    "I couldn't have asked for a worse experience as well. Just to explain my experience in a nutshell, I don't think I have ever seen teachers and students this lazy before in my life. Everyone who says the Alamo Heights academics and teachers are exceptional must not have been to any other schools. Truthfully, the teachers are not dedicated to helping you become better students. In addition, the academic standards are VERY low. Not to mention the social aspect of the school. Alamo Heights is easily said as a complete bully and clique hotspot, and that's the truth. I have encountered MANY people leaving not only becasue of the poor academics, but the people. This school claims to have strict dress code policies as well. I think you could ask anyone in the area and they will say that they have never seen anyone wear those short of shorts, or that see through of a top before than at Alamo Heights. VERY insufficient and lazy middle school experience concerning teachers/faculty, academics, and extracurricular activities. Eventually I switched just before high school so I could atleast try to get in to a good college."

    "I couldn't have asked for a worse high school experience than what I got at Heights. Sure, the academics are solid; but that doesn't make up for the fact that the people are shallow and flat out rude. Despite coming from money, these kids never once accepted me or gave me the time of day. They never reached out, or ever included me in anything in the entire 6 years I was in Alamo Heights ISD (jr. high 12th grade). I always seeked their friendship; but they never wanted mine. It s not just the students that I'm calling out; it s everyone: the students, the stuck up parents who raised their insolent, snotty children, and the teachers/faculty who only cared about the school s reputation and not actually trying to shape their kids into decent people. They all have attitudes. If there s one word that I can use to describe Alamo Heights: it s fake. NOTE to everyone: If you didn t grow up here (your whole life), then it s difficult to fit in. I basically was invisible every day at this school. No one ever noticed me. I'll never move back to Heights nor will I ever raise a family here. It was a huge disappointment, causing me nothing but depression and grief throughout my childhood."

    "As a HISPANIC former student that did NOT come from a wealthy background (hard-working, lower-middle class), I will say that I am so thankful I attended Alamo Heights as it prepared me and my siblings very well for college (3 of us ended up at Top 30 universities) and the real world. I think it prepared all of us to learn to compete and not expect anything to be handed to us. My teachers always encouraged me to try my hardest and do more. Even as a kindergartener, my teachers saw my potential and encouraged my parents to have me take a test to be in the HEIGHTS program, a program in AH elementary schools for gifted students. I finally passed the test in 2nd grade, and my teachers continued to push me to do better in my GT/Pre-AP/AP classes in middle school and HS. I ended up graduating in the Top 10% of my class and got accepted (with scholarships) to a number of Top 25 universities. Socially, I had a lot of friends, and while there were definitely cliques (like at any HS), I think by Junior year, most of the groups got along. I can honestly say that if I ran into any single person I graduated with today, I would feel comfortable catching up and having a conversation with them."

    "This school has NOT earned the highest TEA rank which says EVERYTHING. Academics are WEAK, the achievement gap is HIGH, AP class scores DO NOT match up with AP test scores, grade inflation is ULTRA-HIGH, I suspect that most students make it into college, but CANNOT stay past their freshman year, family name and income dictate grades, punishments and advancements. Moral character is DISMAL!! When someone tells you that they are the best in SA and that you should send your child to school there, ask, "Why are they not ranked EXEMPLARY?""

    "I graduated from Alamo Heights High School a long time ago and returned for my class reunion and realized it is still the great school I attended so long ago. It prepared me for college and for life."
