Alvin High School Reviews

I attended Alvin High School and graduated in 2012. From my personal experience, Alvin was a great place to go to high school. Most of the teachers cared about the material and did their best to teach. Most of the classes I took were pre-ap, AP, or dual credit. There were plenty of extracurricular activities to attend and take a part in. From sports, arts, culinary, band, theatre, academic honors, there are many areas of interest that all kinds of students can take part in.
However, It was easy for kids to skip because of how large the campus is. There are also plenty of hiding places that are unattended and become skip zones, smoke zones, or make out zones. I know security has gotten better since I went to school because my younger sister attended school there also. There are more areas gated off and you can only enter campus through a few entrances.
There is also a lot of construction going on to make the school more beautiful and to replace the older buildings.

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.
