I recommend Alvarado Highschool if you are wanting to get ahead in college, the academic preparation for college is crazy helpful. I am a senior in highschool and only have alittle bit left until I graduate with an associates degree. I believe that the school needs some work but over all is a school that tries their best.

It taught me well, went here my whole life. They dont offer many scholarships like other schools. They need to prepare students for college more. But they have been trying to become more involved with more things. The district has evolved into something better than it used to be.
My experience at Alvarado hasn't been terrible, but I would like to see change. I loved my elementary, intermediate, and junior high days, but I've found that as I get older, the teachers care less. Most teachers care more about sports or passing state test than actually teaching, and a lot of teachers act like they're still in high school. I also think the administration is part of the problem. They put too much pressure on the teachers to do everything perfectly, when in reality nothing's perfect and everything can change, including children's personalities and attitudes. Overall it's not a bad school but there should definitely be change.
