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!
Review Alisal High School
Alisal High School is unfairly judged by outsiders because of it location, the east side of Salinas( known for the high gang violence rate.) But Alisal is a good place to attend. The teachers and staff really care for your well being and safety . Regardless of its reputation about gangs, the students are very well behaved and respectful. They try their best to break all stereotypes and we aspire to go to college and help out our families. Alisal High School deserves much more praises than what they get . Alisal High school is a great place to learn.!
One of the main things that I love about Alisal , is the bond between all students and how we come together and how much spirit we have. Also, the interaction between students and teachers. Alisal has done so much interaction with the community and taken action for so many events like rallies and movements for our future .As well as Many Eye opening presentations. I love that Alisal has so much empowerment and inspirations towards student to graduate and have a future . Alisal is a home to many students and they can be themselves without a fear. There are many clubs that have supported many students. For example, LGBTQ+, Chicano club, Asian Culture club, Spanish club, French club, AVID club, and Link Crew. All these clubs help students get involved to gain confidence, learn about different things and gain interest to travel, go to college and get advice.
