I have loved attending Alter! The environment is very welcoming and all of the students and staff are friendly and encouraging. The academics are challenging and will prepare you well for college. The staff is excellent and supportive, although, as with every school, there are a few disappointing teachers. However, my overall experience had been immensely positive.

I like that Alter prepared me well for college, not only academically but as a person as well. The teachers there are more than willing to help you at anytime if you are having trouble with anything. They have many clubs and acitivities you can get involved with during your time there. The sports teams are amazing and teach you how to preservere to reach your goals. When I went there I felt very safe going anywhere on campus at any point in time.
The only thing I would change about Alter would be facilities. They're not always as clean as I would like them to be. We are also not a very diverse school, which is something I would love to see!
Archbishop Alter High School is one of the best schools I have attended and I have been to a few. Everything is college prep related and they have so many courses you can take. It's a school of love and encouragement! Everyone there is so dedicated to their studies. I am going their currently and I will be the first of many to say " I made the right decsion attending Alter!
