Alvin High School was an interesting experience, troublesome at first but smooth sailing in the end. The faculty are great and responsive, communicate well and look out for all students alike. The only thing worth changing is the approach to learning by teaching students comprehensive information that is useful and interesting rather than year-long preparation for standardized testing. This kind of atmosphere fosters encouragement and inspires student to strive to meet their full potential.

What I enjoy about Alvin High School is that it is an open campus. At the end of each year we take advantage of that and have our annual Club Day in the middle of the open campus and play games with our peers. Something I would like to see change in Alvin High School is the involvement of the teachers with all the students not just select students. I want to see that every student is allowed the same priveledges no matter the race, religion, place of origin, sexual orientations, or even the different groups and activities a student is in.
In my experience at Alvin High School, I've had the best teachers. They are all so passionate about what they do and they truly want to see the students succeed. It's fascinating to hear them teach because they are all so educated and even have actual experience in working with the subject they teach. For an example my government teacher worked in a congressman's office and occasionally works in the courthouse.
