Senior: The past for years at Alhambra has been a great experience all around. Though High School can have its ups and downs as it is, I never had a problem getting up and knowing I was at a school that had my back. I think the school has developed immensely since my Freshman year, and it is continuing to grow in all aspects. They are spirited, welcoming/supportive, ready to teach/learn, and are always creating new memories inside and outside of the classroom. I would like to see the school give back to the community more as years go on, focus more efficient ways to teach kids in the future, and become a little more lenient when it comes to planning student activities. But if you are randomly moving to the East Bay and are looking for a good High School to transfer your child into, this school is the happy-medium for sure and I could not be more proud to be a Bulldog for life!

Alum: I loved Stevenson (alum, Class of '15), so this comment should be taken as a critique for improvement rather than a summation of my experience (if it wasn't stellar, I wouldn't mention it).
Stevenson absolutely should (and needs to) do more for increasing its diversity and financial aid. At my time, only <30% of students were on some aid of any sort, and the result is a relatively homogeneous student body. The faculty were tremendously supportive of me (low-income) but the administration wasn't quite there. While I do recognize it's a tricky business being supportive of low-income/otherwise-marginalized students while also making ends meet, it's tremendously important. Stevenson is absolutely capable of making these changes and has an obligation to (beyond "Diversity Week" and guest speakers). If you're reading this and you're involved with Stevenson, it should be your priority to support these goals too!
