I'm currently still enrolled in Alonso High School and i will be a junior this upcoming school year of 2017-2018, my experience so far has been great. I've made a bunch of new friends through the classes and the sports I play like flag football and talking about sports alonso has the best sports program in Hillsborough County in my opinion. Plus all the teachers i had so far have taught me a lot and push me to become a better student. Overall Alonso is a great school!
During my Time at Alonso High School, I was Introduced to many different activities I could take part of. Due to the school's large size, there is more variety in the clubs and activities offered, meaning there is always something you could part of, whether it be the Alonso football team, or the Alonso marching band. Alonso also offers many extracurricular and AP courses, led by some of the best teachers in the county. Due to it's large variety, the staff always make sure to notify parents each week about all the events happening at the school. If there is one thing I could change about this school, it would be to add more lunch-lines. The increase in the schools population make it hard to get lunch in time!
