Alvin High School definitely was a good school as far as my experience went. Majority of my teachers really cared about my learning skills and how each student did in the class. I was involved in every way my schedule allowed and there we some very understanding faculty. I strongly support Alvin high school in how they are strict about enforcing dress code. Although I had a wonderful experience, some do not. And I feel that it's the faculty who don't give as much effort. When the student quits on the class, quits on the teacher, and quits on themselves, the teacher quits on them and instead they need to help or try to get the student on top and involved. Of corse if the student refuses the help then at least the teacher knows they tried. The clubs and organizations worked great with all students and diversity excelled in every corner of school. It is definitely somewhere I'll be proud to call my Alma Mater one day

All schools have ups and downs but in the end my school never gives up on us, and does what's possible so we can have right futures.

I've felt excluded so much. I was a trainer and because I never tried to be a favorite of sucked up to the head trainer, I was basically punished for it. Something I really liked doing became miserable.
