Alamo Heights Independent School District Reviews

Overall I had a very positive experience with school. The main thing I would change relates more the state than my school specifically...standardized testing! I have dyslexia so putting me in the same pigeon hole as an average thinker in unfair, unproductive and demotivating!

Along this same line of thought are the inflated G.P.A.'s for grades over 100%. This "new math" is skewing the ranking system. As yes, you guessed it, the ranking system is poor at best.

I first attended to Alamo Heights back in 2017 as a sophomore. I automatically liked the school. And since it is a smaller school, you can easily make friends. Ever since I've been there, everyone says Alamo Heights is the BEST FREAKING SCHOOL IN SAN ANTONIO. Their academic level is great. Alamo Heights just never seems to fail. It looks so good on your resume. If your planning on having a child attend to go to a good college/university, I recommend that you enroll them in Alamo Heights because any college will accept any student because of the school they go to. The only downside about going to this school is their diversity. This school has mostly caucasians. It's a lot of white people. It's barely any diversity. There's some Latinos that goes there but every other race are singled out. It's hard for me to make friends as well coming from being an African-American girl. I managed to make a couple of friends with people I can relate to.
Overall pleasant experience in the district, however, there were instances of substance abuse and bullying at the high school which did affect my experience as a whole. If pointed out to staff, the issues were addressed, but most students were reluctant to be a "tattle-tale". I went to this district 1st through 12th grade and I very much enjoyed Cambridge, as for Middle School, the teachers I had were harsher and less understanding, but I just chalk that up tot heir personalities. Overall, the high school was nice (other than the aforementioned flaws) and I would most likely send my children to this district in the future.
