Alvarado High School Reviews
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.
Alvarado High School does not by any means have the best general classes. In order to actually learn, one must try to join upper level classes, though few do. The teachers do little to encourage their stidents, and often give up before the year even begins, because they don't see an entire class failing as their problem. The only acveption to this are the upper level teachers who actually ENJOY TEACHING. The diversity is horrible, leaving little room for anyone different from the "normal". The racist mascot reflects heavily on how the majority thinks. As far as college readiness, I personally have seen very few people who actually know what they're doing and seem prepared for what's to come. The only thing I have ever found to be fun or above average, are the student led organizations. More often than not, it encourages a student to delve outside their comfort zone and try new things. Something the school as a whole does not seem to encourage.
