I went to Alliance Gertz-Reser Richard Merkin 6-12 Complex when the two where separated back in 2011-2014. In this school, you able to know everyone in campus and become close friends with said people. The teachers were nice and full faith in each and every student. The administration was average because I only really got to know one administrator versus the three we had. We had to share some of the facilities such as the gymnasium, cafeteria, and the library with the high schoolers. At the time, we had the correct amount of resources for every student. This place gave me great memories that can never be replaced.

Attending Alliance Gertz-Ressler High School has been one of the best experiences of my life. The administration and college counselors are always checking in with students individually. They want each student to succed following life in high school. The school also offers various programs and courses that will benefit us in college. Overall, this school is certainly excellent in preperation for college-readiness.
My school is a very small campus but it has a lot of heart. It's a great learning environment because I feel like I can get around the campus well enough. The class size is also really beneficial because my teachers become more focused with the students so we get a lot more support. Overall, I really enjoy the strategies and the way my school performs. Every time I talk to other people who go to different schools that have low expectations, I feel proud to be part of a school that is at the top in preparing us not only for college but our future goals.
