Alonso High School Reviews

Although both my junior and senior years were cut short due to COVID 19, Alonso High School offered as much support as possible during the pandemic. From offering free tutoring on weekends to the incredible staff that help students with all types of problems, Alonso's resources available to students go above and beyond. The school encourages inclusivity for all types of students, as there are multiple affinity groups and clubs that students can partake in and even lead. Despite changes in policies and the way our campus is run, the priorities of the Alonso staff still hold true- to ensure every student has a chance to graduate and to feel safe and welcomed at school. After school extracurriculars follow CDC guidelines, as I can vouch for that since I am an officer at Alonso's FFA team and a team captain of Alonso's throwing division in our Track and Field program. Simply stated, Alonso is where I have made so many countless memories and friends and I'm now prepared for college.

Alonso is a great school because of all of the opportunities that it has to offer. The teachers are amazing and they are very educated in their subjects. Many science teachers have their Ph.D.'s, ranging from biochemistry to immunology. They have has to quickly adapt to changing environments because of COVID-19. They have had to manage E-Learners and Brick and Mortar students simultaneously. This past year has been a struggle but everyone is trying their best to cope with these new circumstances. The staff and students have kept a positive attitude this entire school year so far, and they will continue to do so.
My name is Sager Cavalier. I attended Alonso high school for four year. My experience at Alonso High school was great. I participated in their marching band and was one of their top basketball player.

The faculty are very involved with the Parents and students. There were no tolerance for bullying and any type of disorderly conduct. In my opinion, Alonso High school has the best teachers. The teachers cares about their students.

During my time on the basketball team. I led the high school to their first District championship.

Although I graduate from Alonso high school. I still keep in touch with my former teachers and friends. My coach still remains as a mentor in my life.

I wasn’t always the the best scholar. But the faculty including the principal at Alonso high school helped me to ge there. Currently, I am enrolled in my second year at a University.

I had a great four years at Alonso high school. They’re one of the best high schools in Tampa Florida.
