Throughout my high school career, I have been absolutely lucky to have been put in the position to where I’m able to apply and get accepted to college. I will forever be greatful if the education I received to put myself here now. But overall Alvarado highschool could do better. They have very good teachers but everything can always be better. Some of the best teachers I’ve ever had left the school to pursue better opportunities elsewhere. That’s the reason I give them 3/5 stars

Education is acceptable. There are several career training environments, including a full film broadcast studio and hospital lab, which definitely adds to the overall value. But the thing that is the biggest setback is the admin staff. They're all friends with each other, and are very heavily into the "guilty until proven innocent, but still guilty" scheme. They all have each other's backs, and it has a negative effect on the student.
I am currently still attending Alvarado High School. I am a freshman at Alvarado High School. The transition from Jr. High to high school was very easy despite all the diversity. All of the teachers, counselors, and administrators were very helpful and understanding when it came down to newcomers transitioning to all the new things such as teachers, rules, and the facility. They made sure I had everything I needed in order to succeed throughout my high school career. All of the teachers offer either before and or after school tutoring where the student can come into the classroom and the teacher will help them understand the material if there was something taught in class that the student may not have understood the first time in class.
