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 does well with college placement. The majority of students go on to some form of further education. This is especially true for the accelerated students, however, there is room for improvement regarding the development of the baseline students and those who are below par. The same can be said for the faculty, there are some outstanding teachers, however there are a lot of mediocre and some below par educators and staff members.
I really like attending Alter. The school is very challenging and prepares you for college. I'd like to see a little bit more effort from teachers in regards of caring about students and helping them though. I wish there was more diversity at the school as well and the sports programs are fantastic, but I'd like to see different sports as well.
