Alvin High School Reviews

Alvin High School definitely was a good school as far as my experience went. Majority of my teachers really cared about my learning skills and how each student did in the class. I was involved in every way my schedule allowed and there we some very understanding faculty. I strongly support Alvin high school in how they are strict about enforcing dress code. Although I had a wonderful experience, some do not. And I feel that it's the faculty who don't give as much effort. When the student quits on the class, quits on the teacher, and quits on themselves, the teacher quits on them and instead they need to help or try to get the student on top and involved. Of corse if the student refuses the help then at least the teacher knows they tried. The clubs and organizations worked great with all students and diversity excelled in every corner of school. It is definitely somewhere I'll be proud to call my Alma Mater one day
I really enjoyed the academic atmosphere and the fact that it was a vast open campus. I would like to see more funding for extracurricular activities, because colleges now a days are more likely to pick students who are involved with these things. If there were more funding for the activities and clubs to work with then I feel as if more students would be willing to join.
Alvin high school is a great school I have really enjoyed the four years that I have attended. The atmosphere is very accepting and there are great teachers, there has never been a time where I have not felt accepted. The afterschool clubs have been an amazing experience I have built so many new friendships and have developed great respect towards several teachers, if I would have the opportunity to attend the school again I wouldn't mind doing it for a second time it has been great!
