Alonso High School is overall a great school. I am currently a Sophomore here and I have had a pleasant experience so far. None of my friends from middle school decided to come here, so I had to make new friends. Thankfully, I was able to make friends that I could count on and talk to. What I like about Alonso is that you get to meet a variety of people. Its zone includes lower income families and higher income families, and people of different ethnic backgrounds. Alonso has numerous sports teams that are strong in the district. While most of the teachers here are awesome, there are some teachers that are not so great. The school could implement a better system for relaying upcoming events or important information, as I have noticed that there are times when people are unaware about what's going on at Alonso. The campus could use some renovations and have cleaner restrooms, but for a public school, it is not that bad.

I had made many fond memories at Alonso. I was in the DECA club for 4 years. I was a member of 2 years while being an officer of 1 year and president of 1 year. Alonso offers many opportunities for leadership when it comes to clubs. However the current principle policies could be very restraining for experiencing a more relaxed school environment. You will meet many different people from Alonso. Alonso contains mostly Hispanics and White/Europeans. Most of the teachers will be willingly to help you in your academics or help provide you emotional support. Alonso hold many events that students can attend to, such as Powerpuff where guys dress up as cheerleaders and girl plays as football players. They offer many programs and opportunities the only downside is the retraining rules in the school.
As a senior at Alonso High School entering their final semester, I am aware that I will look back on my four-year experience at the school fondly. I am grateful to have had a high school experience where I have been granted a thorough education prior to my enrollment in university. Alonso has provided me with some of my most dedicated and caring teachers, all of whom have mentored me and shaped me into the person I am today. I am also grateful for the relationships that Alonso has allowed me to build. For example, I have bonded closely with my teammates on the school’s Cross Country and Track and Field teams. Having attended a small charter middle school, I had few friends entering high school. The friends that I had made from the team became the group of people that I relied upon the most on a day-to-day basis as a freshman. No school is perfect, these are just examples of the many ways that Alonso has provided me with a memorable and impactful high school experience.
