hard work and creates a safe place to learn and grow. They offer a chance to even get personal with studies and any issues you may have which I think gives a fair chance for each student to succeed. The students are incredibly inclusive and I believe everyone got fair opportunity through the encouragement of both the faculty and students.
Small town community where everyone knows everyone. Parents group together with the teachers to make sure the students are receiving all the resources possible. Great football team, lots of spirit and the marching band is cool too!
Alhambra Senior High School is in a rural setting where it fosters academics, music, arts, and sports. The school culture is one in which it takes pride of its students and faculties showing in school pride.
I like the community the school and the town of Martinez had. There's a great teacher/ staff to student ratio, and I felt like I had relationships with my teachers. There are great arts programs such as drama, creative writing, and physical art. The school is diverse and accepting of all types of people, and I had an overall good time going to that school.
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.
The students and families in Martinez are generally good that attend Alhambra. The administration is difficult to deal with and most of the classified staff is downright rude. The teachers range from supportive to unaccommodating of students' needs.
School is well rounded. Sports are good. Could use more sports seems a little limited. Education is great.
Math is lacking good teachers!
