Alton High School is a facility better equip for producing lies than well-prepared students. The school is more worried about cradling a few select athletes and catering to the middle upper class than truly helping the low income students who struggle to succeed. Alton is full of bright promising students with low income backgrounds, they promise hope and help, yet, somehow it seems these students still never cross the graduation stage. Alton High School claims diversity and equal opportunity, yet they are a main antagonist in the rift that has impacted the school at its foundation.

Alton High did a great job of preparing me for college, and offered so many dual-credit opportunities for me. I started my career at a four-year university as a sophomore! This is also a very large, diverse school, so I met many friends and got to experience several other cultures.
This district is one of the best. We have an amazing sports program, and find the arts program equally important. Kindness is meant to be spread throughout all schools. Students are rewarded for positive behavior, and although mischief does occur, it is handled well and with respect. Students and staff are very diverse, and we all learn from each other. Overall, I am proud to have achieved my education in this district.
