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.

Alamo heights is a very close and cultural school district. The class sizes are not large, and there is a very family like atmosphere. The school is kept clean, and the teachers are always willing to help. The sports and clubs are very interactive, and there are possibilities for everyone to be involved if they wish!
Alamo Heights is a great academic environment with very useful resources in every classroom. However, the atmosphere on campus can be very toxic. Because it's so competitive, some students push themselves to the point of breaking. They're constantly pressured to take all AP classes, be at the top of their grade and never fall behind. Although these are reasonable goals, I've seen how it can affect a student's mental and physical health. There's also a huge lack of awareness about the importance of mental health on campus. After the new cafeteria was built, the construction seems promising. The quality of the food has improved greatly, the cafeteria staff is very friendly and the building itself is modern and refreshing.
