Alamo Heights has been a very unique experience due to the community and the reputation it holds. I appreciate and am grateful for the academic resources and innovation provided by the school board and generous donors. Programs such as Business Incubator and Destination Imagination have taught me a lot about leadership and teamwork. The wealthy community has allowed students to have countless opportunities available at all times, which is not see very often in public schools. Something the district can definitely work on is its preppy, rude reputation amongst other schools. Alamo Heights kids often live in their own bubble and consider themselves better than others, causing uncalled for behavior, therefore upholding the generational reputation. In the past, the school board has favored white students over others because of their economic relationship with the school. More transparency between the board and students would help propel honest, progressive, conversations.
I think Alamo Heights is a place with a decent reputation and decent academics. However, the community fostered within the students body is toxic and potentially harmful to many students. I have had various personal experiences that have left me jaded, and wanting change. I think that gender equal opportunities and respect for females among students could be vastly improved. Additionally, Alamo Heights is not a community that values diversity and acceptance, and the ultra-conservative atmosphere can sometimes be aggressive and threatening. Education on issues outside of the classroom within the student community should be improved as much as possible. These issues could include sexual assault, sex education, education on substance abuse and heightening the emphasis on the importance of social inclusion.
I came into this district my freshman year of high school... so I was very nervous! However, it was turned out to be an amazing experience. The classes I took challenged me and all my teachers were very engaged and passionate. I found that as each year of high school progressed, I became more and more comfortable in my self, my environment, and more confident in my place at the high school. My mom has been a teacher in this district for around 10 years and that has given me a lot of time to watch her. She has loved her job, the students, teachers, and the mission of the district. Watching her has made me more comfortable as well.
