I had an okay experience here, I noticed that if you aren’t in sports or popular then this school isn’t for you. Parents of students work here and they clearly get better treatment and those students that moved on to university are now struggling. I would like to see history teachers that aren’t coaches because they don’t actually teach, they only pass their football stars so they can keep playing. Overall I had many issues with staff because I stood my ground. I was a great student who graduated in the top 10% of my class so I clearly wasn’t the problem.
Alvarado High School brings a joy and happy feeling when inside the building. Teachers are always welcome and it is easy finding friends there who help you throughout your high school life. Although it is not the best high school, it does allow you to be free there. I would like to see more clubs and programs to open up there so more students are open to trying new things and explore what makes them happy. This school is nice and welcome so it doesn’t make someone feel left out or anything.
I'm a senior in high school and I recently just moved to Alvarado high school in December and its now February. And with the time that I've been here it's been very welcoming. The teachers/ staff are very friendly, I get along with all of my teachers and peers. It's a small school compared to the school I came from, but it's extravagant. I am glad I moved schools because my previous high school was depressing. Alvarado High School is where it's at! I love the way the teachers teach their academics, I understand everything in all of my classes. If my grade is low in a class it's either because I missed school or because I forgot to turn in the assignment. I wake up everyday and I don't dread coming to school. The first class starts at 8 am and the last class ends at 3:30 pm. I don't know much about how good they are at sports or band. But the boys basketball team made it to the playoffs.
