I attended Alisal all my four years of high school & every year it was amazing! We have a great team of ASB leaders who help make every event fun! Everyone in the school is so kind and outgoing, we are like a huge family. I participated in the Baile Folklórico dance class and it was one of my best experiences. We had talent shows or other events where we would show off our dance skills. Alisal has the largest amount of students graduating out of the county. I would like to see the school grow in size, make it bigger to fit all of our great students!

Alisal High School is a great school and over the last few years the school has improved in the eyes of people from a "ghetto" school perspective to a well-rounded, efficient, and overall a great school. I have learned a lot from this school and they have done wonders to my knowledge and overall, me as a person. The faculty in this are filled with teachers that want to make succeed to the student's fullest potential and I have to thank the school for that. Sure this school has its ups-and-downs, but what school doesn't? The rich history that has been present around this school and it's still there and I am glad this has been my school for that past 4 years and for that I am proud to be called a TROJAN! GOOOOOOOOOOO TROJANS!
One thing I enjoyed about Alisal High is the teachers. Well, my experience with the teachers I had over the past 3 years was excellent. They are always there for you if you need anything school wise and is always trying to help you especially when it comes to college-related questions and advice. One thing that I did not like though was that I personally felt that the school was always too focused on was the sports. I felt like all the money given to the school or that the school had always gone to the sports but not all sports just the " important" ones like basketball. I always saw basketball getting new things every month or so while the tennis team has been needing new scoreboards and haven't gotten them.
