Alonso High School Reviews

I spent the entirety of my freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior years at Alonso High School. Out of what this school has to offer, what stands out the most from Alonso is the myriad of incredible teachers that work there (I still am connected with a select few of my favorites after graduation). I felt that Alonso was my second home. Teachers used to welcome me to their classroom with a "hello" and a smile. Also, the diversity Alonso has been embracing throughout these years has been incredible. However, in my opinion, members of Alonso administration gave off an intimidating vibe, and at times seemed condescending towards other students. I felt at times they even treated students as "things" instead of humans. An example of all they seemed to care for was if students fed the seagulls. That was the only feature that I did not like about Alonso. Because of this, I am forced to rate Alonso four stars instead of five. It is a good high school. Just be careful with the administrators.

Alonso provides a variety of opportunities that allows students to be more involved in school. Not only does this make it easier for students to meet new people, but it gives them a chance to identify hobbies and career choices they might be interested in. Currently, I am a Junior and am involved at Alonso High School. I participated on the volleyball, basketball, and track and field team. The coaches truly care about the athletes; they help you grow as a student-athlete and person. For me, participating in sports was a marvelous choice. I feel like I have a second family, I know I can always count on them. Also, I’m involved in several clubs: BETA, NHS, UNICEF, FCA, Interact, and Key Club. I have benefited in my community by helping those in need and cleaning up the environment. Participating in these extracurricular activities has allowed me to meet new people, making me enjoy coming to school everyday. I am pleased to say that I am proud to be a raven.
