On Resources & Facilities: The school will cut corners to save money whenever they can. During the warm months the building is a sauna and in the cold months the building is an ice box.

On Student Culture & Diversity: Alamosa High School follows the clique social scene. The athletes tend to be the most popular. They do enough work to pass classes, but the bare minimum. They bully the rest of the school and make poor decisions in and out of the classroom, including cheating and drinking and substance abuse.

High School Senior

On Health & Safety: Parents are required to sign paperwork stating whether or not their children can take certain medications, but out school refuses to give out medication, so why sign paperwork. There is one school nurse for the entire district and travels from building to building and she is hardly ever at the high school to provide her services.

High School Senior

On Sports & Fitness: There is many students with great athletic abilities but they are not challenged by their teachers or encouraged by their coaches to improve their academic performance. Coaching is also very poor. Many coaches appear to be better than they are due to the talent of their teams.

High School Senior

On Academics: Most teachers complain about grading and I feel they do not accurately grade their students' performances they grade based on how they think certain individuals would have done. The jocks or athletes often cheat just to pass.
