    "Academically, it is a great school. There are a wide variety of classes, including a lot of vocational classes. I chose the major that I am going into because of an architectural drafting class I took at Alton High. The honors classes had high expectations for the students and challenged the students to work harder."

    "I was in the marching band for all four years. It was a great experience. I was in the percussion section. We became like a family. I strongly suggest students getting involved in extracurricular activities. You will create lasting relationships and it will make school much more enjoyable."

    "This school is unique because of the people I have been able to meet. There is a large amount of diversity wether it's the foreign exchange students sharing their stories or the differing interests of our students. We have a wonderful music program and strong athletics. Our art department just won 1st in conference and our CTE department continues to grow! We have a large exchange of experiences."

    "The teachers truly interact with the students by not only reserving entire days for collaboration, but also take time to listen to students' personal issues. Teachers and administrators have a trusting relationship which allows for the students to engage in teaching assistant positions, office assistants, and interns for local companies. In fact, I have even had independent studies in which I can explore topics outside of our engineering curriculum while earning credit! My teachers are so supportive and positive."

    "Alton High is one of the best schools in it's area. It's big enough to you can find friends easily, and small enough to not be intimidated. We have lots of school spirit, football/basketball/hockey games attract large crowds. We are apart of the SWC, which is a large conference. Student Council is responsible for many things and they normally do a good job. The dress code is reasonable this year compared to others. Really strict on tardies lately. There are so many clubs and organizations to get involved in, and students can create them. Mainly white and black kids, but it is culturally diverse. Many different classes and dual credit classes. Most teachers really work with you to make sure you're not going to fall behind. The food is absolutely horrible, and it's now free for all students. I recommend taking a lunch."
