Alameda High School is generally poorly funded, and our teachers have some of the lowest wages statewide. However, we do have plenty of resources, and the administration does its best to help their students achieve their next steps after high school; whether it's working, college, or military. The College and Career Center has been instrumental to me making decisions about schools I am considering applying to, as well as clarifying the application process. A few of my teachers have been extremely helpful in helping prepare me for AP tests and writing letters of recommendation. Of course, like in any school, I have a fair share of incompetent teachers, and our administration takes a long time to make decisions, so I still wouldn't consider my school to be fantastic, but I am getting an education.
I think personally as someone who is more focused on grades than sports, alameda is a good district that gives good opportunities to pick your own pace and learn the best way you can. Besides academics, alameda’s school districts recently banned the usual discriminatory dress code that prevented mainly girls from having as much freedom as men when getting ready to go to school. With that old dress code abolished, girls can more openly express their styles through clothing. Also, being in the bay area, there is tons of racial and lgbtq diversity in the school and discrimination is not tolerated. it gives a safe environment for minority groups.
It is the best school in the district. But overall, it is fairly average, with some exceptions. One thing that excels for Alameda High School is that there are some incredible teachers at the school amongst some mediocre and few bad ones. Some of the incredible teachers include Mrs. Roenisch who teaches AP Lang and AP Lit and takes a Socratic seminar approach to her teaching as she was a former lawyer, D. Kim who teaches Pre-Calculus who genuinely cares for his students and takes time to help each student, Mrs. Turpin who teaches AP World history who prepares you very well for a college course, and many others. The school is very safe and in a very safe neighborhood of Alameda. You are allowed to eat off-campus and the school is in the center of Park Street where it is lined with restaurants with many student discounts. The school is quite unfunded in its resources, especially for the arts except for musical theater. However, our newly renovated Kofman building is gorgeous.
