The Van Alstyne Staff, for the most part, have done a very good job preparing me for college. The teachers were very attentive and took a personal interest in my learning. However, one thing I would change would have to be that the school district tends to hold kids back from their full potential. If the superintendent is challenged with a student voicing their opinion, he usually threatens them with punishment instead of listening to what that student has to say and creating a compromise. The school also should let seniors out early if they don't have class. Every other senior in America gets to do this and it's dumb that you're keeping us in school to try to keep us off drugs. Do you know how many times I have seen kids come out of the bathroom high? A ton. So kids are gonna do what they want anyways, might as well let the sober kids get out of school early.

The teachers really care about you and your future education. However, the dress code could be a little more relaxed, let the boys grow beards. Besides the dress code I have no other complaints about the school. Coming from a big school to little van Alstyne it was easy to tell that the environment was much better and there was a lot less alcohol and drug issues, witch is a very big positive. van Alstyne High School is a great school!
Van Alstyne High School was a good school economy and it focused mainly on us students to prepare for college and to make a future for ourselves. It is a good, loving school that treats there students fair and really well. High school was the best years of my life and I actually loved being at school for once and to get better at life to achieve my personal goals as an athlete and as a student now becoming an adult. My experience with this school was having so many memories that made me feel so happy with all of my friends and family being apart of this community.
