    Overall Experience: The teachers provide many opportunities to help students learn more, not only for the sake of a grade, but to help further the student body's knowledge.

    Overall Experience: I really enjoyed attending Alvin High School. Compared with my previous high school, it offered infinitely more technical and AP courses, and I felt challenged in all the courses I chose. Extracurricular activities were given a high priority, as well as career development and college prep. I could not have gotten into the amazing university that I had without the help from my high school.

    Overall Experience: The best part about this school is how open the campus is. One of the few things i don't like is there isn't enough connecting roofs for the rain. If it rains you almost always have to walk across the whole school.
